Island Stone Icon Fenestrosaurus


(pronounced fen-EST-roh-SAWR-us) Fenestrosaurus (meaning "window lizard") is an invalid name for Oviraptor. Fenestrosaurus was named by paleontologist H. Osborn in 1924. It was a theropod dinosaur with a parrot-like head, toothless beak, long fingers, and long legs.

Fenestrosaurus This nomenclature (“window lizard”) is no longer recognized by scientists because they found that it described an animal that was previously given another name which is Oviraptor. Named by Henry Fairfield Osborn in 1924.
