    In this undated photo released by Project Exploration, Prof. Paul Sereno holds a plaque cast of two juvenile skeletons of the ostrich-mimic dinosaur sinornithomimus. In their rib cages are stomach stones and the carbonized remains of the last plants they consumed. The dinosaurs died when they were a little over one year in age.

    In this undated photo released by Project Exploration, the skull of an ostrich, left, is compared with a skull of the 90-million-year-old 'bird mimic' dinosaur sinornithomimus found in Inner Mongolia in China. Chinese and American scientists who found 25 fossils of ostrich-like sinornithomimus in China's Gobi Desert say they shed new light on dinosaur social behavior.
