Dinosaur EGGS found: Forty discovered buried underground for 230 million years
Construction workers found 43 eggs, 19 of which were intact, during repairs to a road in Heyuan, a city in Guangdong Province, southern China.
Experts believe the eggs would be from 65 to 230 million-years-old, and dating back to the Mesozoic Era when massive monstors T-rex roamed the planet.
They were grouped toghether in 14 separate fossil rocks, according to delighted archaeologist Du Yuanli, who runs Heyuan Dinosaur Fossil Museum.
The museum was recognised in 2004 in the Du Yuanli, who runs Heyuan Dinosaur Fossil Museum s for housing the world’s largest collection of dinosaur egg fossils – 10,008 a number now set to grow.
The biggest egg of the latest discovery measures 13cm across and tests will happen to determine the species.
Mr Yuanli said: “The eggs were found in the rock strata of red sandstone, an environment in which other dinosaur egg fossils have also previously been found.
“Further examination of the fossils is required to determine the species of the dinosaur eggs.”
China, particularly Heyuan is a fossil hotspot with many recent discoveries.
Residents are being urged to report any nbew discoveries to authorities busy.”
