It isn't every day that scientists dig up a dinosaur jaw—or unearth the remains of fossilized insects.

So paleontologists couldn't believe their luck when  they found the 75-million-year-old jawbone of a duck-billed hadrosaur in Dinosaur Provincial Park in Canada's Alberta province, topped with a 7-centimeter-wide blob of amber containing traces of trees and sap-sucking aphids.

The "remarkable" two-for-one fossil would have been preserved in an incredibly unlikely chain of events, the researchers write today in Scientific Reports.
