Dinosaur Eggs, Nests and Babies
About 65 million years ago in what is now Henan Province ,China, a dinosaur egg was just about to hatch.
But something went wrong.
Perhaps something scared the mother and she trampled the nest. Maybe a predator tried to steal the eggs. Scientists who’ve studied the specimen say it looks as if Baby Louie was stepped on and crushed.
Some scientists think Baby Louie died while hatching. Others believed it died while still in the egg.
Soon after Baby Louie died, floodwaters carrying silt and sand covered the egg-filled nest. Baby Louie fossilized with its bones surprisingly intact.
In addition to Baby Louie, children will enjoy pretend play in a climb-in dinosaur nest and children and adults alike can become dinos with dinosaur costumes.
