China announced the discovery of an impeccably preserved dinosaur egg that scientists estimate to be somewhere between 66 million to 72 million years old.


The embryo which is supposedly an Oviraptorosaur, was found in the city of Gangzhou in Southern China. Nicknamed ‘Baby Yingliang’, it is "the best dinosaur embryo ever found in history", according to researcher Dr. Fion Waisum Ma.


The embryo was found crouched in the “tucking” position which indicates that it was on the cusp of hatching. Professor Steve Brusatte who was part of the research team contended that the egg is "one of the most stunning dinosaur fossils" he had ever witnessed.


The embryo is currently held at the Yingliang Stone Nature History Museum in China, and is about 27 centimeters long.
