Fossil remains for this Dinosaur have been found in Asia

Sanchusaurus belongs to the ostrich-like family of ornithomimid dinosaurs. These animals were long-necked meat-eaters with small heads and mouths that were evolving into beaks. Sanchusaurus was discovered in Japan and, since only part of one bone was found, some scientists aren?t sure if it should have its own name. When this dinosaur was alive, Japan was connected to the rest of Asia and dinosaurs could move between the two areas. It is possible that this dinosaur is actually a Gallimimus, which lived in other parts of Asia at the same time.
