An Ancient Egg found outsite Geelong

In the Brisbane Ranges National Park,a secrecy about dinosaurs' survival in Geelong. Near Steiglitz Rd, an egg of pre-historic Dinosaur which is estimated to be 25 million years old was discovered.

Geelong subterranean historian Alan said, he had contacted the Melbourne Museum, who confirmed the history of the egg.He also said,"There's been no evidence of dinosaurs it that area before".

A study earlier this year conducted by a group of paleontologists claimed the feared Tyrannosaurus rex may have roamed the Otways coast.

Alan said his find could re-write the history books in Geelong and the surrounding region if the egg was proven to be the real deal.

"It could change the whole Geelong region, that's how significant it is," he said.
Alan estimated the egg could be worth upwards of $50,000 depending on its significance to the region.

In the 1970s and 1980s,a number of dinosaur fossils were found in the Otways but Alan's find is one of the first in Geelong for years.
