The discovery of what Chechen scientists believe to be dinosaur eggs is causing a ruckus among paleontologists. The sphere-like fossils were found on a construction site and the area has become a magnet for locals eager to look at the ‘dinos’. Workmen building a new road were blacking through a hillside near the Chechen border with Georgia when they came across what geologists described as a clutch of 60 million year old “eggs”. “We’ve found about 40 eggs so far, the exact number has not been established,” a senior geologist at the Chechen State University, Said-Emin Dzhabrailov, told Russia’s NTV channel. “There could be many more under the ground.” The “eggs” range from 25cm to one meter in diameter. They belong to herbivorous dinosaurs, claimed another scientist from the Chechen State University, Magomed Alkhazurov.
