Current research done by paleontologists at the University of Calgary and Montana State University has led to a new understanding of how some dinosaurs cared for their eggs. 

While dinosaur eggs can be preserved in much the same way as other fossils, complete nests are more difficult to find. 

“The nests of dinosaurs are very rarely preserved — it is usually just the eggs,” said U of C paleontologist Darla Zelenitsky. “Because of that, it has been very difficult to tell how dinosaurs incubated their eggs.”
