This 10-page paper with over 30 color photos of fossils shares Independent Research on fossils found from March – August 2009 on private property in Glen Rose, Texas by the Dinosaur Valley State Park. Also available as a print article or come pick up a color print from Cha in the gallery!
This article describes my findings on bird fossils, some have feathers. I found and photographed these fossils myself. I cleaned, oiled and waxed them myself. The observations and interpretations are mine alone and references made are to my two previous articles, The Embryonic Development of Dinosaurs, and The Embryonic Development of Triceratops. My major point is that these Dinosaur embryos have two umbilical cords in their mouths that go back and forth to a placental mass which is more than a yolk. Also, I think that my past experience doing glass work gives me an insight towards understanding the varied appearances of the umbilical cords. And, I have found the answer to the age old question, “What came first, the chicken or the egg?” The answer is… a fertilized egg!
