Citipati (sih-tee-pat-tee, meaning "Funeral Pyre Lord") is a medium-sized herbivorous prehistoric animal that lived in the Mongolian deserts of the Late Cretaceous period. It is a coeleurosaur theropod and the mod's only oviraptorid, and was the 50th prehistoric creature added to the mod! It grows to around 1.5 blocks tall and 3 blocks long in nine Minecraft days. Citipati are covered in a dark speckled brown coat of feathers, with tan bellies and blue feet. There is no size difference between genders, but the males have very dark heads with bright white markings. Baby Citipati are born with yellower feathers and are only 1 block long. Citipati can be fed essence of chicken to grow faster, at the cost of hunger.
Citipati, like almost all other mobs, has a mood that can drop or be raised through various means. Having a low mood means it will attack you, having a high mood will make it neutral. Right-click it with a DinoPedia to see what its mood is at.
Like most other mobs in the mod, they do not spawn naturally in the world and must be created by the player through the culture vat. As they are dinosaurs, they hatch from large eggs that need to be warmed by torches or any other light source.
The Citipati is a neutral herbivore, and will only attack the player or other mobs if they are attacked first. If their mood drops too low, though, they will become hostile to the player. When attacking Citipati will violently peck their opponent. Citipati will browse the ground looking for plants, like flowers, when they are hungry. Citipati are also diurnal, meaning they are active during the day and sleep at night.
Adult Citipati can breed and lay eggs every five minutes if there is a male and female present. The breeding probability is handled by how many individuals are nearby.
Citipati are prey to most carnivores, from Tyrannosaurus to Sarcosuchus and Megalodon to Ceratosaurus and Dilophosaurus. Even Velociraptors will attempt to attack Citipati, without much success. Baby Citipati are even more vulnerable to predation. Citipati will not hesitate to defend themselves, which means they can come out the winner (depending on the predator).
Citipati, like most prehistoric creatures, is tamed when the player is within a 6-block radius of the egg hatching. If the player misses this opportunity, it can be tamed with a whip or by feeding them. It cannot be ridden. They are controlled with a stick.
Citipati automatically eat plants off the ground when they are hungry. They will also eat from a feeder with plants in them if they can see them. Citipati can be hand-fed apples, wheat and bread, sugarcane and sugar, cakes, cookies, melons, carrots, potatoes and baked potatoes, pie, beets, chorusfruit, seeds of all kinds, and ferns.
