Dinosaur eggs found in India

Dinosaur egg

Dinosaur eggs thought to be 65 million years old have been found in India.

Scientists came across hundreds of the football-sized eggs in Tamil Nadu in southern India.

They think they're probably Sauropod eggs which was a leaf-eating dinosaur.

The scientist leading the team thinks that by examining these eggs they could find out why dinosaurs became extinct.

There have also been some bones found quite close to the site.
