Highly evolved from the Cretaceous age, the Emela-Ntouka is a giant, semi-aquatic Ceratopsid dinosaur. In appearance it resembles the dinosaur Udanoceratops , albeit almost twice the size and possessing a singular long ivory horn on the snout. The creature appears to be an offshoot of the clade Neoceratopsia, evolved from a similar ancestor to the extinct Neoceratopsians but not actually fitting into any particular clade. In appearance and physical characteristics it most closely resembles the Leptoceratopsidae family. However, Emela-Ntouka additionally possesses a long ivory horn on the snout and a giant size more closely affiliated with the Ceratopsoidea.
