Description

Gallimimus is a genus of theropod from the ornithomimidae family. Although its name translates to ‘chicken mimic’, Gallimimus is the biggest of the ornithomimid dinosaurs, at around 450kg and 4m in length – the name refers to its neck vertebrae, which are similar to those of chickens. Fast, agile, intelligent and with excellent vision. Gallimimus is well adapted to evading predators and catching its own prey.

Discovery

This genus was discovered in the Gobi Desert in 1964 by Polish paleobiologist Zofia Kielan-Jaworowska when she excavated a partial skeleton in the sands of the Nemegt Basin. Further exploration of the area in the next few years unearthed more Gallimimus bones, giving researchers a more rounded understanding of the genus.

Paleoecology

The remains of Gallimimus have been found across Mongolia, with fossils dating the genus to the Late Cretaceous period, approximately 70m years ago. It lived alongside a wide variety of dinosaurs near rivers, lakes and streams, feeding on ground-level plants and shrubs.
