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.

    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..

      They cannot kill the last of its kind because it is illegal, it is classed as genocide
