Aerilon;5399946 Obviously the Utahraptor would be a wiser choice, I believe there is a third, larger 'raptor' type too isn't there?? ...might have to research that.

there's the Gigantoraptor (i put up a pic earlier), which was 9 metres tall or something. not as long as the utahraptor, though. not sure it's strictly a raptor either.

Mr. Matt;5400406They wouldn't be able to survive for a number of reasons, as Aerilon pointed out. The main one, which is what I assume he meant when he said 'climate', is that the temperature of Earth is much cooler than it was back in their days, to say nothing of the atmosphere being radically different.[/QUOTE]You assume correctly. :) That in addition to any diseases that happen to be floating about.

Mr. Matt;5400406Megalosaurus - Like a smaller, nimbler T-rex without wussy arms, these guys ate Stegosaurs for breakfast. Literally. If you want cavalry, these guys are it. Also, to see if we figured out what shape they were supposed to be.

Via Google Images, looks like a cross between a T-Rex and Allosaurus.

[QUOTE=Mr. Matt;5400406]Neanderthal - I'm cheating and going a bit more recent. But I think having a few Neanderthals around in the present day might be interesting. They could often have larger cranial capacities than regular humans despite often being smaller in stature. Raised in a modern environment with access to technology of our level, I wonder what they could do? Probably not a great deal different than ourselves, but it's interesting to speculate.

Well, you really are going more recent with this last one, aren't you? =p

Nah, it was the Utharaptor that I was thinking of. :uhm:

[/COLOR] Liopleurodon was a plesiosaur. And Dunkleosteus would have swallowed it whole!

I told you I was cheating, and cheat I did. Shamelessly too, if I do say so myself. But if the technology existed to resurrect an extinct species, I can't think of a more interesting one to go for, and technically they are 'prehistoric'...

I'm afraid I was going by footage seen in 'Walking with Dinosaurs', from that, it seemed quite big, but by all accounts, wasn't that much so. :/
