A new scanning technique has the potential to provide a much better look at dinosaurs. Paleontologists say that research into dinosaur eggs will allow them to look at the evolution of dinosaurs in an entirely new way.
“We are looking at the dawn of life,” said lead researcher Phil Donoghue, a paleontologist at Bristol University in England. “Because of their tiny size and precarious preservation, embryos are the rarest of all fossils. But these fossils are the most precious of all because they contain information about the evolutionary changes that have occurred in embryos over the past 500 million years.”
