  Dino egg could be world's oldest
Updated 26 February 2004, 19.02
Dino egg
Road workers in India have unearthed what could be the world's oldest dinosaur egg.

It's thought the football-sized egg might be 65 million years old. It's been sent to dino experts for tests to work out its correct age.

The egg might be that of the Rajasaurus Narmadensis - a reptile which is known to have once walked the area.

The dinosaur was named after the Narmada river, which flows through the state of Gujarat.

It's the size of a footie!

"There was work going on and one of our workers found something resembling a dinosaur egg," said the boss of the road workers.

"He came to me and I took the egg to a collector. It looks like a dinosaur egg and has been preserved."
