Struthiomimus

About Struthiomimus

Struthiomimus 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, long slender fingers, and were bipedal, meaning they walked on only two legs. The name Struthiomimus actually means "Ostrich Mimic," or ostrich copycat. This dinosaur was actually the first Ornithomimosaur to be discovered. Like other members of this group, it is believed that Struthiomimus probably ate bugs, seeds, berries, and just about anything else it could find.
