Dinosaurs we would Like #17 - Pelecanimimus

Pelecanimimus

Bio:

Pelecanimimus is peculiar ornithomimosaur that has started to spring up in its fair share of games, toys, and media. It’s not very large compared to members of its family at 2.5 meters (8 feet) long and 55 pounds, but it does have its fair share of fascinating traits. What is unique about it is it’s strange skull that was very narrow and long, and packed with teeth. It also possessed a small fin-like crest on the back of its head, and it would’ve probably been brightly colored. It’s namesake, the modern pelican, is fitting because Pelecanimimus’s remains were found to have a throat pouch that would’ve served a similar purpose in scooping small fish. It lived in a very wet, delta environment alongside the famous Iguanodon and Concavenator in early Cretaceous Spain, and would’ve been a omnivorous fish eater. Fleet footed Pelecanimimus’s would’ve been a common sight running the in’s and out’s of the waterways, quarreling noisily with pterosaurs and crocodiles.

Interesting facts:

Summary
  • Pelecanimimus is one of only two known ornithomimids that had teeth. The other is Harpymimus. The rest, like Gallimimus, were completely toothless.
  • The La Huérguina formation where it was found has delivered fossils of unprecedented preservation. Muscle, skin, feathers, and many other types of soft tissue seem to preserve incredibly well in the prehistoric silt, to such a degree even some dinosaur colors have been able to be determined.
  • It seems that Pelecanimimus may have had the correct muscle groups and weight distribution to glide a short distance; assuming this species was feathered.
  • It’s name means “Pelican Mimic.”

Reminds me of Proceratomimus by aesthetics alone. Would be an interesting battle between the two. Of course Ludia would slap on the Ornith animations and probably give it some Proceratomimus kit.

Having 2 Gens would be pretty nice actually. Good idea!
