Turtle Egg 90 Million Years Old, Larger Than Humans

A team of researchers affiliated with several institutions in china and Canada has found a giant fossilized turtle egg. The fossil is believed to be laid by a turtle size of a fully grown human. They also claimed it to be from 90 million years ago with the embryo inside. 

The fossil is identified from the Cretaceous period, as published in their paper in  Proceedings of the Royal Society B. The paper has all the information about the fossil found.

According to the researchers, it is very rare to find such an egg from the Cretaceous period with an embryo. It is not even common to find dinosaurs’ eggs from the same period as it is difficult to survive in the present because of their fragile nature.
