Dinosaur Eggs Found?

Dinosaur Eggs Found?:
Geologists in conflict-prone region, Chechnya, found objects suspected of fossil dinosaur eggs. Fossils of these eggs are incubated by the estimated largest reptile ever inhabited the earth more than 60 million years ago.

"So far we have found 40 eggs, exactly how many numbers are found not yet certain," said Said-Emin Dzhabrailov, geology of the Chechen State University, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The geologists are difficult to ascertain the amount due to these new findings on the surface. "Perhaps there are many that lie in the lower layer," said Said-Emin.

These findings initially revealed during construction of a construction crew to blow up a hillside to build a road near the border with Georgia in the Caucasus Mountains nation.

A team of geologists were combing the area were discovered later that it's shaped like an oval stone. Fossils that have a diameter of 25 centimeters. The stretch length is one meter.

However, geologists are still difficult to identify what species are incubating eggs. Paleontologists needed to answer this.

Said-Enim also went on to say, the local government will make this site as a nature reserve to attract tourists. This step is still done though still somewhat prone areas Chechnya conflict.
