Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Saurischia
  Suborder Theropoda
  (unranked) Coelurosauria
  Infraorder Deinonychosauria
  Family Troodontidae
  Genus Troodon
Troodon was a carnivore (meat-eater) that lived in North America during the late Cretaceous period, about 74 to 65 million years ago. It was one of the dinosaurs that died out in the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction 65 million years ago.

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.
