Re: smallest dino eggs



If we want to get pedantic about the whole issue, then the eggs of the
living Bee Hummingbird (_Mellisuga helenae_) of Cuba may hold the
all-time dino record in the teensee egg category.  ;-)

The adult bird itself weighs in at around 1.95 grams, so its diminutive
eggs are probably a spectacle to behold.
