The giant eggs were discovered on December 25 in Ganzhou’s Dayu County under the construction site of a middle school, reported People’s Daily Online.

The workers were said to see a cluster of ‘oval-shaped stones’ in earth when they were breaking the ground with explosives.

A number of black debris measuring 2mm thick were seen lodged between the oval rocks.

The workers suspected they were dinosaur eggs, so they immediately held the construction and informed the police.

The police sealed the site and alerted the staff at the county museum.

According to experts from the Dayu County Museum,  the eggs were fossolised dinosaur eggs and they were from the Cretaceous period, the last period of the age of dinosaurs, reported China News.

The black debris were the fossilised egg shells.

The fossolised eggs are being kept at the museum for further studies.
