Nanosaurus (“small or dwarf lizard”) or Nanosaurus agilis is the name given to a genus of neornithischian dinosaur that lived about 155 to 148 million years ago, during the Late Jurassic-age.

It was a bipedal dinosaur with short forelimbs and long hind-limbs with large processes for muscle attachments. The hands were short and broad with short fingers. The head was small. It had small leaf-shaped cheek teeth (triangular and with small ridges and denticles lining the front and back edges), and premaxillary teeth with less ornamentation.
