A total of 43 dinosaur egg fossils have been discovered on a construction site in Heyuan city, Guangdong Province.
The fossils were discovered deep in the ground outside a hotel, where construction workers were digging to mend a road.
The 43 eggs were stuck into 14 fossils, and 19 of the egg fossils were still intact. One egg was as large as 13 cm—the size of a melon!
Heyuan city earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records after finds of 10,008 dinosaur egg fossils in 2005.
It was subsequently named China’s “home of dinosaurs”. Within the city, dinosaur eggs, bones and footprints have been previously discovered, with more to be found.
