Citipati sp

Citipati sp
An Citipati sp is striking outs with it's fierce claws.
Oviraptorids were probably not hunters, they might have used their big hands
to collect shellfish or nuts or other easy food. But if they got cornered
it's allmost obvious that they could have done great and fatal damage.

The two only teeth are clearly visible on the reconstruction, and so is the greatly varied crest on
the top of the head. Many skulls are found with smaller crests or tottally lacking crests.
This causes great confusion, because it can be the same species differed by sexual dimorphism or age
or it could be different subspecies, species or even genus.
