The Amniote Egg A necessary part of the invasion of dry-land environments by the early reptiles was the development of an egg that could be laid out of water without drying up and that could "breathe" air rather than water.

This egg, developed by the first reptiles, was the amniote egg, so named because it contains a membrane called the amnion. Start studying Earth Science Test $ Pmoney.

Memoirs of Museum Victoria 17– Cretaceous marine amniote fossils have been documented from Australia for more than years, however, their global significance has only come to the fore in the last decade.

This recognition is a product of accelerated Cited by: 8. The amniotic egg allows the embryo to fully develop into a terrestrial hatchling and skip the aquatic larval stage. The materials needed to make these eggs are resource intensive, so amniotes generally lay fewer eggs than fish or amphibians (Benton,p.

Dobie. 2. Introduction. The origin of the amniotic egg is one of the key adaptations underpinning vertebrate terrestrialization. Extant amniote eggs vary considerably in shape and size [].In non-avian amniotes, two extremes are the almost spherical eggs of marine turtles and the highly elongate eggs of some snakes [].Both types are ellipsoidal, i.e.

symmetrical about Cited by: The reptiles (including dinosaurs and birds) are distinguished from amphibians by their terrestrially adapted egg, which is supported by four extraembryonic membranes: the yolk sac, the amnion, the chorion, and the allantois (Figure ).The chorion and amnion develop from folds in the body wall, and the yolk sac and allantois are extensions of the midgut and hindgut respectively.

Little is known regarding nonavian dinosaur embryology. Embryological period relates to myriad aspects of development, life history, and evolution. In reptiles incubation is slow, whereas in birds it is remarkably rapid. Because birds are living dinosaurs, rapid incubation has been assumed for all dinosaurs.

We discovered daily forming growth lines in teeth of Cited by:. The amniotic egg is the key characteristic of amniotes.
