Ferrisaurus ("iron lizard") is a genus of leptoceratopsid ceratopsian from the Sustut Basin in the Late Cretaceous Tango Creek Formation of British Columbia, Canada. It is also the first non-avian dinosaur discovered in British Columbia. The remains, nicknamed "Buster", were discovered in 1971 and were studied by Victoria Arbour in 2006.
