Oviraptor means "egg thief"
Oviraptors were 8 feet long and 3 feet tall at the hips.
They weighed around 60 pounds.
Oviraptors had a short deep crested head, a short deep beak
with two teeth in the mouth roof, strong arms, long legs,
curved claws on its three-fingered hands and three-toed feet,
and a heavy tail.
Oviraptors eat only eggs.
They are high in protein and very nourishing to eat.
The head of a Oviraptor is very odd, the skull is
extremely short with a deep beak.
Besides, it only had two teeth.
This mouth would have been perfect for cracking open eggs.
Oviraptors also had a tall crest, like a cassowary,
(a bird that lives in Australia).
Its eyes were on the side of its head to look out for danger.
Also its hands were short with 3 fingers, perfect for holding eggs.
The body of a Oviraptor was built like a meat-eating dinosaur.
It could ran away when it needed to and fight with its claws and beak.
Oviraptors lived in present day Mongolia.
