Scanned SA Dinosaur eggs reveal remarkable findings

Jun 29, 2015 No Comments by

In the late winter of 1976, the world famous fossil collector James Kitching was doing a survey near South Africa’s border with Lesotho. To his surprise he found a tiny clutch of six fossilised eggs along the side of the road at a place known as Rooidraai.
It took five years for skilled palaentologists to remove enough rock matrix from the eggs so that they could be preliminarily identified as the first dinosaur embryos from South Africa and the oldest dinosaur embryos in the world.   See the whole story in The Conversation written by RSSAf Jonah Choiniere, Senior Researcher in Dinosaur Palaentology at University of the Witwatersrand
