Description

These eggshell bits are rare and wonderful. Dinosaur eggshell is rare enough to begin with, even more so given some countries are declaring them national treasures and restricting or outlawing their export.

The theropod dinosaurs these are said to come from are oviraptor. Oviraptors are very protective and maternal; fossil evidence has shown some have died while brooding their eggs. However, these eggshell fragments could have also come from other feathered dinosaurs such as velociraptor. Many theropods in the same families will lay identical eggs.

These make great materia or great specimens for a collection.

Late Cretaceous, Jiangxi Province, China.
