The Hell Creek Ornithomimid is an omnivorous ornithomimid theropod that will appear in Saurian. It is based on material attributed to the dubious species Struthiomimus sedens, albeit following Gregory S. Paul's classification that there is not enough significant difference from this species to make it distinguishable from Ornithomimus velox, meaning that the ornithomimid in Saurian is based on the ornithomimid from the Lance Formation and will be known as the species Ornithomimus velox until a formal analysis of ornithomimid fossils from the Hell Creek Formation is published.
In Saurian Edit
The Hell Creek Ornithomimid will be in Saurian. It is portrayed with feathers covering the majority of its body, except for some bare skin on the underneath of its' tail and the legs. Its colors include black, tan and brown on its feathers, and grey on its skin.
Behind the scenesEdit
The developers used the fossil material published in the study "A densely feathered ornithomimid (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the Upper Cretaceous Dinosaur Park Formation, Alberta, Canada" to design the ornithomimid and had access to the material before the study was published.
