Protoceratops
The first discoveries of dinosaur eggs in the Gobi Desert were by Roy Chapman Andrews of the American Museum of Natural History and revealed that dinosaurs did indeed lay eggs. Some of these eggs were attributed to the Protoceratops.

In the 1980s, the discoveries of John Horner, from the Museum of the Rockies in Montana, showed the behavior of parental care in dinosaurs with his hatchling and nestling sized Maiasaura specimens.

During the 1990s, much attention was brought to the subject of egg embryos and hatchlings with worldwide discoveries, especially in China, Argentina, France, and Spain.
