Struthiomimus was an ornithomimid (bird-like) dinosaur that lived across North America. Its name means 'ostrich mimic' from the long, developed hind legs and bipedal structure indicating a fast runner. It had large eyes, and no teeth, but with forelimbs and longer claws than other genera of its type. Large numbers of these dinosaurs lived across a vast range.
An incomplete holotype species of Struthiomimus was first retrieved in 1901, with a more complete skeleton found at Red Deer River, Alberta in 1914. Other specimens have been found in the Oldman Formation in southern Alberta, and the Lance Formation in Wyoming.
Sites where Struthiomimus have been found show a remarkable diversity in animal and plant life. There is evidence of freshwater animals indicating water bodies like rivers and lakes.
