Which dinosaur was the smartest?
>

Which dinosaur was the smartest? The answer is the Troodon, related to the velociraptor but in fact, the dinosaur with the highest brain/body mass ratio - meaning that it was probably the most intelligent.

Thank you for participating in our poll! The web's top answer was the velociraptor.

Now, we are opening up a new poll.



I invite you to particpate and tell us what you think.

Speaking of longevity, we just had the opportunity to investigate at close quarters the bristlecone pine and the ancient bristlecone pine forest in the White Mountains of California. Adapted as it is to an environment of extreme aridity, just the needles alone have a lifespan of 30-40 years. Sprouts may take years to gain a foothold and tree rings indicate the circumference of the trees increases by just 1/100th of an inch per year. In fact, lying around on the ground is dead wood that science estimates to be 8,000 years old. One of the trees in the White Mountains is 4,750 years old, classified as the oldest living organism on Earth. When the boundary lines of the pyramid of Khufu were being plotted on the plateau of Giza

  
this Bristlecone pine was a sapling on the heights of White Mountain Peak.
