Huge cache of dinosaur eggs found in India


A giant cache of hundreds of dinosaur egg clusters have been found in southern India.

It was a chance find discovered when a team of scientists were locating a place to excavate an ancient riverbed in the state of Tamil Nadu. As they dug deeper they saw layers of what looked like fossilised eggs.

The photos and samples were then sent to various universities who confirmed that they were dinosaur eggs.

Each egg is the size of a football – about 13 to 23cm in diameter, lying buried in sandy nests.
