Avimimus



dinosaur picture Avimimus


Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Saurischia
  Suborder Theropoda
  (unranked) Coelurosauria
  Parvorder Oviraptorosauria
  Family Avimimidae
  Genus Avimimus
Avimimus was an omnivorous dinosaur that lived in Mongolia during the late Cretaceous period, about 70 million years ago.

Avimimus was about 5 feet (1.5 meters) long. Although it had a relatively small head (compared to its body), it does seem to have had a relatively large brain and eyes. It was equipped with a serated beak, and this is usually though to suggest that the animal was a herbivore (eating only plants) or omnivore (eating both plants and meat), although there is an alternative hypothesis that it was an insectivore (specialized in eating insects).

The bones of the animal's hand were fused together like in modern birds, and most paleontologists believe that Avimimus was covered in feathers (there are indications of the attachment points for feathers on arms). It has been suggested that perhaps Avimimus might have been capable of weak flight, but many, perhaps even most, paleontologists think that the Avimimus probably could not fly, but instead was specialized in running - evidence for this is provided by the bones of its legs, which seem to be those of a running animal.
