Not even death did them part: Fossils locked in sex position.

The findings were published in the October edition of the Indian journal Current Science, which said it was the first time that copulation had been discovered in a fossil state, according to the Press Trust of India news agency.
But voyeurs will need a microscope to view the eternal lovers.
A rare find
The fossils are tiny swartm cells a stage in the development of the fungus myxomycetes also known as the slime mold.
The cells reproduce by fusing, Ranjeet Kar of the Birbal Sahni Institute of Paleobotany in Luchknow reportedly told PTI. Once the cells fuse, long, threadlike appendages knwn as flagella, are lost, he said.
Finding the fossils in a fused position and with their flagella shed, is evidence that the two cells were having sex, Kar said.
The sexual organs being delicate and the time of the conjugation short lived, it is quite rare to get this stage in the fossil state, the study said.
The cells were discoverd in a 30-foot deep dry well in the state of Madhya Pradesh.
