Researchers have discovered large numbers of fossil dinosaur eggs in northeastern Spain.
The eggs were found at Coll de Nargo in the Spanish province of Lleida which during the Late Cretaceous Period would have been covered in marshlands. The eggs are believed to be from giant sauropod dinosaurs and include four types never seen before. Coll de Nargo has long been thought to be one of the most important dinosaur nesting sites in Europe.
"We had never found so many nests in the one area before," said palaeontologist Albert Garcia Selles. "In addition, the presence of various oospecies (eggs species) at the same level suggests that different types of dinosaurs shared the same nesting area."
"Researchers in northeastern Spain say they've uncovered hundreds of dinosaur egg fossils, including four kinds that had never been found before in the region."
