Leptoceratops

About Leptoceratops

Leptoceratops was discovered in North America in 1924 by Barnum Brown. Leptoceratops is a primitive horned dinosaur that has the features of the earlier dinosaurs of this type. However, he lived much later, around 68 million years ago. Scientists believe that Leptoceratops was a late-surviving primitive horned dinosaur. Leptoceratops had a small head frill, and no horns. He usually walked on all fours, but could also stand and run on two legs. Leptoceratops' front digits had the ability to grasp, and were probably used to pull branches and other food towards its mouth.
