Gallimimus

About Gallimimus

Gallimimus was an Ornithomimosaur, or ostrich-like dinosaur. The Ornithomimosaurs, which came in a variety of species, were all very similar to one another. They typically had toothless beaks, longer slender fingers, and were bipedal, meaning they walked on only two legs. Gallimimus' name, which means "Chicken Mimic," is misleading. Gallimimus was not a small chicken-like dinosaur. It was actually one of the largest of its type of dinosaurs discovered. Gallimimus had a small head, well suited for digging in the mud to look for insects and grubs. It is likely that this bird-like dinosaur also ate seeds and just about anything it could find.
