I found a fossilized ant inside my Pen! =p

Amber (or, technically, resinite) is fossilized tree resin (not sap), which has been appreciated for its color and natural beauty since Neolithic

Yes, the pictures are from the movie "Jurassic Park".... the dinosaurs in the film were created by cloning genetic material found in mosquitos that fed on dinosaur blood preserved in AMBER. It sometimes contains animals or plant matter that became caught in the resin as it was secreted. Insects, spiders and their webs, annelids, frogs,crustaceans, bacteria and amoebae, marine microfossils,wood, flowers and fruit, hair, feathers and other small organisms have been recovered in ambers dating to 130 million years ago.

In my case... an ANT

im sorry I dont have a nice camera.... tsk

I dont have any idea how it got inside... hehe.. cool.
