What is the animal Leptoceratops known for?

Leptoceratops was a genus of small, herbivorous dinosaurs that lived in North America during the late Cretaceous Period, about 68 to 66 million years ago.

It belonged to the group of ceratopsians, which are characterized by having parrot-like beaks and frills on their heads.

Leptoceratops was one of the last and most widespread primitive members of this group.

Leptoceratops was known for its unusual teeth, which had dual wear facets and were self-sharpening.

It also had a large head, a stout body, and strong limbs.

It was about 2 meters long and weighed up to 200 kilograms.

Leptoceratops was a social animal that raised its young in burrows.

It migrated across the plains and hills of Laramidia, a landmass that existed in western North America during the Cretaceous.

It fed on low-growing plants and avoided predators such as tyrannosaurs and dromaeosaurs.

Leptoceratops was one of the last dinosaurs to go extinct at the end of the Cretaceous, along with its relatives Triceratops and Torosaurus.
