       Lesothosaurus, ("lizard from Lesotho"), was a small ornithischian dinosaur from Lesotho, South Africa.


Because this dinosaur is so ancient and unspecialized, scientists still cannot figure out where it belongs. Some think that it is a neornithischian dinosaur, or is even among the first members of Thyreophora, the armored dinosaurs. 

Another dinosaur from Early Jurassic Africa, Fabrosaurus, may also be Lesothosaurus.
