Troodon was about 6 feet (1.8 meters) long, 3 feet (0.9 meters) tall, and probably weighed about 130 pounds (60 kilograms).
Troodon was one of the cleverest dinosaurs, having a large brain in proportion to its body weight. It was probably about as smart as a modern bird. Some scientists have even suggested that were it not for the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction, Troodon, or one of its relatives, may eventually have evolved human-level intelligence! In 1982, paleontologist Dale Russell and taxidermist/artist Ron Sequin created a model of a "Dinosauroid" based on their speculation of what an intelligent evolved descendant of Troodon might have looked like.
The name Troodon means "wounding tooth" and refers to the animal's sharp teeth with serated edges.
Troodon was a carnivore (meat-eater) that lived from 74 to 65 million years ago
