Research scholars, archaeologists and geologists of the Periyar University in Salem, Tamil Nadu have found hundreds of fossilized dinosaur eggs at a nesting site in South India in the Cauvery basin region near Ariyalur. The shells are estimated to be 6.5 crore years old! That’s 65 million years old! Each egg is about 13 to 20 cm in diameter and they were lying in sandy nests which were 1.25 metres across.
And then if you haven’t visited our own ‘Cauvery’ site, please do so now. Sorry, no dino eggs there, but contests to be won, stories to be shared, and an important pledge to be made!
