Huge cluster of complete dinosaur eggs

12 posts in this topic

The first complete pterosaur dinosaur eggs have been found in China.

The discovery in the Xinjiang Uygur Region, western China, is the world's largest and most well-preserved cluster of three-dimensional fossils ever found.

Very cool find, only quibble about is that ptserosaurs were not dinosaurs. They're a separate group of creatures.

I wonder if any viable DNA will be found?

It may not be possible, but i would love to see a large T rex or Raptor brought back to life.

Nah, DNA has a relatively short half life unfortunately. I'd love to see some of the larger pterosaurs in flight.

Pterosaurs are flying reptiles and not Dinosaurs..I wonder how this kind of error can still occur in some websites.

Because its to the general public and not enthusiasts/paleontologists.

Most people just lump together dinosaurs, synapsids,marine and flying reptiles.

Will they be able to extract DNA?

No, maybe some scraps but DNA decays to fast to survive the amount of time these eggs were fossilized.
