    Many dinosaurs did have brains very small compared to mammals. That does not mean they were unintelligent. The dinosaur with the largest brain compared to body size was the Troodon, a small dinosaur in a family related to raptors, which are known as dromaeosaurs. These were the most intelligent dinosaurs, utilizing communication and pack-hunting skills to bring down large prey, as wolves do. The less intelligent dinosaurs were the large herbivores, like the sauropods, ceratopsians, ankylosaurs and stegosaurs. I would have to say that the migrating herd varieties like the hadrosaurs were more intelligent than the other herbivores.

    I said, "Hi, I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute. Then Pete got him to autograph my sign for me because I was too polite to ask myself since he was on his way to eat. Pete took of photo of him holding it. - 8/2/2014.

    Make sure they are the small, docile ones, like leaellynasaura!

    No, they will not. My tyrannosaurus Rex's name will be Johnny. And triceratops' will be Henry. And so on.

    Being a nuclear dinosaur myself, I can attest to the fact that my brain is quite large. It is stuffed with knowlege, opinions, and preconceived notions. And as for your farm: do not be surprised if I show up looking for one of the creatures. I have been known to do this, such as in the documentary "Godzilla v. Mechagodzilla II" from the mid-90s. Furthermore, if Rodan gets there first, tell him to wait; I have unfinished business with that jerk. And if MGII shows up, send him the other way. The stupid JSDF must not interfere with my brawling.
    Quand ils ont dis "Vous vous asseyez," je me suis levé.

    Deinonychus was twice as big as a veliciraptor, and utahraptor was the size of a grizzly bear. It's the biggest raptor to ever live, that we know of.

    Oh, I totally am! I written projects on dinosaur evolution, read about them and drawn them since I was 8. My other forte is astronomy, which I've been studying intensely since I was 7. I'm just a huge nerd.
