In the mountainous region of Guangdong Province in China, there is a town called Heyuan. It calls itself the “Home of the Dinosaurs,” and that name was well earned this week when construction workers uncovered a real treasure.

In 2004, the local museum was awarded a Guinness World Record for the largest collection of fossilized dinosaur eggs on the planet (totaling 10,008). They have found over 17,000 fossilized eggs in the town since 1996.

Construction workers repairing roads recently stumbled upon 43 fossilized dinosaur eggs, with some measuring as big as 5 inches across. Almost half of those found were completely intact.

It is unknown what type of eggs were found, but they will be sent to the museum for further research.

Most of the dinosaur eggs that the local museum has are from oviraptorid and duck-billed dinosaurs, which were known to roam the Earth 89 million years ago.
