God designed quite a variety of body types within the dinosaurs. Their brains are no exception. The size of dinosaur brains varied from very small to proportionately very large.

Troodon, a carnivore that looked similar to the Deinonychus pictured above, had a brain size similar to a mammal or bird of today, making it one of the smartest dinosaurs we know about.

Not so smart (I didn’t want to call him dumb)

Stegosaurus had a brain the size of a walnut in that huge body. Chewing and walking at the same time was probably too difficult for him.
