Oviraptorosaurs are a taxon of theropod dinosaurs that appeared in the early Cretaceous time and have survived until the end of the Mesozoic Era.

Physical TraitsEdit

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.

The third episode of Prehistoric Park featured Incisivosaurus, a primitive species of oviraptorid. It was depicted as a flightless but feathered dinosaur that used its feathers to court females of its species and chase away rival males. It is also depicted as a vegetarian.


There are rumors that Protarchaeopteryx and Incisivosaurus are one and the same. But currently, no proof has been found.
