Remains of discarded eggshells are common fossils found by nests

Some dinosaurs laid about 20 eggs and carefully arranged them in a circle inside the nest. Female sauropods may have laid up to 40 eggs. It is likely that dinosaurs laid eggs once a year, so a single female dinosaur probably hatched hundreds of babies in her Lifetime. Experts think that between 50—90 percent of eggs survived to hatching.
