Chinese boy discovers dinosaur eggs on river bank in China's Heyuan

A nine-year-old boy named Zhang Yangzhe discovered fossilised dinosaur eggs dating back to the late Cretaceous Period (66 million years ago) in southern China.

The video, filmed in Heyuan city in Guangdong province on July 23, shows a man from the local dinosaur museum uncovering 11 dinosaur egg fossils around the one spotted by Zhang.

According to reports, Zhang and his mum went to play at a riverside near the Dongjiang bridge and when he was about to take a picture with the bridge, he found an eggshell.

Since Zhang just visited the dinosaur museum and saw various dinosaur egg fossils, he spotted the dinosaur eggshell and informed the local museum.
