New Paper Trails

Not specifically about Sinornithomimus, a new paper about lever mechanics in ornithomimids was released today. The study only reinforces the fact that ornithomimids as a group continue to be popular. Sinornithomimus is not at all the same as Ornithomimus but the similarities of the two are very apparent in the majority of the skeleton, with notable differences that allow for differentiation of the genera. The dinosaur itself does not appear in a lot of books, toys, or other media however. The skeletons of the known individuals appear very much like those shown below.
