This perfectly preserved Fossilized Grasshopper "Pycnophlebia Robusta" measures 9" x 6" specimen. From the Upper Jurassic, Malm zeta 2, in Eichstatt, Bavaria, Germany. Fossil insects are not found in as many deposits or localities as most other invertebrates. Like other organisms, insects are preserved as fossils by a sequence of events that results in their burial in a suitable medium. In order to become fossilized, animals must die in a watery environment and become buried in mud and silt.
