Description: RARE AND COMPLETE TITANOSAUR EGG
Titanosauroidea
Upper Cretaceous
South America

The Titanosaurs were a group of enormous sauropods, including the Saltasaurus and Argentinosaurus, that succeeded and surpassed the diplodocids and brachiosaurids in the final age of the dinosaurs, during the late Cretaceous 90-65 million years ago. They could reach an incredible 110 tons in weight, and in the case of the poorly described Bruhathkayosaurus, possibly even double that. Remarkable not only for their size, the Titanosaurs also laid some of the most uncanny and collectible eggs in all the dinosaur kingdom. With a perfectly regular spherical appearance, the finely-textured surface bears a muted mottled brown-gray patination and it looks for all the world like an ancient stone missile. This is a good large example, 7 1/4 inches in diameter.
