Extremely Rare Amber
Amber Inclusion/ Larva

There are two ways for animals to make sure their genes survive. Both methods promote procreation of their species. The first method is having a few offspring and taking care of them carefully. The second method is having many (literally hundreds or thousands) of offspring to increase the probability of survivability. Insects tend to fall in the second method. Insects tend to lay many eggs. Not all of the eggs hatch and not all of the larvae survive to become adults. That is the facts of life in the insect world.

Use portable field microscopes to investigate the type of animals that uses the first and second method. Portable field microscopes make it easier for the microscopist or hobbyist to pursue their search for specimens because they are handy.

Because of intense competition, male insects have to have a variety of mating tactics, strategies, and morphologies in attracting a female insect. Examples of these strategies are the following:
