Safari Animal Figure - Citipati
While not as popular as its relative Oviraptor, Citipati is much more well understood by paleontologists. In fact, most artistic depictions of Oviraptor are actually based on Citipati. This ten foot long theropod dinosaur lived during the Late Cretaceous and was very likely covered in feathers.
- History: Citipati is a member of the Oviraptoridae family - “Oviraptor” means “Egg Thief”, and it was originally believed that these dinosaurs preyed upon the eggs of other animals due to their remains being discovered near nests of eggs presumed to be from other dinosaurs. The discovery of several Citipati skeletons sitting on top of nests full of eggs, however, flipped that entire notion on its head and showed that the animals were not stealing other dino eggs, but raising their own.
- Scientific Name: Citipati (named after a spirit in the Buddhist faith)
- Characteristics: This Citipati toy figure is posed in a walking stance with its head turned to the left, possibly alerted to the presence of a predator. With feathers over nearly its entire body, this figure is meticulously sculpted and hand-painted, showing off its striking bold plumage.
- Size: This Citipati toy measures 7 inches long and just over 4 ¼ inches tall. It’s about the size of a large index card.
- The Citipatis is part of the Wild Safari® Prehistoric World collection
