At first glance, Gallimimus might look like a big ostrich with claws and a tail. These Cretaceous dinosaurs do share some similarities with their modern day cousins. Gallimimus can run at up to speeds of 30 mph but mostly they like to hang out in flocks and dine on the soft vegetation throughout Gallimimus Valley.
