Dromiceiomimus was first discovered and named in 1924 in Alberta, Canada. This dinosaur closely resembled the modern day Emu of Australia, which is why it was named Dromiceiomimus, which means “Emu Mimic.”
Dromiceiomimus was an Ornithomimosaur, or ostrich-like dinosaur. The Ornithomimosaurs, which came in a variety of species, were all very similar to one another. They typically had toothless beaks, long slender fingers, and were bipedal, meaning they walked on only two legs.
Dromiceiomimus’ were longer than most other Ornithomimosaurs.
