  • Dromiceiomimus brevitertius (Parks, 1926) (type)

Dromiceiomimus was an Ornithomimosaur of the late Cretaceous, 80-65 mya. It had a large brain and large eyes, and long, slender legs.

Founded in the plains of North America, the Dromiceiomimus was the fastest dinosaur, running at speeds of up to 40-50 mph. It was an omnivore with a basic diet of insects and vegetation, and occasionally would eat small rodents or lizards.
