Egg Teeth (C/N)

Egg teeth are small, horn-like structures often found in infant birds and reptiles, and are used to pierce through the eggshell during the hatching process. They are usually lost within a few days of hatching. During the guided tour of Isla Nublar’s laboratory and nursery facilities, Dr. Henry Wu mentioned that hatchling Velociraptors lacked teeth of any kind, including egg teeth. According to him, this was unusual because most other dinosaurs were born with them.
