Audio: 165-Million-Year-Old Cricket Song Comes Back to Life


A cricket song last heard 165 million years ago has been played again.

To reconstruct the sound, paleontologists compared microscopic wing structures of fossil Archaboilus musicus, a Jurassic ancestor of modern crickets, to contemporary wings. Crickets sing — or, technically, “stridulate” — by rubbing together the ridged edges of their wings.

From noises generated by modern features, the researchers could extrapolate what A. musicus sounded like.


Hear the sound @ the link!

I wonder why they really recreated this sound?
