Depends on whether you regard *T. baatar* as *Tarbosaurus* rather than
*Tyrannosaurus* or not. As they appear to be, at least in the usual
consensus, sister groups, there is no objective way to decide this, and
neither genus has been defined phylogenetically.
Maybe these eggs come from a big oviraptorosaur (one of those 6-m-beasts).
