Megacerops, previously known as Brontotherium and Brontops, is an extinct genus of the prehistoric odd-toed ungulate (hoofed mammal) family Brontotheriidae (or Brontotheres), an extinct group of rhinoceros-like browsers related to horses. It was endemic to North America during the Late Eocene epoch (38–33.9 mya), existing for approximately 4.1 million years.

Megacerops was identifical by the two blunt horns on the tip of its snout. Rib wounds suggests that males used them to fight off rivals, although they may also have been used to defend themselves from predators.
