Welcome to Animal | Vegetable | Mineral

I never cease to be awed by the splendor of the natural world, by the forces that shape the earth, and by the diversity and ingenuity of the life that populates it.

Animal | Vegetable | Mineral is a group where those who share this fascination can discuss the Earth and animal sciences of geology, volcanology, seismology, ecology, ethology, primatology, entymology—basically all the –ologies of the natural world.

Scientists discover perfectly preserved embryo inside 66 million-year-old fossilised dinosaur egg

Scientists have discovered a rare, perfectly preserved embryo inside a fossilised dinosaur egg about to hatch from at least 66 million years ago.

The embryo, named ‘Baby Yingliang’, was found in the Late Cretaceous rocks of Ganzhou, in southern China, and belongs to a toothless theropod dinosaur, or oviraptorosaur.

Experts say it is one of the most complete dinosaur embryos ever found and helps shed a light on a key link between the behaviour of modern birds and dinosaurs.

Professor Steve Brusatte from the University of Edinburgh, part of the research team, said: “This dinosaur embryo inside its egg is one of the most beautiful fossils I have ever seen.
