    Default Giant 80million year old eggs of largest dinosaur to walk the earth discovered

    ¤=[Post Update]=¤

    Scientists have unearthed 80-million-year-old dinosaur eggs, thought to belong to the largest land animals of all time, in an "exceptional" discovery.

    The archeologists made the discovery in Brazil, at the first titanosaur nesting site ever found.

    Titanosaurs could grow up to 85 feet as adults, experts believe, and would bury around 10 eggs at a time to allow them to brood.

    The nest, which dates back to the Cretaceous period, was discovered in an abandoned limestone mine in the rural area of Ponte Alta, near the city of Uberaba.

    Experts believe titanosaurs were wiped out when the Earth was hit by a huge meteor, marking the end of the Cretaceous period.

    Palaeontologist Joao Ismael da Silva discovered the fossils in Ponte Alta in the 1990s, but the results of the analysis of the eggs has only just been published

    • Perfectly-preserved Dinosaur Embryo Found Inside Fossilized Egg In China

    A 66 to 72-million-year-old dinosaur embryo has been discovered inside a fossilized egg that scientists describe as one of the best-preserved specimens of its kind ever found. The embryo, dubbed “Baby Yingliang,” was discovered in Ganzhou in southern China. It belongs to a toothless theropod dinosaur, or oviratorosaur. Scientists from the University of Birmingham in the U.K. and the China University of Geosciences in Beijing observed the embryo in a "tucking" position, which was previously thought to be the pre-hatching behaviour of birds. "This behaviour has long been thought unique to birds but now we see evidence in our fossil that even in non-bird dinosaurs they might have the same type of pre-hatching behaviour," said Fion Waisum Ma, a joint lead author of the study from Birmingham University.
