Troodon was a small but deadly hunter. Unlike most dinosaurs, its big eyes faced partly forward, probably giving Troodon the same kind of binocular vision used by modern predators like cats. Opposable fingers enabled it to grasp its prey, something few other dinosaurs could do. The second toe on each foot had a large slashing claw like those carried by raptors. Finally, the ratio of its brain weight to its body weight was greater than that of almost any other dinosaur.
Genus Name: Troodon ("wounding tooth")
