Description:

Gallimimus, the "chicken mimic," is similar in many ways to modern flightless birds like the ostrich. It has a light build, able to run quite fast on thin but powerful hind legs, and has a powerful, toothless beak.

Gallimimus is an omnivore, willing to eat anything, from plants and insects to smaller reptiles and mammals. Lacking any sort of teeth, its diet is restricted to things it can swallow whole. Gallimimus will often be seen zipping around their exhibits in pursuit of small prey, stopping on occasion to munch on more easily caught things like plants. Although Gallimimus stands around 10 feet tall, its long flexible neck and flat-shaped beak allow it to bend down and root small creatures out of the muck on the edges of ponds and lakes.

Every aspect of Gallimimus is designed for speed. With a combination of light, hollow bones (like those in modern birds), long hind legs, and a stout tail for counterbalance, Gallimimus can reach speeds just over 40 miles per hour. That's more than 10 times the speed at which humans usually walk.

Originally found in what is now Mongolia, Gallimimus enjoys a variety of terrain. Marshy areas adjacent to more wide-open environments hold a lot of the small prey they prefer but still allow them room to run. Although fragile in comparison to many of the stouter dinosaurs, Gallimimus has little to fear from bigger predators. The placement of their large eyes allows them to see everything around them at once, and their speed provides the means to escape should they spot trouble .
