‘Exquisitely preserved’ embryo found inside fossilised dinosaur egg

A 72 to 66-million-year-old embryo found inside a fossilised dinosaur egg sheds new light on the link between the behaviour of modern birds and dinosaurs. The embryo, dubbed  Baby Yingliang, suggests that these dinosaurs developed bird-like postures close to hatching.  It was discovered in the Late Cretaceous rocks of Guanzhou in southern China and belongs to a toothless theropod dinosaur, or oviraptorosaur.
