190 million years old dinosaur fossils


Oldest dinosaur embryo fossils discovered in China
.

Science amazes me!
The fossil is not 10 million or 20 million years old, it is 190 million years old!

The study reveals how dinosaur embryos grew, developed and moved around in their eggs.

Organic collagen was discovered in bone. Paleontologists believe they will be able to recover collagen from the tissues in the future for more analyses. Finding complex proteins in a 190-million-year-old fossil gives a lot of hope for finding it in other extinct animals.

I am so excited!

    Yes that is very cool! Taslima, I don’t know if you can get PBS where you are, but the Nova program has started airing an excellent 4 part series,
    http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/earth/australia-first-years.html#australia-first-years
    The first episode aired last night and covered Earth’s formation through the Hadean and on through the Cambrian. I loved it!

    Interesting. Should this find, be posted on my blog? A rare find. Hopefully, we find more specimens like this.
