New Delhi: Scientists in India have discovered more than 250 ancient dinosaur eggs.
Scientists, including Harsha Dhiman of the University of Delhi in India, recently discovered 92 nests in the central Indian village of Narmada, where 256 fossil eggs of Titanosaurus (the largest dinosaur species) were found.
From which it has been revealed that these creatures probably belonging to prehistoric times used to build nests like modern birds.
According to the researchers, the eggs were found in a region known for the discovery of dinosaur skeletons and eggs from the late Cretaceous period (shortly before the end of the age of dinosaurs).
The study, published in the journal PLOS, suggests that these dinosaurs probably buried their eggs in burrows, similar to modern-day crocodiles.
According to the researchers, titanosaurs probably laid eggs sequentially, like today’s birds.
Experts believe that the data presented in the research can provide important information about the life and evolution of dinosaurs.
