The smallest of the small are:
*Drinker* - around 2 ft (LJ)
*Laeallynasaurua* - same (EC?)
*Microceratops* - about 3 ft (LC?)
*Comsognathus*, of course - about 3 ft (LJ/EC, one
of the two)
T. Mike Keesey's website has a more concise list.
*Microvenator* is a juvenile, and would probably measured 4 ft as an
adult, if not more. *Sinosauropteryx* has a small body size, but the
tail gives extraordinary length, but if normally-tailed, around 3 ft
(actual is 4 ft or so).
And finally, *Leptoceratops* was not a large animal, quite small in
fact, around 4-6 ft, and he was Hell Creek born 'n' bred.
