'Now I'm a bird mimic' by HodariNundu 'Now I'm a bird mimic' by HodariNundu
Un Ornithomimus exhibiendose en un lek. Este dibujo está inspirado en el descubrimiento de que Ornithomimus estaba cubierto de plumas filamentosas desde pequeño, y que los adultos desarrollaban grandes plumas mas complejas en los brazos. Ornithomimus es el primer ornitomimosaurio emplumado, y el primer dinosaurio emplumado de las Américas confirmado hasta ahora. Mas apropiado no podía ser.
(Sigues tu, T-Rex :ohnoes:)

An Ornithomimus displaying at a lek. This drawing is inspired by the discovery that Ornithomimus was covered on filamentous feathers its entire life, and that the adults developed large and more complex feathers on their arms. Ornithomimus is the first feathered ornithomimosaur, and the first feathered dinosaur known from the Americas. Which I think is quite fitting.

Did you know Pelecanimimus might actually have had adaptations for powered flight?

If it was true, ornithomimids are definitely like Cretaceous ostriches.

There's a bit of discussion in the comments, but so far no alternative explanation has been given to the large sterna, uncinate processes and heavily ossified ribs, all adaptations only seen in flying dinosaurs.

I could picture these guys doing an ostrich-like mating dance.

This was found in Alberta and has been at the Royal Tyrrell Museum for a long time. I've known about this since August 2010!
