Beijing: In a jaw-dropping incident, as many as 70-million-year-old fossilised dinosaur eggs have been discovered at a building under construction in southeast China’a Foshan city.
According to scientists, the round-shaped eggs belong to phytophagous (plant-eating) dinosaurs from the Cretaceous period. Moreover, the eggs are still being examined by researchers.
“We found five large eggs out of which three were already destroyed but still visible,” said Qui Licheng, a researcher from Guangdong’s Archaeological Institute.
The egg-shells were found at the depth of around 26ft (8m) surrounded by red sandstone which had the eggs’ imprints on it.
