There is the quote about alligator brain size:

"For an animal with a maximum brain mass of less than ½ ounce (~10.5

grams), alligators demonstrate some interesting behaviour"

Also in a National Geographic program they were exploring the mass death of alligators in a USA lake. During the examining the corpses they show the brain with a size of a wallnut and said that brain was 8 grams. The brain was protected by a one inch of skull bone located between the eyes.
