Well, based on the brief, non-technical, paper I saw, this is
what I think is the case.
One of the eggs found with the type specimen of Oviraptor
(many years ago) was finally either x-rayed or opened, or both,
and the contents were shown to be an Oviraptor embryo, *not*
the expected Protoceratops embryo.
Now, given the non-technical nature of muy source, this could
be wrong due to confusion on the part of the author.
The peace of God be with you.
