A specimen of a dinosaur embryo was found in Ganzhou, southern China, and it is said to be one of the most complete dinosaur embryos ever unearthed. According to LADBible, the embryo has been named Baby Yingliang and is estimated to be between 66 – 72 million years old.
Skeleton led researchers have concluded that it was an oviraptorid – a two-legged bird type of dinosaur. The egg is 17 cm long and 8 cm wide and the skeleton itself is approximately 24 cm in length.

Baby Yingliang was first found in Shahe Industrial Park in 2000 and from there was donated to Yingliang Stone Natural History Museum, in Nan’an. But why are we only hearing about it now? The egg was gathering dust in a storeroom until 2015, when a staff member noticed bones sticking out of the shell.
