Graciliceratops

Graciliceratops, meaning “horned face”, is a genus of ceratopsian dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous Period. It was first described by paleontologist Paul Sereno in 2000 based on a partial skeleton found in Mongolia. The only known species is G. mongoliensis.

Graciliceratops was a herbivore with a parrot-like beak. It fed primarily on ferns, cycads and conifers. It would have used its sharp beak to bite off leaves or needles from trees and other plants.
