Oviraptorid skull

This fossilized skull was recently discovered at Ukhaa Tolgod in the Gobi Desert. It is probably from a new kind of dinosaur that hasn't been named yet. Figuring out where a new species fits on the family tree can take months or years. Once the research is complete, paleontologists will write a description of the specimen and give it a name.
