"You should hear a four year old try to say "Archaeornithomimus"."
Claire Dearing talking to Owen Grady about the pronunciation of the Archaeornithomimus(src)

Archaeornithomimus is a genus of theropod dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous of China, 70 million years ago. It is related to the more famous Gallimimus, Struthiomimus, and Ornithomimus, lived in the same manner, possibly living in flocks, eating everything from small mammals, to plants and fruit, eggs, to insects, and even hatchlings of other Asian dinosaurs. However, they were also the potential prey for the larger Tyrannosaurids, such as Tarbosaurus.
