Theropod Eggs

Elongated eggs attributed to carnivorous bipedal dinosaurs known as theropods have been found in Asia, North America, and Europe. Most of these eggs are attributed to oviraptors, a specialized group of light, fast-moving theropod dinosaurs. Like ostriches, oviraptors ran on two long legs and bore sharp toothless beaks; and the resemblance to birds doesn’t stop there. Fossil evidence suggests that oviraptors share an ancestry with modern birds and, like them, carefully tended their eggs and young.
