The first fossilized dinosaur eggs ever found (and the biggest yet to be found) were football-shaped Hypselosaurus eggs found in France in 1869. These eggs were 1 foot (30 cm) long, 10 inches (25 cm) wide, had a volume of about half a gallon (2 liters), and may have weighed up to 15.5 pounds (7 kg). The smallest dinosaur eggs are about 1 inch across; they are from Mussaurus.
Many fossilized dinosaur eggs have been found, at over 200 sites in the USA, France, Spain, Mongolia, China, Argentina, and India. Very rarely, the eggs have preserved parts of embryos in them, which can help to match an egg with a species of dinosaur. Without an embryo, it it difficult to match an egg to a dinosaur species. The embryo in an egg sheds light on dinosaur development.
