Pelecanimimus polydon was a primitive ornithomimosaur from the Early Cretaceous period in Spain. Named for its throat pouch, a cast of which was preserved in the original fossil, this species had long, narrow jaws and small teeth, long legs, and other adaptations in addition to the pouch that suggest it was similar to today's herons - a wader, and a piscivore. The crest on its head is also soft tissue or possibly keratin, rather than bone.
