  Genus Gallimimus
Gallimimus was a fast-running dinosaur that lived in Mongolia in the late Cretaceous period, about 75 to 70 million years ago.

Gallimimus was about 13 feet (4 meters) long, and weighed around 60 pounds (27 kilograms).

Gallimimus had a long snout ending in a beak, and its hands seem better suited to digging than to grasping. Some scientists believe that Gallimimus may have dug up other dinosaurs' eggs buried in sand, and then cracked them open with its beak. Another possibility is that it may have been an omnivore, eating small animals, insects, and perhaps some plant material, as well as eggs.

Gallimimus had hollow bones similar to modern birds. It also has a number of adaptations suggesting that it may have been a fast runner. These include long limbs, a long tibia (the shin bone) and metatarsus (the long bones of the foot), as well as short toes.

The first fossils of Gallimimus were discovered in the early 1970s, and the creature was named in 1972 by Rinchen Barsbold, Halszka Osmólska and Ewa Roniewicz.
