Fossil Dinosaur Egg Nest
FOSSIL DINOSAUR EGG NEST
The savannahs of Central Asia at the end of the Cretaceous period teemed with dinosaur species, including the bird-like oviraptorids. Many of this family sported a full coating of feathers, and all laid eggs. This attractive group of six small raptor eggs emerges dramatically from the earthy red colored matrix, with good shell coverage, evocatively crazed with cracks, in an attractively contrasting dark gray. The largest measures approximately 1 7/8 inches wide at the base and is in a 7 x 6 1/2 inch matrix.
