It would also require A LOT of additional calories to sustain that complex brain. Brain size doesn't necessarily correlate with intelligence (whale shark has huge brain but is stupid as fuck compared to humans), what matters is the structure usually and from there which structures are larger in mass comparative to body ratio. (Example: dogs are "smarter" than cats because they have larger frontal lobes - people think cats are naturally aloof compared to dogs when in reality thats a anthropomorphic trait imposed to cats when in reality cats don't follow commands well because they just don't have the brains for it)

These complex structures require huge amounts of calories to sustain. In humans its like 25% of daily calories are spent in the brain.
