Chinese archaeologists have found 43 fossilized dinosaur eggs at a construction site in Heyuan in China's Guangdong province.

The species of the eggs is unclear, but they have been transferred to an archaeological museum for further research, Xinhua state news agency reported late on Monday.

Nineteen of the 43 eggs discovered were found intact, the agency added.

"These eggs are large in size, and one even has a diameter of 13 centimeters (5.12 inches)," the museum's curator, Du Yanli, told Xinhua.

Heyuan has emerged as a prominent site for the prehistoric vestiges, as more than 17,000 fossilized eggs have been unearthed there since 1996.

In 2005, more than 10,000 egg fossils were found in the city, the largest discovery of its kind.
