Advertisement

A pterosaur has been found in China beautifully preserved with an egg. The egg indicates this ancient flying reptile was a female, and that realisation has allowed researchers to sex these creatures for the first time.

Dr David Unwin, a palaeobiologist at the University of Leicester, spent three months examining the find last year and has published his research in the journal Science.
