THE WORLD'S OLDEST EGG OF A MEAT EATING 
DINOSAUR

In late 1995, Don Shiffler and his three-year-old son David 
came to the New Mexico Museum of Natural History with an 
odd-looking, curved rock that David had found while they 
were hiking near Albuquerque. Don did not know exactly 
what that rock was, but David was sure it was part of a 
dinosaur egg. First, Museum Chief Preparator Peter Reser, 
and then I, confirmed the three-year-old-boy's discovery and 
conclusion -- David Shiffler had found part of a dinosaur 
egg. After further study by several research organizations it 
was found that this egg belonged to a Jurassic carniverous 
theropod dinosaur. You can explore this discovery online at 
the New Mexico Museum of Natural History's web site.
