Some dinosaurs put colorful, mottled and dotted eggs, showing a wide variety of blues and browns, a discovery that calls into question that this exceptional trait originated with birds, scientists said. According to Yahoo, an analysis of a dozen fossilized dinosaur egg shells from Europe, Asia and North and South America detected the presence of the same two egg pigments of colorful birds in a group of dinosaurs called eumanirraptores, among which are the carnivores, such as the velociraptors, and small dinosaurs with feathered ancestors of birds.

"We discovered that the color of the egg is not a unique feature of our modern birds, but that it evolved," says the Yale University study.
