Struthiomimus

Today’s Prehistoric Beast is the ostrich-like, bipedal dinosaur, Struthiomimus. This animal was abundant during the late Cretaceous and is assumed to have been omnivorous, eating plant material and small mammals, lizards and invertebrates. It is speculated that this animal was capable of a 30 to 50 mph sprint, making its speed its prime defense against predators of the day.
