Oviraptor was a toothless meat-eater. So, how did it eat meat? It used its sharp beak to kill insects and reptiles. Their diet consisted of hard fruits, eggs, and possibly shellfish. Its body type made it adept at moving quickly, much like an Ostrich would today, with the ability to run at up to 43 mph. Large carnivores hunted Oviraptor, such as T. Rex.
