Scientists look inside dinosaur eggs

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

One of the planet’s most “bizarre group of dinosaurs” has left behind a 67-million-year-old legacy that is now allowing an international team of scientists a peek inside the animal’s mysterious biological history.

The nesting behavior of oviraptorids is poorly understood, despite the dinosaur having left behind the “most abundant record of fossil dinosaur eggs and clutches.” The two-footed dinosaurs exhibit a “peculiar” nesting pattern, arranging up to 30 paired eggs in three to four rings. To understand where in the egg-laying evolutionary tree they reside, paleontologists from the University of Bonn sought out to determine whether hatchlings emerged from their eggs simultaneously or at different times.
