Geologists say they have found hundreds of dinosaur egg clusters

Geologists in southern India say they have found hundreds of dinosaur egg clusters which could be about 65 million years old.

Are those really dinosour's egg clusters? Maybe they're true maybe something else.

It was a chance find discovered when a team of scientists were locating a place to excavate an ancient riverbed in the state of Tamil Nadu.

As they dug deeper they saw layers of what looked like fossilised eggs.

The photos and samples were then sent to various universities who confirmed that they were dinosaur eggs.

Each egg is the size of a football - about 13 to 23cm in diameter, lying buried in sandy nests.
The leader of the team, MU Ramkumar, told the BBC the finding is significant and could help to unravel the mystery about the extinction of dinosaurs.


"The important finding is that these eggs have been found in different layers that means the dinosaurs came to the place over and over year after year," he said.
