Dinosaur Eggs
This National Geographic Society (NGS) website takes users behind the scenes of their 1996 article 'The Great Dinosaur Egg Hunt'. The site contains an online egg hunt and a look at fossil researchers as they 'hatch' fossilized dinosaur eggs to reveal the embryos inside. This includes an in-depth look at 3 different dinosaur eggs that have been found, how researchers view the insides of fossilized eggs, the process of embryo modeling, and virtual reality views of hatchlings and embryos.
