Possible Tyrannosaurid nesting behaviour
Is there any way to determine the possible nesting behaviour of
Tyrannosaurids like Tyrannosaurus? Have we found any evidence of their eggs
(I have heard there has been fragmentary and ambigious finds on
Tyrannosaurid eggs, namely from one eposide of Discovery's Ultimate T.rex
where one paleontologist holds up two rather large but badly crushed
dinosaur eggs from the late KT with supposed Tyrannosaurus fossils within.).
In that case, is it possible to determine their rough nesting behaviour? If
we find less eggs in a nest, lets say two to twelve, there is a good bet
that the animal might have shown some care for the young? Or prehaps if we
do find a large clutch of eggs, the animal might have relied on numbers,
instead of maternial care for reproduction?
