A failure with the heating system at the Museum of Natural History (Museum fur Naturkunde) in Berlin led to some unpredicted results, when a Gasosaurus egg from the Jurassic period hatched, thus giving birth to the first dinosaur that saw sunlight in over 100 million years.
The egg, which was considered to be petrified, was kept in a tiny storage room, which was next to the boiler room. When the heating system was turned on several weeks ago, it caused the beginning of the incubation process, which resulted in hatching the egg.
Gunther Warburg, a paleobiologist at the Natural History Museum, claimed that it was a great chance for the science. The Gasosaurus is considered as a carnivorous tetanuran dinosaur from the therapod family that comes from China. However, it was a complete mystery until then, because the biologists carried out the researches on several remains. They are surprised, because they have a live dinosaur before them. The enthusiastic biologist also added that he was feeling like he was in the movie Jurassic Park.
The dinosaur has already been transported to the Zoo in Berlin, where scientists can study it thoroughly and more securely. There are several facts that were recently made public to the people about the dinosaur, such as: its weight and size. It weights 11 kilograms and is 41 centimeter tall.
