Egg Laying Reptiles

Join Slate’s open thread for the week of July 13.

On this day in 1923, the first verified dinosaur eggs were discovered on an American paleontological expedition to Mongolia. Although dinosaurs were believed to lay eggs before that time, this discovery gave incontrovertible evidence that it was the case. You may use this page to discuss dinosaur eggs, bird eggs, fish eggs, phoenix eggs, dragon eggs, eggs Benedict, or to pursue areas of freewheeling, off topic discourse.
