Attack of Spider in Early Cretaceous period
As per reports, an amazing snapshot of spider and prey has been recorded. The fossil record showed the scene, which was 100 million years old. The picture has been painted in amber and shows spider, which has been able to trap a male wasp in its web.
Experts were of the view that the scene must have taken place in the Early Cretaceous period, which prevailed 97 to 110 million years back. The scene had taken place in Hukawng Valley of Myanmar, further asserted experts, who informed the spider was from the family of social orb-weaver spider and male wasp belonged to species Cascoscelio incassus.
Both the species are not present now, but the main thing, which experts would like to discuss, is that such attack of spider is prevalent now also. â€śThis was the waspâ€™s worst nightmare, and it never ended. The wasp was watching the spider just as it was about to be attackedâ€ť, said George Poinar Jr., an entomologist from Oregon State University.
He affirmed that if the picture is seen from his eyes then two activities get witnessed. First is the attack of spider and second is its social life in the Early Cretaceous period.
