Last quote by George Poinar Jr.

Two tiny holes indicate that something picked a tick off the mammal it was feeding on, puncturing it in the process and dropping it immediately into tree sap. The fossilized blood cells, infected with these parasites, are simply amazing in their detail. This discovery provides the only known fossils of Babesia-type pathogens. The life-forms we find in amber can reveal so much about the history and evolution of diseases we still struggle with today. This parasite, for instance, was clearly around millions of years before humans, and appears to have evolved alongside primates, among other hosts.feedback
