Haul of dinosaur eggs unearthed in China

The incredibly well-preserved fossil eggs were found by accident during excavations on Christmas Day.
The clutch of between 20 and 30 eggs, which are thought to date back 130 million years, were discovered after workers dug up what they initially believed to be an oval-shaped stone.

The eggs have since been taken to Dayu County Museum for identification and further study.

The location of the find, Ganzhou City, has gained such a reputation for its fossil discoveries over the years that it has become unofficially known as the 'hometown of dinosaurs in China.'

While unconfirmed at present, it is thought that these new eggs may be those of the Oviraptor - a small, feathered dinosaur with tiny wings and a beak not dissimilar to that of today's parrots.

Some species of these winged reptiles, such as Ganzhousaurus, are even named after the city itself.

I'm sticking with dragons. Those are really dragon eggs.  And it's just a matter of time until they hatch.

Chinese are superstitious and will prolly think they’re dragon eggs and halt all construction at the site.
