100 million insect

A very rare discovery was made by scientists; they have found an insect which lived 100 million years ago. This insect is different from other insects and it is bit weird. The insect has a triangular head which was looking like an alien was preserved in amber in Myanmar. The insect was small with no wings which tells us that it aint a fly. It has some unusual features which were not known till now.

“The insect is different from the existing species and the scientists have never seen this kind of insect till now” said by George, a professor at Oregon University in America. The weird thing about this insect is its triangular shaped head and its long neck which looks like human’s neck. This insect is very different from other insects as this one can see by turning its head 180 degrees on any side.
