The Velociraptor is probably just as well known as the Tyrannosaurus Rex. This is partially due to the fact that both of these dinosaurs played such a large role in the very popular Jurassic Park movies. However, the Velociraptor may have been a bit different than the depiction of it that many of you have seen on the big screen. This dinosaur was actually no bigger than a present day turkey.
Also It may come as some surprise that it ranked amongst the smartest of the dinosaurs. The Velociraptor was smarter than the Stegosaurus, the T-Rex, and the Ankylosaurs. Its small size did not play as much of a factor in its intelligence as one might at first think. In fact along with the Velociraptor some of the smartest dinosaurs were actually also some of the smallest ones.
