A team of researchers in has discovered a perfectly preserved embryo inside a fossilized dinosaur egg in Ganzhou, China.
The team believes that the embryo is 72 to 66-million-year-old and named it the “Baby YingLiang“.
Baby YingLiang is believed to be a toothless theropod dinosaur, or oviraptorosaur, lived during the Cretaceous period(145 – 66 million years ago).
The most interesting find in this discovery is giving researches a greater understanding the link between dinosaurs and birds.
The embryo was in a curled position, which resembles the behavior of birds shortly before they hatch.
