The approximately 66-million-year-old Fund had the largest soft-shelled Egg that was ever found and the second largest overall, the researchers said in a Wednesday in the journal "Nature" published an article.

Chilean researchers the 28 x 18 cm, shriveled Fossil of 2011, had discovered in the Antarctic. Since then, it was stored in a Museum in Chile. The helpless scientists have dubbed the mysterious Fund is simply "the thing".

Due to the size and there's no skeleton Inside it was, was not this Thesis is not necessarily obvious. Chemical analyses confirmed the acceptance but now.

The researchers suggest that it comes from a type of reptile that has measured at least six feet – probably from a Mosasaur. This is corroborated theory of finds in the vicinity of the ice: There, researchers discovered Mosasauriern the skeletons of Baby.
