Berlin| A malfunction with the heating system of the Museum für Naturkunde (or Museum of Natural History) had some unforeseen consequences, as a Gasosaurus egg dating from the Jurassic period ended up hatching, giving birth to the first dinosaur to see the daylight in more than 100 million years.

The egg which was believed to be petrified was preserved in a small storage room situated right next to the boiler room. When the system started overheating a few weeks ago, it seems to have surprisingly initiated the incubation process, leading the egg to hatch.

«This is an incredible opportunity for science» explains Gunther Warburg, paleobiologist at the museum. «The Gasosaurus is classified as a carnivorous tetanuran dinosaur of the therapod family originating from China. It remained a mystery because all we had to study upon were a few remains. But now we have a live one! I feel like I’m in Jurassic Park the movie! » explains the specialist, visibly enthusiast.

The specimen has already been transfered to the Berlin Zoo, where it can be studied in a secure environment. A few facts have already been made public concerning the creature, including it’s size and weight, allegedly 41 centimeters tall with a weight of 11 kilograms.

      This is actually not the first time a dinosaur has been hatched… There are in fact quite a few hatcheries off the Ivory Coast

      Actually dinosaurs are being born everyday, they are called BIRDS!!!

      When our guests arrived we gave them a tour of the facilty. Unfortunately, shortly after their arrival our power went out due to a violent storm. (It was later deduced this was not the storm but infact foul-play.) This caused all of our security systems to go down. All of our cloned dinosaurs conformed to their insticts and escaped. Many people died that day, but it was all covered up by the government.

    no do-do it says heating system.
    temperature must be ‘maintained’, not just lowered.

    if we use a (-) dash after between “20″ and “million”, that’s when we use YEAR, not years. e.g, “20-million year” vs “20 million years”.

    Ha, they just want to beat us with only 5 million years. I found the 195 mya Lufengosaurus embryo from Lufeng, Yunnan, China back in 2003. Our Nature cover paper was published on April 11, 2013. Please check it up. Organic remains were found in these embryonic bones.

    Depends on what? condition the specimen was in. where? The specimen was found such as in the Artic. And If the specimen was ever taken out of it’s Icy grave when transported to the Berlin Museum. Dinosaur fossils are found all over the world all in different condition. If they are found in the Artic or Antarctic where the temperatures are well below 0 than it may be possible to find dinosaur fossil’s with some or all tissue still attached to the bone. This would carry the dinosaur DNA which could be used for study..

  35. Dr. J. Hammond on March 11, 2014 at 8:16 pm said:

    I’ll have everyone on here know that dinosaurs do exist. Back in 1993 I was the founder and CEO of a bioengineering company called InGen. Our laboratory was on Isla Nublar, a tropical island near Costa Rica. We were actually able to replicate and clone dinosaur DNA and in our first trial we were able to successfully clone a velociraptor. However, for those of you who know anything about herpetology; reptiles grow very quickly and one of our technicians were killed. After a law suit was filed against us by our investors we had to bring in some of the worlds leading scientists to deem our facility safe – Mathematician Ian Malcolm, paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant and paleobotanist Dr. Ellie Sattler.

    When our guests arrived we gave them a tour of the facilty. Unfortunately, shortly after their arrival our power went out due to a violent storm. (It was later deduced this was not the storm but in fact foul-play.) This caused all of our security systems to go down. All of our cloned dinosaurs conformed to their instincts and escaped.

  44. Gohar on March 12, 2014 at 6:46 pm said:

    It is not only the heat which helps hatching but its place has to be changed regularly during hatching period.In Pakistan all eggs placed at store should be hatched due to un express able heat in summer.

  45. I didn’t know the best way to maintain something for 100million years was dinosaur eggs. Do away with sub cooling systems just invest in the material,that a dinosaur egg consists of.

  46. ceiswyn on March 12, 2014 at 11:34 pm said:

    A little learning is a dangerous thing…

    Those who have been speculating about deep-frozen dinosaurs may want to refresh their understanding of plate tectonics and climate history. Clue: there is no place on Earth that has been continually frozen since the Mesozoic era.

    Also, deep frozen mammoth originate from about 12,000 years ago. Compared to dinosaurs, that’s basically yesterday.

    Date:
    July 17, 2013
    Source:
    University of Adelaide
    Summary:
    A scientist in Australia has shown new evidence that dinosaurs were warm-blooded like birds and mammals, not cold-blooded like reptiles as commonly believed. The researchers argues that cold-blooded dinosaurs would not have had the required muscular power to prey on other animals and dominate over mammals as they did throughout the Mesozoic period.

    They better be careful, I once created dinosaurs using frog and dinosaur DNA that I took from a mosquito that was trapped in tree sap. I then built a park on an island where i created all kids of dinosaur life, but during a large storm and because of a disgruntled employee the dinosaurs escaped and ate people, I barely escaped with my life. This also spawned 2 sequels enabling the dinosaurs to cause lots of trouble. Its a dangerous game to play. As a good friend once said “Life will find a way”

200 Million Years Old Dinosaur Egg Hatches in Berlin Museum

Berlin| A malfunction with the heating system of the Museum für Naturkunde (or Museum of Natural History) had some unforeseen consequences, as a Gasosaurus egg dating from the Jurassic period ended up hatching, giving birth to the first dinosaur to see the daylight in more than 100 million years.

The egg which was believed to be petrified was preserved in a small storage room situated right next to the boiler room. When the system started overheating a few weeks ago, it seems to have surprisingly initiated the incubation process, leading the egg to hatch.

«This is an incredible opportunity for science» explains Gunther Warburg, paleobiologist at the museum. «The Gasosaurus is classified as a carnivorous tetanuran dinosaur of the therapod family originating from China. It remained a mystery because all we had to study upon were a few remains. But now we have a live one! I feel like I’m in Jurassic Park the movie! » explains the specialist, visibly enthusiast.

The specimen has already been transfered to the Berlin Zoo, where it can be studied in a secure environment. A few facts have already been made public concerning the creature, including it’s size and weight, allegedly 41 centimeters tall with a weight of 11 kilograms.
