Oviraptor And Nest
Photograph - Photograph
Oviraptor is a genus of small Mongolian theropod dinosaur, who lived in the late Cretaceous period, about 75 million years ago. Its name is Latin for 'egg taker,' referring to the fact that the first fossil specimen was discovered atop a pile of what were thought to be Protoceratops eggs. In the 1990s, the discovery of nesting oviraptorids showed that the eggs in question probably belonged to Oviraptor itself, who was likely brooding its eggs when it died.
