First-ever Mosquito Fossil Found with Blood in Abdomen


The National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.  was  given a one-of-a-kind fossil. A researcher, Dale Greenwalt, realized immediately its unique value.

It is, in fact, the only blood-engorged mosquito fossil found, Greenwalt told LiveScience. The fossil is even stranger because it comes from shale, a type of rock formed from sediments deposited at the bottom of bodies of water, as opposed to amber, the age-old remains of dried tree sap, in which insect remnants are generally better preserved. ~ Live Science October 14, 2013

This is not the first fossil found with blood.

This mosquito’s abdomen, and likely its entire body, was never mineralized—i.e., replaced by minerals. Instead, it was preserved as a tiny carcass in a rock, called a compression fossil. Secular researchers have detected hemoglobin remnants like these in several other species, including tyrannosaur, hadrosaur, and mosasaur fossils. ~ see article

Obviously, this fossil occurred rapidly in order for the mosquito to be preserved before decomposing. It’s quite rare that the fragile wings, legs, and even the blood in this mosquito could have survived fossilization. Also, something as fragile as fossil blood heme pigments could not possibly be millions of years old (secular scientists assume an age of a rock and then assume the age of a fossil). This tiny ambassador declares the reality of a catastrophic global flood as God told us in Genesis 7: 21-22 (HCSB):

Every creature perished—those that crawl on the earth, birds, livestock, wildlife, and those that swarm on the earth, as well as all mankind. Everything with the breath of the spirit of life in its nostrils—everything on dry land died.
