Dinosaur eggs discovered in Chechnya


Geologists in Russia’s volatile Chechnya region have discovered what they believe to be fossilized dinosaur eggs laid by one of the huge extinct reptiles that roamed the Earth more than 60 million years ago.

“We’ve found about 40 eggs so far; the exact number has not been established,” said Said-Emin Dzhabrailov, a geologist at the Chechen State University.

A team of geologists stumbled across the smooth, oval rocklike forms, which range from 25 cm to one metre coincidentally on a recent trip to the region’s border with former Soviet Georgia in the Caucasus Mountains, said Dzhabrailov. He said paleontologists were needed to determine which species of dinosaur had laid them.
