Here we have an anterior (front on, in this case) view of the GIN 100/42 specimen, Citipati sp., the most famous oviraptorid.

No worries. It still needs work, and most of the left side is mucked up, so it will be changed in the near future.

I had no idea their binocular vision was so poor.

Oh, yes. The orbits face almost completely sideways. The eye projects somewhat beyond the orbital rim, but this still gives no clue to the true ocular overlap. The animal may be like some birds and have the eye set out far enough to give it 360-degree vision, but with limited overlap (as in many birds, or rabbits).

Still, I find its lack of binocular vision to mean that it obviously wasnt a hunting animal. Maybe it foraged etc, or browsed, but I cant imagine a predator having eyes like that.

These were likely non-predacious foragers, even if they ate eggs or clams or whatnot.
