Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers at the University of Calgary and Montana State University have found a small North American dinosaur that incubated its eggs in a way similar to some modern brooding birds. In a report of their findings that appeared recently in the journal Paleobiology, the scientists wrote about their close examination of the shells of fossil eggs found in Alberta and Montana from a small meat-eating dinosaur called Troodon. They said...

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online While these never actually walked the Earth, and didn´t fully develop or hatch, a trove of dinosaur embryos could give researchers rare insight into their development. Paleontologists working in China recently unearthed what could be the earliest collection of fossilized dinosaur embryos to date, and it has provided the researchers with a new opportunity to study ongoing growth patterns and development of the prehistoric...

FECYT - Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology A study headed by the Miquel Crusafont Catalan Palaeontology Institute has for the first time documented detailed records of dinosaur egg fossils in the Coll de Nargó archaeological site in Lleida, Spain. Up until now, only one type of dinosaur egg had been documented in the region. The archaeological site in Coll de Nargó containing dinosaur eggs lies some 8 kilometers to the west of the town that bears the...

It is the only dinosaur egg in the world to have an oval shape, similar to that of chicken eggs Before her death in December 2010, Nieves López Martínez, palaeontologist of the Complutense University of Madrid, was working on the research of dinosaur eggs with a very peculiar characteristic: an ovoid, asymmetrical shape. Together with Enric Vicens, palaeontologist of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, the two scientists conducted an exhaustive...

Scientists from Chechnya said on Tuesday they have discovered what seem to be the largest fossilized dinosaur eggs ever recorded while combing a remote mountainous area of the North Caucasus region. Images of the large stash of dinosaur eggs were uploaded by the Chechen State University to its website following the exciting discovery, which occurred on April 9 during an expedition to study two waterfalls that had been previously uncharted. The remote site was shown after the images were...

An Argentine-Swedish research team has reported a 70 million years old pocket of fossilized bones and unique eggs of an enigmatic birdlike dinosaur in Patagonia. What makes the discovery unique are the two eggs preserved near articulated bones of its hindlimb. This is the first time the eggs are found in a close proximity to skeletal remains of an alvarezsaurid dinosaur, says Dr. Martin Kundrát, dinosaur expert from the group of Professor Per Erik Ahlberg at Uppsala...

A new study comparing the eggs of various biological species has determined that some types of Easter eggs purchased in the marketplace may actually have been inspired by dinosaurs, not birds. According to an Asian News International (ANI) report, research conducted by paleontologists in Spain and the UK analyzed fossil eggs estimated to be 70 million years old that were discovered in the Pyrenees. Their goal was to determine whether or not the eggs in question had been laid by birds or...

Exceptionally preserved fossils of insect cocoons have allowed researchers in Argentina to describe how wasps played an important role in food webs devoted to consuming rotting dinosaur eggs. The research was published July 15th in the scientific journal Palaeontology. The approximately 70 million year old eggs, from gigantic titanosaur sauropod dinosaurs were discovered in 1989 in the Patagonia region of Argentina, well known for yielding fossils of sauropod dinosaur eggs and even embryonic...

Geologists in Tamil Nadu, India, said a trove of dinosaur eggs was peeping out of the sand beds on grazing land in plain site as they walked by. The site is part of an area rich in ancient organisms dating back 140 million years, geologists told The Times of India. We found clusters and clusters of spherical eggs of dinosaurs. And each cluster contained eight eggs, M.U. Ramkumar, geology lecturer of the Periyar University, said. He said each egg was about 5 to 8 inches in diameter. They were...

Michael Knell carried a 75-million-year-old turtle into Bozeman Deaconess hospital recently, then laid it carefully on the bed that slides into the CT scanner. Hardly an ordinary patient, the turtle fossil was only the second in the world found with eggs inside it, said Knell, a Montana State University graduate student in earth sciences. His turtle (from the genus Adocus) came from the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Kanab, Utah. The previously described turtle, which was...

Citipati, meaning "funeral pyre lord", is a genus of theropod dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous Period of what is now Mongolia. It is known from the Djadokhta Formation in the Gobi Desert. It is one of the best known oviraptorids thanks to a number of well preserved fossils, some of which have been found in brooding positions on top of egg nests. These findings help solidify the link between non-avian dinosaurs and birds. It was first described by James M. Clark, Mark Norell, and Rinchen...
