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, a paleobiologist at the museum.

The Gasosaurus is classified as a carnivorous tetanuran dinosaur of the therapod family originating from China.

“This dinosaur previously remained a mystery because all we had to study were a few precarious remains” explained the scientist.

“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 transferred 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 its size and weight, allegedly 41 centimeters tall with a weight of 11 kilograms.

    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.

  2. this is some viral shit

  3. 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”.

  4. it’s in berlin!
    no do-do it says heating system.
    temperature must be ‘maintained’, not just lowered.

      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.
