WELL PRESERVED DINOSAUR EMBRYO BELIEVED TO BE 66-MILLION YEARS OLD FOUND IN CHINA

 Chinese scientists have announced the discovery of a perfectly preserved dinosaur embryo that was preparing to hatch from its egg. Researchers believed that it was estimated to be at least 66 million years old.




They described it as a toothless theropod dinosaur and has been named Baby Yingliang.



The discovery has also given the researchers a greater understanding between dinosaurs and modern birds. The fossil shows the behavior seen in the birds shortly before they hatch, which was in curled position known as "tucking".




"This indicates that such behavior in modern birds first evolved and originated among their dinosaur ancestors," Fion Waisum Ma told the AFP news agency.




Oviraptorosaurs, known as "egg thief lizards," were feathered dinosaurs that lived in what is now Asia and North America during the late Cretaceous period-between 100 million to 66 million years ago.
