Jurassic Nest Found in Tamilnadu

Researchers from the Salem-based Periyar University begin clusters of eggs of what they accept to be the best advancing Carnosaur and the docile, leaf-eating Sauropod at Sendurai village.

While Carnosaurs were ample bloodthirsty dinasaurs, Sauropods were long-necked, herbivores which grew to astronomic heights and sizes.

That dinosaurs already roamed the breadth was accepted from the fossils begin there on beforehand expeditions. But this is the aboriginal time that hundreds of nests anchored with hundreds of clusters of anachronistic eggs accept been unearthed in the district.

Located on the artery amid Chennai and Tiruchi, the Ariyalur and the neighbouring Perambalur geological sites bundle in the arctic plains of the Cauvery river. The abode is a actual building of age-old organisms, dating aback to 140 actor years. Ever back a British brace -- the Wines -- calm 32 boxes of "strange bean objects" in 1843, the Ariyalur arena has fatigued geologists from beyond the apple for its affluent deposit attendance and diversity.

Scientists accept begin the atomic abyssal algae or the nano fossils besides the attenuate shell-like bivalve, gastropoda, telecypoda and brachiopoda in the geological sites advance beyond 950sqkm in Ariyalur and Perambalur districts.
