Anserimimus ("goose mimic") is a genus of ornithomimid theropod, from the Late Cretaceous of what is now Mongolia. It was a lanky, fast-running animal, possibly an omnivore. From what fossils are known, it probably closely resembled other ornithomimids, except for its more powerful forelimbs.

It was about 3 ft in length and weighed 62 kilograms. Its only fossil was found in Mongolia but it's skull was not found. Paleontologists assume that it had less amount of teeth.
