This is a REAL pair of fossilized dinosaur eggs from a Hadrosaur dinosaur. Most ''duck-billed'' dinosaurs laid their eggs in nests of a dozen or more eggs. Usually, hatching and scavenging damaged the nests, obliterating any trace of the eggs that remained. Occasionally, a few eggs survived predators and the elements, and eventually became fossils. Because of their delicate nature, intact eggs are very rare in the fossil record. Dinosaur eggs that retain their original shape and eggshell are some of the most collectible fossils in the world.

This is a large Dendroolithus egg double from the Cretaceous of China. The eggs are very 3-dimensional and are nicely displayed on the natural pedestal of matrix. A large portion of the eggshell is intact on both eggs, which is extremely unusual. This dinosaur egg fossil has been cleaned with an air-abrasive machine in the EXTINCTIONS Prep Lab to showcase the fine detail of the eggshell. This is a very nice specimen of two REAL dinosaur eggs from the Cretaceous of China.

NOTE: China has now banned the export of fossils. This fossil was acquired long before the ban was put into effect.
