Ornithopod Dinosaur Eggs

Spherical eggs discovered at nesting sites in Asia and North America once belonged to bipedal plant-eating dinosaurs known as ornithopods. Hadrosaurs (duckbilled dinosaurs) are probably the most widely recognized ornithopods. Eggs from China and hadrosaur hatchlings found in the U.S. and Canada offer controversial new clues about the nesting behavior of these dinosaurs and have ignited a scientific debate. Did hadrosaur parents feed and protect their helpless nestlings, as some paleontologists believe, or does new evidence suggest that precocious young duckbills looked after themselves?
