“This is one of the best-preserved dinosaur embryos ever found in science,” says Fion Waisum Ma, lead author of the dinosaur embryo study from University of Birmingham.

Scientists have discovered a rare, perfectly preserved embryo inside a fossilized dinosaur egg about to hatch.

The embryo, named ‘Baby Yingliang’, was found in the Late Cretaceous rocks of Ganzhou, in southern China, and belongs to a toothless theropod dinosaur, or oviraptorosaur.

Experts say it is one of the most complete dinosaur embryos ever found and helps shed a light on a key link between the behavior of modern birds and dinosaurs.
