This is what you will see if you happen to spot an Oviraptor nest site today. Because a female Oviraptor does not cover her nest in vegetation like some dinosaurs, she must keep her eggs warm by sitting on them - just as birds do. The nests are hollowed out of the ground and can contain up to 22 eggs.
