Fossil remains that were discovered in Mongolia belonged to the Rinchenia. These small Theropods lived in a terrestrial habitat and were omnivorous in nature. Fossil reconstructions have revealed that they balanced a highly developed skull incorporating many bones on a rather fragile skeletal system.
The term 'Rinchenia' is pronounced as 'Rin-chen-ee-ah'.
This dinosaur was a small Theropod belonging to the family Oviraptoridae and the genus Rinchenia.
This dinosaur species lived during the late Cretaceous period.
The exact time when this dinosaur species expired is unknown.
Fossil remains of this creature were discovered in Mongolia, China.
These dinosaurs probably inhabited forests and grasslands accompanied by minor water bodies.
It is unknown whether this dinosaur species went around in packs or was solitary in nature.
The lifespan of this dinosaur is yet to be estimated.
Being oviparous in nature, these dinosaurs reproduced by laying eggs.
A single fossil representation of this dinosaur suggests that its features resembled that of other oviraptorids. This specimen had a small but complete skull with distinct features. Fossils of this dinosaur comprised a complete skull and lower jaw, partial forelimbs and shoulder girdle, a partial vertebral column, partial hind limbs and pelvis, and a furcular. Many of its features are unknown due to a lack of sufficient evidence. It is also unknown if this was a rare species.
The exact number of bones that this dinosaur had still remains unquantified.
Although the communication pattern of this dinosaur is yet to be uncovered, it can be assumed that it interacted through visual cues.
The average length of an adult Rinchenia was 5-8 ft (1.5-2.5 m).
It can be assumed that like most other Theropods, these dinosaurs were fast creatures and agile in their movement.
The weight of a Rinchenia is yet to be discovered.
Male and female counterparts of this dinosaur can simply be referred to as male or female.
Like all dinosaurs, Rinchenia's babies, who hatched out of eggs, can be referred to as hatchlings.
These dinosaurs were aggressive and quite predatory considering their omnivorous diet. Hence, it can be assumed they had strong teeth. However, it is not known how deadly they were.
This dinosaur was rendered its name by Rinchen Barsbold in 1997.
