Rare Jurassic-Era Insect Discovered at Arkansas Walmart
Rare Jurassic-Era Insect Discovered at Arkansas Walmart – Smithsonian
Michael Skvarla was on his way to do a little shopping when an interesting-looking insect perched outside the store caught his eye. As an entomologist, Skvarla did what came naturally to him: He snatched the winged creature, took it home, and mounted it alongside all the other critters in his collection. Eight years later, while teaching a virtual class on biodiversity and evolution at Penn State University, Skvarla made the startling realization that the insect might be special.
