Researchers discover 70 million-year-old dinosaur egg fossils in China!.

The round-shaped eggs belonged to plant-eating phytophagous dinosaurs in the late Cretaceous period, researchers said.

The shells, discovered near Foshan in the southeast part China, were found at a depth of about eight metres, preserved in red sandstone, researchers said.

“We found five eggs: three were destroyed, but they are still visible,” said Qiu Licheng from Guangdong’s Archaeological Institute in China.
