Prof. Steve Brusatte, who was also a member of the research team, said it was “one of the most stunning dinosaur fossils” he had ever seen, and that the embryo was about to hatch. The Yingliang Stone Nature History Museum in China has baby Yingliang that is 10.6in (27cm) long from head to tail and lies inside a 6.7 inch-long egg. The egg was uncovered in 2000, but it was hidden for ten years. Researchers turned their attention to the egg, which they assumed was holding an embryo within, only when construction work on the museum began and old fossils were being sorted through. Researchers will utilize advanced scanning techniques to obtain an image of the dinosaur’s whole skeleton because part of its body is still covered by rock.
