Papo - Blue Oviraptor
meaning "egg seizer" or "egg thief". Early on it was assumed that the oviraptorid were egg rustlers, however, after further scrutiny we see they were actually brooding the nests they were located near. Oviraptor was a rather small feathered oviraptorid, estimated at 5.2 ft long with a weight between 73–88 lb. It had a wide lower jaw with a skull that likely had a crest. Both upper and lower jaws were toothless and developed a horny beak, which was used during feeding along the robust morphology of the lower jaws. The arms were well-developed and elongated ending in three fingers with curved claws. Like other oviraptorids, Oviraptor had long hindlimbs that had four-toed feet, with the first toe reduced. The tail was likely not very elongated, and ended in a pygostyle that supported large feathers.
