After a farmer in northeastern China picked a fossilized flying lizard out of the ground last year and sold it to a museum, paleontologists quickly noticed a broken wing - and an egg nestled next to the animal's tail. The scientists dubbed the spectacular specimen "Mrs. T" - a contraction of "Mrs. Pterodactyl" - and are now announcing her as the first prehistoric flier to be assigned a gender.

I wouldn't conflate the egg with the mammoth. There's pretty much absolutely no way that the egg is going to have any genetic material at all.

However, it's rather neat; I never thought pterosaurs laid eggs. I guess it's just not something that crosses the mind.

Erm ...Don't all lizards and birds lay eggs ?

Forgive my ignorance
