  Leptomeryx evansi Skeleton Panel - Fossil Replica  (BHI #126459)
Leptomeryx evansi Skeleton Panel - Fossil Replica 
Detailed Images

Leptomeryx evansi was a small hornless ruminant that resembled a miniature antelope or deer; their closest living relatives are the Tragulidae.  Unlike the Tragulidae of today, they probably lived in social groups as indicated by mass mortality deposits containing as many as 26 skeletons. They had short forelimbs with tiny four toed feet that would have enabled them to dart like rabbits in the shady undergrowth of their forested habitat. They most likely dieted on tender shoots, fruits, and insects. It was a very successful animal dominating the fossil record in some localities, and would have been a tempting snack for the forest dwelling predators of its day.

Our panel mount skeleton replica is molded from a nearly complete skeleton. It is "positioned" in a walking pose, on matrix.

This is a really interesting animal. Great for any badlands exhibit!
