GeoJeopardy! Fridays

Time for GeoJeopardy! Fridays, because my third PhD exam is today. Can't wait!

- Dinosaurs -

In 2006 a fossilized one of these containing 22 broken eggs sold at auction for $420,000


In 2001 Chinese scientists said a group of these made by dinosaurs included one 1 1/2 yards long

No one knows the purpose, but like modern birds, the stegosaurus has a small hole in its skull called a fenestra, from the Latin for this


We grew up calling the alleged apatosaurus this; to us it'll always be this--so there!


Known for long necks & small heads, dinosaurs like diplodocus belonged to this "lizard foot" group


All the answers as well as any other previous GeoJeopardy! questions can be found over at my website by clicking the link.
