Ancient Fossilized Dinosaur Eggs With Gigantic Claws Were Recently Found in Mongolia

Yoshitsugu Kobayashi of the University of Hokkaido discovered 17 Therizinosaur eggs in the desert. Because there were no embryos in its inside, it is probable that the eggs had already hatched. In the south-east of Mongolia, Kobayashi discovered the eggs close to his car. He hypothesized that the Therizinosaurs were gregarious animals, caring for their eggs and defending them from predators.

The eggs were most likely covered by sediments caused by a sandstorm or flood; otherwise, the eggs would have been consumed by scavengers. These dinosaurs’ fossils were discovered in 1948, and after more than two decades of research, experts established that Therizinosaurs are the Teropodes with the largest claws in history.

The massive claws would have been particularly effective against bug predators, making for an epic conflict of titans… During a road repair in China, fossilized dinosaur eggs were discovered.
