Dinosaur Discoveries

190 Million Year Old Nursery Found in South Africa

Researchers in South Africa have discovered the oldest known dinosaur nesting site to date, dating to 190 million years ago. The findings include multiple nests, eggs, and hatchlings belonging to the Massospondylus, an herbivorous dinosaur with a small head and long neck. 10 nests have been found so far, and scientists predict there are many more to be unearthed.

Read more about the discovery and the condition of the nests and eggs on the Huffington Post.
