below is a video containing photo stills and micro ct stills as well as 3d spin arounds based on this particular tree hollow. The large number of pterosaurs present in the hollow when it was flooded with amber meant that there are numerous 2d shapes created by their patagia all with the same half moon style wing extensions. Examination of the ct scan using ray-casting has helped identify the best course to proceed with further imaging techniques.

This historical piece of amber has finally been obtained from the mine owner in Hukawng valley in a government transaction, micro-CT scans will be available soon or can be requested, the renderings reveal a nest of arboreal volants with wing claws and elongate digit IVs. Visually protofeathers full forms and an impeccable skull can clearly be seen upon observation. (weight approximately 284 grammes)
Black and White versionunless stated all images on this website are RAW and unedited. Here we also provide a black and white render to inspire amber inclusion lovers to experiment with such techniques in the quest to make full and accurately documented observations, such techniques often help us build the necessary inclusion understanding to be able to proceed with further imaging.
micro CT has been completed in this piece and spin arounds and static X-RAYS shown side by side with macro images will be uploaded soon. CT scan results greatly assist the preparation of further imaging which will enable us to bring you better more informative visuals
We have discovered quite a few birds in amber, they are amongst the hardest of all inclusions to find in Burmite, often they suffer from bad decay, poor amber transparency. Very rarely indeed do we find exceptional bird inclusions in amber and a few of them are shown on this website on various different pages.
