8 June 2017 – New Baby Oviraptor Dinosaur Fossils Found

8 June 2017 – The fossil of a baby Oviraptor dinosaur discovered in China more than 25 years ago has formally been identified as a new species of feathered dinosaur. The hatchling oviraptor fossil, dubbed Baby Louie, was found within a nest of dinosaur eggs. Palaeontologists have called it Beibeilong sinensis, which translates to “Chinese baby dragon”. They say it is the first known specimen of a gigantic bird-like dinosaur belonging to the group known as oviraptorosaurs.
