Movie Monday

The Gallimimus doesn't have a whole lot of film credit to its name. The one scene anyone can recall to mind is from Jurassic Park ( They don't feature heavily in documentaries, however, and so movie Monday is fairly sparse. There's also this slowed down animation of the running gait which is good to watch if you're into studying running speeds (

Unfortunately, there isn't much known about the diet in the form of concrete evidence. I assume that someday there will be and then our friend the Gallimimus will start making it into more documentaries. There aren't too many documentaries discussing running gaits and those that do exist feature trackway evidence or discuss animals like T. Rex. That's another way Gallimimus could make it into documentaries, if people began to find more trackways. Until either vast amounts of stomach contents or highly visible and clear trackways come into the scientific light, we'll just have to make do with a lack of dinosaur documentaries featuring Gallimimus.
