Oviraptorid Dinosaur Egg
Elongatoolithus sp., Oviraptorid
Late Cretaceous
Central Asia

At least two oviraptorid specimens have been found sitting over a nest, supporting theories that these dinosaurs exhibited birdlike nesting behavior and even perhaps birdlike features such as feathers. Here is a single Elongatoolithus egg displaying the dimpled eggshell texture of the once-viable egg.
