SCIENTISTS have discovered a new breed of dinosaur in the north of Spain.
The claims emerged after two Spanish paleontologists found a new type of dinosaur egg in Lleida.
The remarkable egg from the upper Cretaceous period, around 75 million years ago, is said to suggest the existence of an animal that linked dinosaurs and birds.
The eggs have a peculiar asymmetrical shape which look more like chicken eggs than dinosaur eggs.
The so-called ‘missing link’ between the two species has been named Sankofa pyrenaica.
