When I was a kid, I was a huge fan of dinosaurs, I mean what kid isn’t, and well that love has only slightly waned through my current age of adult-like immaturity. There was Jurassic Park in middle school, Ricardo Delgado’s Age of Reptiles comic books through high school and Dino Crisis for Playstation in college, and all of it was awesome.. Anyway for all of you new to the paleontological fossil record outside of Jurassic Park, this is an Oviraptor (O-vih-Rap-tor). It was a small bird-like omnivorous theropod from the late Cretaceous period who’s name means “Egg Thief.” Usually depicted as having a bony head crest and its tell-tale parrot-like beak, the Oviraptor is believed to have been about 6 ft. in length and 3 ft. in height. I started this piece forever ago, and finally had an hour or so to finish it up just to get it out.
