I KNOW dilophosaurus existed....and I KNOW that the frills, size, and acid were complete BS, I was making a point that JP is NOt a reliable source...JP made the "dilophosaurus" 3 feet long, when it actually was around 20...and It didn't have frills, but a crest on its head...

I think the Troodon was one of the smartest, as it had a pretty large brain.

I'd say a dragon, because they can avoid all humans, while appearing before, and leaving clues for DC to pick up.

'Raptors couldn't have opened doors like they did in Jurassic Park.  Their hands weren't held palms-down, but palms-inwards like a bird....

And just because troodon has a larger brain to body ratio than a velociraptor doesn't mean it's any more intelligent.  The regions of the brain responsible for vision could just be greatly enlarged.

Well... out of all animals on this planet either extnicted or still existing. raptor is the least thing I would want to find myself face to face with.

Smart or not, raptor are probably way more capable of getting around obsclete, figure things out, etc... Due to their size (very similar to human), their hands/arms (probably not best but still...), their powerful legs and that fearsome claw.

So basically raptor is probably more capable of doing more things than any other species due to their structures.

TRODONS PEOPLE! They had bigger skulls than raptors, therefore more room for brain. Trodons were very smart, I've study alot about them in the past. I always thought that raptors were smart, but Trodons could do more than raptors. Scientist even made a model of a Trodon mother holding her babies like a human. These scientist really thought that Trodons could look and act like humans before the distinction.

Pitiful....You know, when the dinosaurs started to get sick and dissapear, then a huge thing from space fell on earth and made life even harder for the dinosuars. Dinosaurs got really sick from breathing in ash, they slowly died off. Really sad,

I picked Troodon... basically out of the choices offered in the VOTE it was probably the smartest - according to its brain capacity and what not.  I'm not saying that it was the smartest dinosaur, but it probably was in the running for the title.

And btw most (though probably not all) the predatory dinosaurs had forward looking -- or binocular  -- vision...that's what tended to give them the advantage as hunters.

I liked the JP movies...(I and 2 - not so much the last one no.gif ) but scientifically they were rather inaccurate... Dilophosuarus turned into a frilly lizard and the velociraptors given the proportions of their bigger and meaner cousins... A pretty movie and a terrific ride but extemely far out.

Troodon, largest brain of any dinosaur, largest brain to body size ratio, large eyes, very nimble, and it was a raptor

That is 100 0/0 true. most scincitists think that it was the smartes.

well i voted velociraptor coz its a smart dino hunted in packs n also that it could communitcate and thus being a perfect hunter, (after watchin jurrassic park) i found that the dino expert guy in number 3 said that if the velociraptors didnt die out the food chain woulda been different and us and them woulda been the domanent species.

and anyways peter griffins the bomb he dont need to open a door he just breaks it!! w00t.gif

All raptor are smart. I say "are" becouse the ev. into birds. And we know most birds are smart.

You can not take that movie as fact. Most raptors, like velociraptor war in fact only 3 feet tall and 6 feet long. troodon was 2 feet tall and 4 to 6 feet long. I have been learning about dinosuars seens I was 5.
