Avimim is a genus of dinosaur that belonged to the family Avimimidae, which is part of the larger group of oviraptorosaurs.

Avimim means "bird mimic" in Latin, because it had some features that resembled modern birds, such as a beak, a short tail, and long legs.

However, Avimim was not a true bird, and it could not fly.

It was a small, fast-running dinosaur that lived in what is now Mongolia during the Late Cretaceous period, about 85 to 70 million years ago.

Avimim was about 1.5 meters long, 70 centimeters tall, and weighed about 15 kilograms.

It probably ate eggs, insects, and small animals.

Avimim was first discovered and named by Soviet paleontologist Sergey Kurzanov in 1981.

Avimim is known from several fossils, including a nearly complete skeleton.

Avimim is one of the most bird-like dinosaurs ever found, and it shows how dinosaurs evolved into birds over millions of years.

Here are some facts that you may find interesting:
  • Avimim had a large brain and keen eyesight, which may have helped it hunt and avoid predators.
    It also had a long neck and a flexible spine, which gave it agility and balance.

  • Avimim had four toes on each foot, but only three of them touched the ground.
    The fourth toe was raised and had a large claw, which may have been used for defense or display.
    Avimim also had three fingers on each hand, with small claws.

  • Avimim is one of the few dinosaurs that has been found with preserved feathers.
    The feathers were short and simple, and covered most of its body.
    They may have provided insulation, camouflage, or signaling.
