    It is possible to find very old fossils of insects, such as mosquitoes, found in amber.  This is where the real life similarity to the movies ends, however, because it is not as simple as they make it seem to use DNA found within the fossil to recreate a dinosaur.

    Here is a picture of several pieces amber, two of which containing insects:

    Yes, it is true that remains ancient insects are often found in amber. However, it is highly unlikely that they would still contain DNA that would be recoverable as shown in the movie.
