Oviraptor cast skull

Description: An Oviraptor is a remarkably bird-like dinosaur that is well represented in the Late Cretaceous rocks of Mongolia and Northern China. This creature had a cranial crest (much like that of a modern day cassowary) and a powerful toothless beak. These small theropods only grew to a length of 6 feet and probably were able to hunt insects and other small animals as well as using their beaks to crack open dinosaur eggs.
