Re: New dinosaur eggs found



WOlewiler reported (8/13/98; 11:09am) this story:

I'd bet that Mayer was misquoted here.  Either that or his identification 
is most likely incorrect.

A flying reptile with an egg measuring 16 inches?  Seems unlikely.  We'll 
have to wait on this one for a reliable report.
