Ceratopsian Babies

Palaeontologists have yet to find the fossilized eggs of Triceratops or any other ceratopsian (horned) dinosaur. Elongated dinosaur eggs discovered in the 1920s were originally, although incorrectly, attributed to Protoceratops, an Asian cousin of Triceratops. More recently, palaeontologists have discovered the eggs' true owners - carnivorous dinosaurs known as oviraptors. Although no ceratopsian eggs have been identified, fossilized groups of baby Protoceratops uncovered in the Mongolian desert offer important clues about the reproductive and social behaviour of ceratopsian dinosaurs.
