Abstract

A recent study just published reveals that a well-preserved nest of the largest known dinosaur eggs, called “Macroelongatoolithus” from Henan Province, contains a complete skeleton of a dinosaur new to science, Beibeilong. It’s a case that brings a stark reminder that incredible scientific findings rely not only on careful and ethical research activities among scientists across the world, but also on governments that value scientific heritage.
