Sauropod skeletons, as well as those of dinosaurs such as the stegosauraus were really, really big, and had really little heads (which makes sense, 'cause otherwise they would have fallen over). I read years ago (not quoting a source, just in general) that the stegosauraus had a brain about the size of a walnut, or in that vicinity. Are there any examples in nature that support an animal of that size existing with that cranial capacity? Even a giraffe has a much larger brain, proportionately speaking. Could a brain the size of a baseball coordinate the movements of a gigantic, complicated animal like a dinosaur?
