Gallimimus is a ornithomimid dinosaur from the late Cretaceous period Nemegt Formation of Mongolia.
Of these Gallimius is one of if not the biggest of the group, often credited at being six meters long but with other fossil material indicating a larger size of up to eight meters long; it possess a small head, toothless beak, large eyes, a long neck, long arms and legs, and a long tail used as a counterbalance.
Key to the survival strategy of Gallimimus, and other ornithomimids, is speed: the legs, especially the lower portions, are long and capable of covering a lot of ground with each stride.
The bones, like in all theropods, are hollow in order to reduce the overall weight of the body so that less energy is required to move and faster running speeds can be maintained.
The eyes are located on the sides of its head, meaning that it doesn't possess binocular vision: this means that Gallimimus has a very wide field of view with which it has an easier time spotting threats, but lacks a detailed depth perception.
Twenty-four Gallimimus were successfully recreated by InGen; The cloned Gallimimus move in flocks and have a color scheme that varies depending on an individual's age and gender.
Like all of InGen's cloned theropods, Gallimimus have pronated hands; because of a null allele created from the mutation and manipulation of its genes as well as the addition of frog, reptile, and bird DNA, the cloned Gallimimus lacks feathers.
The males are bright orange and have darkened patterns of red and orange from head to tail, while the females are duller in color on most of the body having a peachy color along with shades of brown. Unlike the adults, the juveniles have an almost translucent mossy green color on their bodies and a diverse number of spots over them.
Gallimimus are omnivorous and they eat almost anything they can find; they eat a variety of foods from seeds and plants to lizards, frogs and various invertebrates. Since Gallimimus do not have teeth they often swallow pebbles to aid digestion.
They're mostly peaceful animals and tolerate human presence, but males can be territorial and aggressive: with their strong legs they can deliver powerful kicks which could seriously injure or even kill a potential attacker. The females, on the other hand, are more gentle and can be approached without problems.
Gallimimus can be seen in the plains of Isla Nublar; seeing these dinosaurs moving like a flock of birds is a sight not to be missed.
