Citipati is an oviraptorosaur theropod from Cretaceous Mongolia. It's often confused with the similar (and more famous) Oviraptor; in fact, most "Oviraptor" seen in movies and books are actually based Citipati.

In PaleoCraft, Citipati somewhat resembles a chicken, as it possesses a reddish crest an two wattles hanging from its neck. It's essentially harmless, and will flee if attacked.


Citipati is found in dry biomes, such as scrublands and deserts. If you want to construct a pen, make sure it contains sand for bathing and a few small shrubs and bushes. Given its arid environment, it does not know how to swim, and will simply sink in large bodies of water, but avoid it at all costs.


Citipati is omnivorous, and feeds on both plants and smaller animals. Be careful if you keep it near chickens; the two species may look similar, but Citipati will quite happily eat its smaller cousins.
