As we know today, some people think all dinosaurs are dumb, however, new research says T. Rex was a smart as a chimp, which I’m a bit skeptical about, Carnosaurs However, Like giganotosaurus.

Giganotosaurus

 

Many paleontologists and scientists show evidence that Giganotosaurus had an unusual small brain for its size, about the size of a banana, Scientists usually call him the Dimwit of the large theropods, I have respect for this theropod, but I didn’t know he was a that stupid. the other large Carnosaur Carcharodontosaurus.

Carcharodontosaurus guards it’s kill.

 

Carcharodontosaurus was relatively similar to Giganotosaurus. It was a rival to Spinosaurus. It had a small brain as well, about the same as Giganotosaurus. It was a little bit smarter than Giganotosaurus, but not by much. I don’t know we’re to go now, but I am going to leave it up to you guys to finish it for me. Are Carnosaurs the Real Dimwits Of The Theropds? (Comment Below Your Opinion)

Well yes, but actually no.

 

Brain size doesn't have much to do with intelligence, like with T-rex, it used up a huge chunk of its brain for its phenomenal senses of smell and sight, which is why some researchers concluded that it was no smarter than a chicken. Same goes for Carnosaurs, giga could actually be smarter than carc, it just depends on which has better developed senses. Also, Megalosaurs, Ceratosaurs, and Coelophysoids would probably have been even less intelligent than the Carnosaurs, so they probably wouldn't necessarily have been the dumbest of all Theropods. Sometimes people grossly over estimate the intelligence of Dinosaurs, like Velociraptor or T-rex, because they're among the "smartest" of the Theropods. That doesn't necessarily mean they're really... smart. Also thanks for the shout out!

no problem, and I also have a question do you think the claim that "T. Rex Was As Smart As A Chimp" Is A true Claim or is That Skeptical To You?

I don't think any non avian Dinosaur would have been as smart as a chimp, especially with most estimates I've heard of including Velociraptor and Troodon only as smart as Turkeys and Chicken. Also, Tarbosaurus, Daspletosaurs, etc. probably would have been almost as intelligent as T-rex, and most Dromaeosaurs would have been too, as well members of Avialae, so T-rex really shouldn't be in the top ten at all lol. Not even including Oviraptorosaurs, and possibly Therizinosaurs, Ornithomimosaurs, and Alvarezsaurs.

Well some people do underestimate the T Rex these days. But We will never know the truth, only if they were Alive. Anyways Thanks for responding :)

I have a bit of a feeling T-Rex was pretty smart, not genius, but had some good level of intelligence. I'd say the same for some other theropods, but yeah, I think some were pretty.....

dumb.

when you with your bff and your team wins
