A group of scientists found the fossil is most unusual and large found in the continent of ice in Antarctica. An egg of a dinosaur that was found in the Seymour island.
Through a study published in the journal Nature, experts from the University of Chile in collaboration with the Texas, published the most recent discoveries with regard to the egg known as “The Thing” , which is fossilized and was found in the year 2011.
In the update data, the experts argue that this finding might have belonged to a sea monster, gigantic, similar to the legend of the loch Ness.
With respect to the fossil, this is the largest finding of its kind and is the first egg to appear in the continent’s most southern and cold in the planet.
According to research, the egg would have a dates from 66 million years ago and belonged to a reptile giant marine, he had puzzled experts for more than 9 years.
By that time, the scientists had compared the finding with a soccer ball, due to its particular shape oval 27 cm long and 17 wide.
To realize the new discoveries, the researchers used special microscopes with which discussed the details of the fossil, to recognize the actual size of the giant animal that laid the egg.
After completing the study, the experts concluded that the animal would have had a size of 7 metres long, belonging to the species of reptile water mass.
In the words of Luke Lagendre, lead author of the study and expert belonging to the University of Texas at Austin “the fossil belonged to an animal the size of a dinosaur big, but it is completely different to an egg of the reptile giants, since that is more similar to the zygotes of lizards and snakes, is a relative to the truly giant of these animals.”
After not having a skeleton in its interior, the new tracks show that it was a mosasaurus who put the egg, ancient reptiles giant who lived in Antarctica and that before the continent was covered in ice dwelt at how massive this place on the planet.
For now the scientists will continue doing more research on this fossil, which has remained occupied paleontologists for more than 9 years due to the strangeness of its form, structure, formation and origin.
