Fossilised Dendrolithus Hadrosaur Dinosaur Egg

Item Description

C. 145 to 66 Million Years Ago – Cretaceous Period

A nice example of a fossilised Hadrosaur dinosaur egg on matrix. The name Hadrosaur translates to “big lizards”, as they ranged between 7 to 8 meters in length. They were a family of duck-billed, herbivorous dinosaurs that would have laid their eggs in nests. The eggs are found in Henan, Shandong and Guangdong Provinces, as China has extensive Mesozoic continental deposits which are called “red beds” due to their colour.

Good condition.

Egg: 63mm x 97mm approx

Matrix: 95mm
