Did you know?

The jaw of the oviraptor was so powerfull ot could break mollusks? The name oviraptor was given because it was thought fossil remains were found on Protoceratops eggs, later to be regognized as Oviraptor eggs? So it probably hatched its eggs?

QUESTION: Did Oviraptor really had an egg only diet?

ANSWER: No , altough it probably also could have eaten eggs, a lizard fossil has been found in its stomach.
