    Gear  /  News
    A unique 46-million-year-old mosquito fossil with a belly full of dried blood has been found in a Montana riverbed, according to United States researchers.

    "It is an extremely rare fossil, the only one of its kind in the world," Dale Greenwalt, lead author of the study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), said. Mr Greenwalt said it might have been blood from a bird, since the ancient mosquito resembles a modern one from the genus Culicidae, which likes to feed on birds.
