A group of rare incubating dinosaur fossils has been unearthed in east China's Jiangxi Province, shedding light on reproductive research related to theropod dinosaurs. The fossils, dating back about 70 million years, were found with an adult skeleton, embryos and an egg nest intact. Believably, the two-meter-long dinosaur was lying prostrate atop a clutch of embryo-bearing eggs for incubation in the same manner as modern birds.
