Physical Traits

Oviraptorosaurs have evolved toothless beaks, had feathers, and their diet was highly debated (although some could be omnivores, a specimen of Oviraptor was found with a lizard in it's gullet, indicating a partial carnivorous lifestyle).

Oviraptorosaurs are also known from their eggs and nests.
