Here is my drawing of a Gallimimus, which I think were the same ostrich-like dinos shown in the movie Jurrasic Park. Remember that cool scene where the big T-Rex shows up out of nowhere and picks one of them off? Anyhow, I read somewhere (ZooBooks) that "gal-uh-MIME-us" means "fowl mimic". Like many birds today, it had hollow bones which seems kinda weird for an animal so big. It was also thought to be an omnivore, feeding on many species of plants and eating small animals also.
