Explorers find over 100 fossilized dinosaur eggs in India

More than 100 fossilized eggs of dinosaurs were found in a central India state, The Associated Press Tuesday quoted local people as saying.

Three Indian explorers claimed that they also found footprints of the dinosaurs in a remote area in Kukshi-Bagh area, some 153 kilometers southwest of Indore, a key city of Central India's Madhya Pradesh state.

"These animals used to come from far away areas to lay eggs on the sandy banks of the rivers in this area, identified scientifically as Lameta bed," said Vishal Verma, one of the three explorers.

The dinosaurs were 40-90 feet in length, Verma said, informs Xinhua.

According to Boston Globe, All the eggs were discovered from a single nesting site in Kukshi-Bagh area, some 95 miles southwest of Indore, a key city of Madhya Pradesh state.

"These animals used to come from far away areas to lay eggs on the sandy banks of the rivers in this area, identified scientifically as Lameta bed," Verma said.

One of the finders, Vishal Verma, said the eggs dated back to the Upper Cretaceous period, between 100 and 65 million years ago.

Verma characterized the eggs as coming from three types of sauropod dinosaurs, but would not get more specific, informs FOX News.
