“Some of these animals present a real test of our abilities. Take, for instance, this latest dinosaur, the Gallimimus. It’s an opportunistic omnivore that does best in groups – that alone isn’t the problem. But the speed… Gallimimus is incredibly fast, which presents special challenges for the ranger teams tasked with monitoring them.”

Gallimimus is an extinct genus of ornithomimid theropod dinosaur that lived in Mongolia during the Late Cretaceous period around 70 million years ago. It was a speedy theropod, the largest of its type. They were called chicken mimics because they probably moved like modern flightless birds. Unlike other theropods, Gallimimus had no teeth. In fact, it had a very small head. This was probably one of the fastest dinosaurs, with speed like an ostrich, it could probably run up to 30 miles per hour.
With its small, toothless head, it is believed that Gallimimus probably had a diet of insects, small animals, eggs, and maybe even some plants. They had a much longer neck than any other theropod dinosaur.
