Prehistoric Antarctic World Discovered Frozen in Ice
This article is about plants and animals frozen in the ice from the natural environment of Antarctica over 14 million years ago. The finds include moss, beetles, and midges. These things have been found on the coast of Antarctica, but this find was much further inland than before. The time period these are from is not exactly a warm one, but more like the Arctic in which there were warmer times of the year where hardy plants and animals could live.
