By Reuters | Grozny | 17 Apr 2012

Geologists in Russia’s volatile Chechnya region have discovered what they believe to be fossilized dinosaur eggs laid by one of the huge extinct reptiles that roamed the Earth more than 60 million years ago.

“We’ve found about 40 eggs so far, the exact number has not been established,” said Said-Emin D zhabrailov, a geologist at the Chechen State University.

“There could be many more laying under the ground.”
