Dinosaur Egg Detectives Cracking the Case

So far, he has found embryonic bones of two of "Baby Louie's" siblings that were entombed inside other eggs in the block. There may still be others yet to be discovered. Apparently, the hatchling "Baby Louie" emerged from its egg into a hostile environment that preserved the clutch of fully developed embryos at that moment in time.
