This egg is a replica of one of the first dinosaurs eggs ever discovered, in the Cretaceous rocks of the Gobi Desert of Mongolia. In 1923, Roy Chapman Andrews gave the name Oviraptor philoceratops (egg-taking lover of Ceratopsians) to a dinosaur they found lying on top of a nest of what they thought were Protoceratops eggs. A similar egg was subsequently found containing an almost complete skeleton of an Oviraptor embryo. It is now believed that the Oviraptors were actually nurturing their own eggs rather than stealing from the nest.
