Jurassic cricket's song recreated
Scientists have reconstructed the song of a cricket that chirped 165 million years ago.
A remarkably complete fossil of the prehistoric insect enabled the team to see the structures in its wings that rubbed together to make the sound.
The international team report their findings in the journal PNAS.
Dr Fernando Montealegre Zapata from the University of Bristol, who led the team, worked out the frequency and tone of the insect's song by examining its music-making structures and comparing them to those of modern insects.
This clip is the sound that the team produced.
