Duck-billed dinosaur embryo, oldest and most complete ever found
Scientists in China have discovered the world’s oldest and most complete duck-billed dinosaur embryo fossils. The embryos are 66 to 72 million years old and were found in the Late Cretaceous strata in southern Jiangxi Province.
The egg where the embryo lies takes the shape of an ellipsoid with a length of about 9 centimeters. The egg was discovered in the Late Cretaceous strata in southern Jiangxi Province, with a history of 66 million to 72 million years.
This is the first time that hadrosaur embryo fossils have been found in China. The discovery will help scientists better understand the evolution of hadrosaurs and their eggs.
The embryos are currently on display at the Fujian Science and Technology Museum.
How do we study the behavior of dinosaurs?
One way scientists study the behavior of dinosaurs is by analyzing their fossilized eggs. By studying the embryo fossils, they can learn about the development of the dinosaurs and their reproduction habits. This information can help scientists understand more about how dinosaurs behaved in their natural environments.
The recent discovery of two well-preserved hadrosaurus embryo fossils in China provides us with some of the most complete evidence of dinosaur behavior ever discovered. These fossils give us a rare glimpse into the early development of these creatures, and provide new insights into their reproductive habits.
The hadrosaurus is a type of duck-billed dinosaur that was common in North America during the Late Cretaceous period. These animals were herbivores that lived in groups, and their eggs were typically laid in nests.
The two newly discovered embryo fossils come from eggs that were found in the Ganzhou Basin in Jiangxi Province, China. The eggs are ellipsoid in shape and measure about 9 centimeters long. They are believed to be 66 million to 72 million years old.
The hadrosaurus embryos are the most complete examples of dinosaur behavior ever found. They provide us with a valuable window into the early development of these animals, and help us better understand their reproductive habits. With this new information, we can continue to piece together the puzzle of what dinosaurs were really like.
