This may be something that's been discussed to death, but I've searched
the mailing list and found nothing that really answers my questions. I just
watched the Discovery channel documentary 'Dinosaur Planet' and noticed
that once again, the Oviraptor is portrayed as a vicious predator competing
with Velociraptor. I don't really understand this view, because to me,
Oviraptors have always appeared highly convergent with parrots. Since we
don't exactly see parrots competing with eagles for food, why is it they
are viewed as predators? To illustrate my point, compare a parrot skull
with an Oviraptor skull.
looks awfully air-filled to me...wouldn't that work against being a
just a thought.
