specimen of Oviraptor was found "entangled" with a Protoceratops specimen; am
I mistaken? Was that a different dinosaur? If not, what is the explanation

Oviraptor is still Oviraptor, (actually a genus with at least 2 described
species) and always will be despite the new revelations about it's eggs.

objects like eggs, or clams? Another closely related animal is called
At the risk of rehashing the discussion of a couple weeks ago, what I want to
know is this: What were all those Protoceratops doing in and among the
Oviraptors Nesting colony??? Seriously?
Finally, It was a Velociraptor found entangled with a Protoceratops,
in a 1971 Polish/Mongolian expedition in the Gobi Desert. Pretty dramatic
and conclusive evidence of that Predetor/Prey relationship.
