Huge 60 million year old dinosaur eggs found
Explorers in Chechnya have accidentally discovered what they think is the largest batch of fossilized dinosaur eggs in a mountainous area south of the republic. The cache contains 40 or so eggs and is believed to date back some 60 million years. The explorers also believe they were laid by plant eating dinosaurs. The team of geographers stumbled up on the eggs as they were studying two uncharted waterfalls. Radio carbon dating tests will confirm the actual age of the specimens.
