Scientists announced the discovery Tuesday An extraordinarily well-preserved dinosaur embryo at least 66 million years old is preparing to hatch like a bird.

Fossil of Oviraptosaurus, discovered in Gansho, China, Named “Baby Yingliang” by researchers.

“This is one of the few dinosaur nuclei ever discovered”, The company promised AFP Published by Fionn Wissam Ma, an expert at the University of Birmingham and co-author of the study Science.

“Baby Yingliang” was discovered With a bent back, the legs on the sides of the head and the head tucked into its abdomen. Not found in dinosaurs but very common in birds.

According to scientists, the fossil is 72 to 66 million years old

When the chicks are ready to hatch, they place their head under a wing and allow their hole to be drilled with their hooks. Embryos that do not reach that stage are more likely to die from failed chicks.

“This behavior of modern birds suggests that its origins are in dinosaur ancestors”, Fionn Wise Ma explained.

An alternative might have been identical Crocodiles, Those who accept the sitting posture with only the head tilted to the stomach.

Fossil forgotten for many years

Oviraptosers, Its name means “egg-stealing lizard”, They are feathered dinosaurs that lived in Asia and North America during the Upper Cretaceous.

These may be animals In different ways From Pico Y Subsistence allowance, And its size can range from a monkey to the size of a giant giant. Eight meters long.

Baby Yingliang measures 27 centimeters from head to tail and stays inside her 17-centimeter-long egg At Museo de Historia Natural Yingliang Stone.

According to scientists, the fossil is 72 to 66 million years old The degree of its protection may be due to a sludge that protects it from burying and cleaning.

If it had reached adulthood, it would have measured up to dinosaur size Two or three meters To be long and fed Plants.

The model was part of a multi-group Fossil eggs Set aside for a few years and forgotten.

Researchers suspect that the fossils may contain dinosaurs and that part of the shell found by Baby Yingliang may have been removed.

Steve Brusatte of the University of Edinburgh and member of the research team Steve Brusatte said, “This dinosaur embryo in its egg is one of the most beautiful fossils I have ever seen.

The model is “how The chick curled up In their eggs, many of the characteristics of today’s birds provide additional evidence that they are descended from their dinosaur ancestors, “he added.

Researchers believe Examine the fetus accurately to reveal its entire skeleton.
