Leptoceratops gracilis is a genus of herbivorous dinosaur that lived during the Cretaceous period, approximately 70 million years ago. They are classified within the family of ceratopsids, which are known for their distinctive horns and head crests.

Leptoceratops is characterized as a small to medium-sized dinosaur. Its fossil remains indicate that it had a length of around 2 - 2.5 meters and reached a height of approximately 1 meter at the hip. Its weight is estimated at around 100 to 200 kilograms.

The appearance of Leptoceratops resembled that of other ceratopsians. It had a stocky body with short but strong legs, suggesting that it was an agile runner. Its head was relatively large compared to the rest of its body, and it featured a horny beak in place of teeth. Although it lacked the large horns and bony crest found in other ceratopsians, it did have a small bony protrusion in the nasal region.

This dinosaur probably fed on low plants and shrubs, using its beak to uproot and crush vegetation. It is believed that it lived in herds and that it was an agile and fast animal, which would have allowed it to escape the largest predators of the time, such as the Tyrannosaurus rex.

Leptoceratops fossils have been found primarily in North America, particularly in the Alberta region of Canada.

Approximate Measurements of the Leptoceratops:

  • 1:35 scale - 63mm
  • 1:20 scale - 110 mm
