The Gallimimus (misspelled "Galimimus" in the first two games) is an ambient animal in Carnivores, Carnivores 2, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter HD.
This is a quick ostrich-like dinosaur. Gallimimus uses its fast speed to escape any danger, including the Hunter. This animal is so bird-like, Gallimimus' name means “chicken mimic”, but contrary to its name, it is not a small dinosaur. Gallimimus is actually one of the largest of its group of dinosaurs known as Ornithomimosaurs. Gallimimus uses its long, slender beak to crop plants, capture small animals such insects and lizards, and eggs by sieving them from muddy environments.
In real life, Gallimimus was considerably larger than it is in the Carnivores series. Gallimimus can be easily confused with Velociraptor or Coelophysis, which can result in wasted ammo or an unexpected death.
Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter HD[edit | edit source]

is now light green, which blends in quite well with most forested environments. If a hunter chooses to down a Gallimimus
, the reward is 3 gems.
