EDIT(03/08/13): Forgot item drops.
This model's a concept for the Fossil / Archaeology Mod by Flammarilva. You can view his thread here: [link]
Hello again, my fellow Minecrafters. How are you all doing? Here, I bring you the winner of my recent poll (not counting 'Other'), Oviraptor!
Oviraptor here functions like its stereotypical depiction; an egg thief. It scans the blocky landscape for another dinosaur species's egg (chicken eggs included), then snatches it, devouring it soon afterwards. Aside from this cliche display, it also has behavior like that of its more recent depictions as a caring parent. If it lays an egg, it will stick by it until the young chick hatches. Get too close, and you'll meet the ends of its sharp beak. CRA-SNAP!
Aside from eggs, Oviraptor will also eat most plant and meat items. They're not too picky. They tend to get into squabbles primarily with Velociraptor, the two groups lashing it out until one side turns tail and flees. Whoever has the higher numbers normally reigns victorious.

Sorry if this has been answered already or anything, I recently started playing the modpack "Attack of the B Team" and the fossil mod is in it, seems like an older version because a few dinos are missing and things are very glitchy/crashy... Anyway my question is are these models I've seen in your gallery going to be added eventually to the mod?
i want IT!!!
Jeez make more plzzzzz Fossil and Archeologie mod will add this so fast as they can!!!
Great design, they look really good! Do you know if the arcaeology mod is up for the current version of minecraft? I've never played the mod but it looks like so much fun!
looks nice, would hunt it down.
They were egg-thieves however. It was a reference to them being egg eaters, not to their parenting styles.
it looks fabulous, great job getting oviraptors's appearance so good considering the quality limitations of minecraft.
YAY HAPPY ENDERBEAST YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The master is back!
Awesome, those should be in the FossilArcheology revival
this is awesome ^^
they look amazing ^^
These guys are really cool!
Nice, I love dinos o3o I demand a Pachycephalosaurus next! Also how do you even make these, I'm curious.
Lul never mind just saw the Pachy you did. XP
Looks awesome Drago!
Now learn Java and you're set.

Very nice work, I hope it gets added to the mod.
Nice to see a feathered dino, but Oviraptor probably didn't eat eggs. The famous fossil was actually a mother sitting on her eggs.
They did find a tooth-like structure on the palate which is found in some egg-eating snakes on an Oviraptor. Either that or a close relative, but it was used to crack the shell of an egg while it was in its mouth
Uh... Snakes swallow eggs whole; they don't use any sort of palate. Besides, sharing a single structure doesn't mean that two animals eat the same things. For example, both parrots and eagles have hooked beaks, and they have completely different diets.
Swallowing an egg whole would have no nutritional value, so there's a little knob that cracks the egg so the snake can eat the contents of the egg. And it's just an idea. No one really knows what they ate. Its just our best guess.
I did note that in the description. Wanted to include both of those depictions together for this mob's actions.
