Fossilized Grasshopper

Fossil insects are not found in as many deposits or localities as most other invertebrates. Like other organ- isms, 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 the mud and silt.
