Timimus hermani is a species of theropod dinosaur that lived in the Early Cretaceous period, 122 to 109 million years ago. Theropods were the top predators and Timimus’ diet consisted of smaller dinosaurs. Timimus possessed slender thigh bones indicating that it was a lithe and agile animal.

Australia was located closer to the South Pole at the time and the continent would have experienced cold, dark winters.
