Gobiraptor was an oviraptorid dinosaur, and its fossil remains were discovered from the region of Mongolia in the year 2008. They are known for their thickened jaws, which they used to feed on hard materials like seeds or eggs. They followed an omnivorous diet. Researchers claim that they were rather small in size, like most other oviraptorids. This particular species dates back to the Maastrichtian period, which was almost 72.1-66 million years ago. Like all other dinosaurs, Gobiraptors, too, reproduced by laying eggs. After the hatching of the eggs occurred, new juveniles were born.
There is no specific way to pronounce this particular word.
This particular genus has been classified as an oviraptorid dinosaur.
Researchers indicate that this species of dinosaurs roamed the planet during the Maastrichtian period.
Not much is known regarding when this particular species of dinosaurs from Mongolia became Extinct. However, in general, almost all species of dinosaurs went extinct as many as 65 million years ago.
Archaeological evidence suggests that Gobiraptor inhabited a mesic region in Mongolia. A mesic habitat is described as a region that has moderate moisture. They may have also roamed in other areas of Asia like southern China.
Gobirapator lived in the Nemegt Formation of Mongolia. Some of its fossils were recovered from the same region as well.
Studies indicate this particular species of oviraptorid dinosaur from Mongolia coexisted with other oviraptorids.
Not much is known about the lifespan of this species of dinosaurs.
Like all other species of dinosaurs, Gobiraptor, too, reproduced by laying eggs.
Gobiraptor was a feathered bird-like dinosaur. The exact body length or height of this particular dinosaur is not yet known. Since most other oviraptorid dinosaurs were small in size, it can be safely assumed that Gobiraptors had a similar body size. A unique physical characteristic of Gobiraptor is their thickened jaw. It is unknown if they were slimy or had strong teeth.
The fossils that have been uncovered consist of a partial skull, lower jaw, pelvis, and thighbones, among a few other parts. Therefore the number of bones possessed by this particular species has not been determined yet. The specimens were discovered in the year 2008 from the Omnogovi Province of Mongolia. Subsequently, in 2019, the type species of this particular genus was named Gobiraptor minutus.
Not much is known about how this particular species of dinosaurs from Asia communicated with each other. In general, dinosaurs largely communicated with each other by emitting a variety of sounds as well as by display of various body movements.
The exact length or body size of this new species is not yet known. Like most other oviraptorids, they too might have been small in size.
The exact speed attained by this particular genus of dinosaurs is not known.
The weight of this particular genus of dinosaur hasn't yet been estimated.
There is no sex-specific names for this genus of dinosaurs. A male Gobiraptor was simply called a male dinosaur, and a female Gobiraptor was called a female dinosaur.
Baby dinosaurs are called hatchlings or juveniles.
The temperament of this particular species has not yet been determined. They largely followed an omnivorous diet. Their thickened jaws indicate that they largely fed on seeds, eggs, and bivalves.
The new species (Gobiraptor minutus) was named in the year 2019 by Dr. Sungjin Lee, Anusuya Chinsamy, Yuong-Nam Lee, Rinchen Barsbold, Lü Junchang, and Khishigjav Tsogtbaatar.
Upon the discovery of the skeleton of this particular genus, a team was formed to examine it. The group consisted of paleontologists from China's Institute of Geology, Seoul National University, and the University of Cape Town.
