          That paper just rebutted wildly exaggerated claims of T rex's cognition e.g. that it was a smart as a monkey. Your impression of things "devolving" is the result of you reading headlines and leddit posts instead of actually reading the fricking publications.

              brain mass to body mass isn't a reliable indicator of intelligence

              What

              brain mass to body mass isn't a reliable indicator of intelligence

              said.
              EQ works fine to indicate intelligence of mammals and birds, but it doesn't really apply to most other large clades. There are many different types of intelligence, and many different ways of going about evolving it. Moray eels have extremely low EQs, but they have evolved sophisticated cooperative hunting strategies with groupers, and can recognise divers they know. Manta rays have an EQ less than half that of a house cat, but they pass the mirror test (so do ants, fwiw). octopodes have really low EQs, too. honeybees have lower EQs than slugs, but they have complex methods of communication that imply a much deeper level of thought than a slug.
              Given how long ago non-avian dinosaurs lived, it's not an extreme stretch to say that brain size wouldnt be as good of an indicator of intelligence for them as mammals and birds today, given triceratops, a large animal with display features that lived in herds, also has a lower eq than a slug.

                >Mirror test
                Is actually a highly flawed grooming instinct/reflection conditioning test and the last thing to determine self awareness. Ants passing it while every other mammal does not should be enough to tell you this.

                When you are told not to anthropomorphize animals do not think about dumb shit like dogs smiling (they do smile fyi). Think about the GENERATIONS of people who decided certain animals had no value whatsoever because they didn't care about or were frightened by a reflection in a lab, because being human, they thought that any self aware animal would be enamored by a mirror.

                There are youtube videos of dogs and cats passing the mirror test so also wonder if maybe SOIentists just shouldn't be trusted with animal behavior and may operate on incorrect presumptions

                >bees must have a deeper level of thought
                Or maybe the foundation of their behavior is simple instincts and slugs are relatively deep thinkers crippled by their limited bodies. We can program a robot to behave like a bee. Slug behavior is mysterious.

                I agree with the mirror test being flawed, but that's because of animals that rely on other senses more than sight. it's unlikely for an animal with a poor sense of self to somehow identify a reflection as itself. And we know bees are relatively intelligent for insects, because in tests they've shown a rudimentary understanding of numbers, as well as complex communication (waggle dancing to tell other bees in the hive the location of food based on angle compared to the sun as well as distance, etc.), and they exhibit play behaviour. none of those are simple.

          I accept your concession.

          Yes, you have stronger feelings towards fiction than towards reality. Dinosaur fiction was created because people thought it was cooler than reality, they wanted sleek lines, like living italian sportscars and spaceships. Dinosaur reality was ugly, ungainly, awkwardly evolved murder-beasts brainlessly roaming relatively ugly primitive forests carrying hundreds of pointless mutations and inefficient traits with them. Sort of like reality today - most animals are actually really awkward and ugly and it's no wonder that they all die off en masse if the temperature changes 3 degrees.

            animals that big didn't roam forests.
            also forests didn't exist for most of dinosaur history. It seems like you've never been in a forest.

              Animals that big, like elephants and mooses, do live in forest to this day.
              Forests existed through the whole mesozoic, the main difference between those and modern ones is that those would have been more open at ground level (just like forests with elephants are more open than forests without them)

                there are no land animals alive right now that were even close to the biggest dinosaurs. They didn't live in forests. They would have destroyed forests, just like elephants do.

                the lies you tell yourself on the internet don't create truth.

                scientists are well aware that elephants clear forests, and that large dinosaurs were far too big to live in forests without destroying them.

                they weren't and we know the vegetation of the areas they lived thanks to the fossil record, and many of them (including big ones) lived in open forests

      There’s no reason to change the parasaurs or the stance of the raptor. TBQH all the dinosaurs in JP are spot-on recreations. If you didn’t know all the same guys that designed the animals in Walking With Dinosaurs worked on Jurassic Park too. Really the only dinosaurs that need a tweak is gallimumus and raptors should have feathers and spino should be on 4 legs I guess.
      Just add flight feathers to the raptor’s arms on top and it’s good.
