Dinosaurs and birds hatch in the same way, study finds
Scientists have revealed what might be the best-preserved dinosaur embryo ever found, a discovery that could shine new light on the biological links between birds and the prehistoric reptiles. Found in China, the fossilized egg dates back at least 66 mn years and seems to show that some dinosaurs would get into a tucked position before hatching — a behavior previously thought to be distinctive to birds, according to a study by Chinese and British scientists. The egg belongs to the oviraptorid species of dinosaur, a turkey-sized creature that existed in Asia and North America about 70-125 mn years ago.
