Today the Department of Awesome Antiquities is marveling at the world’s oldest turducken. This 48-million-year-old fossil contain a snake (Palaeopython fischeri) that had just eaten a lizard (Geiseltaliellus maarius) that itself had an insect in its stomach. It’s a nesting doll of fossils and it’s only the second of its kind that’s ever been found.
Head over to National Geographic to learn more about this awesome discovery.
