Ornithomimus is an ostrich dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous period of Colorado and Montana. These dinosaurs were slender, light, and probably extremely fast. While there has always been disagreement over their diet, it has been thought that they used their signature bony beak to either pluck vegetation or attack prey.[1]
