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 reasonably complete skeleton. It is cast in the original death pose in matrix.
Display Replicas are painted by our experts to match the original fossil’s coloration. Solid Color Replicas are unmounted casts suitable for research or reference purposes. It is painted a single color. Note: some portions of the original fossil may have been scientifically restored.
