Ornithomimus

About Ornithomimus

Ornithomimus would have looked much like a modern day ostrich, which is why it was named Ornithomimus, which means "Bird Mimic" or "Bird Copier." Ornithomimus had bird-like feet and was bipedal, meaning that it walked on two legs. Its arms ended with long, slender fingers. Ornithomimus had a large brain and a toothless beak. It is believed that this dinosaur probably was an omnivore, meaning that it ate just about anything that it could find, both plants, like seeds and berries, as well as animals, like grubs, insects and worms.
