|Of all the discoveries the expeditions made, the most celebrated was of the first dinosaur eggs ever found. The eggs were originally thought to be those of protoceratops but today it is agreed that they are of the dinosaur, oviraptor. (When you see them in the Museum in New York they are on display as being those of a protoceratops.) In an effort to raise more money to continue the expeditions, Andrews auctioned off one of these eggs. It went for $5,000.00 and this caused quite a stir in China. The Chinese authorities thought that if one egg was worth $5,000.00 then what was the worth of all the skeletons and fossils that the expedition was taking out of the country? This led to greater problems for Andrews when it came time to transport his fossils out of China to the U.S. These hassles and the continuing instability of the political situation in China eventually led to the end of the expeditions after the 1930 season.
