Prehistoric Fossilized Dinosaur Egg Hadrosaur Cretaceous Period Fossil For Sale
A rare and fascinating Prehistoric Fossil - A Fossilized Dinosaur Egg fragment of the family Hadrosauridae, dating to the Late Cretaceous Period (approximately 100 - 65 Million years before present).
The Hadrosaur is a long extinct Dinosaur that inhabited our planet approximately 100 Million years ago. At that time the Earth was markedly different to today, being formed of the Gondwanan and Laurasian Supercontinents and being largely sub-tropical in climate. The Hadrosaur was a bizarre, duck-billed beast weighing several tons that feasted on the plentiful Cretaceous vegetation. Paleontologists believe that the Hadrosaur was the most numerous Dinosaur during the Cretaceous period, with the Family growing in number and Species from the Middle Cretaceous onwards. The Hadrosaur, along with the other Dinosaurs, were completely eliminated during the cataclysmic K-T (Cretaceous-Tertiary) extinction event that occurred approximately 65.5 Million years ago.
This Egg is a fascinating symbol of this bygone era, representing the lost young of a Reptile species, which probably suffered one of the largest Mass-extinctions of any creature in history.
Diameter of egg: 6 inches.
Condition: Very good, as shown.
