Spectacular find of Pterosaur eggs sheds new light on the life of the first flying vertebrates
Hundreds of fossilized eggs of the flying dinosaur Pterosaur in China provide new evidence that these flying giants nested in groups, and that they might not have been able to fly shortly after hatching. The embryos revealed strongly developed hind limbs, but not forelimbs necessary for flying. However, some experts in the field point out that more evidence is necessary to support this spectacular claim. Analyses of more embryos that have already been excavated might provide the answers.
