Dinosaur Eggs Discovered Inside Mother – A FirstPublication: National Geographic News Date: April 14, 2005 View Article
Scientists have discovered for the first time a dinosaur with shelled eggs inside her belly. The find yields insight into how dinosaurs made babies and supports the theory that modern birds and dinosaurs are close relatives.
“I don’t think too many people had expected [us] to discover a specimen that actually had eggs inside its body. It’s something we wanted to have, but it’s very surprising we actually got it,” said Tamaki Sato, a paleontologist at the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa.
