Reconstruction of oviraptorosaur dinosaurs incubating eggs

May 16, 2018

Nagoya- This handout undated artist impression released on Tuesday, 15 May 2018 by the University of Nagoya shows a reconstruction of oviraptorosour dinosaurs incubating eggs.

Small species sat directly on the eggs, whereas larger ones are thought to have settled in the middle of a clutch, surrounded by the eggs so as not to crush them.

Most dinosaurs buried the eggs they laid and hoped for the best, but some species, including a few hefty ones, built nests and pampered unhatched offspring much as birds do today, researchers reported. AFP-Jiji Press
