Stuck in amber? Why, you could get some D-N-A, like they did for the di-no-sawrsss.

NOM repeated for 99 million years.  That's a lot of nom-age.

Here we see an ant. This ant is engaged in a life or death struggle with the wolf. You can see the ant creeping up on the wolf on all sixes. (a moving arrow is superimposed) Now he stops to observe. Satisfied that the wolf has not heard him, he approaches nearer. With great skill he chooses his moment and then, quick as a limpet, with one mighty bound (the arrow moves to the wolf's throat; the wolf does not move) buries his fangs in the wolf's neck. The wolf struggles to no avail. A battle of this kind can take anything up to fifteen years because the timber ant has such a tiny mouth.

Is this worse than being suspended in gaffa?

Its meal is an extinct relative of the cockroach.
Carry on then, good work Ant.

Still doesn't compare to not wearing 2 million sunblock on Judgement Day.
