what’s your favorite dinosaur?


You know you’ve thought about it, so:

What’s your favorite dinosaur?

Mine’s gotta be T. rex. Because she never let the handicap of her hilariously tiny arms stop her from being a bad-ass.

Your turn…

    Ankylosaurus magniventris because a good defense is the best offense and Deinonychus antirrhopus because a good brain to body ratio is an even better offense.

    Tylosaurus was my favorite in kindergarten because I imagined them battling Megalodons and giant squid in the bathtub… sadly I soon realized that they were not contemporaneous.

    Triceratops. The babies just look cute. Well, Cera from The Land Before Time did, when she hatched.

    My mom loves to tell this story: We were on the freeway when I was a child, probably 2nd or 3rd grade. Suddenly, I do this dramatic double-take: “Mom! I think I just saw a dead dinosaur! I think it was a baby triceratops!!” It was most likely a ‘dead’ rug on the shoulder.

    i’m an Ankylosaurus fan myself.

    I’ve always been a Stegosaurus fan. I guess as a little boy I thought the plated back and spiked tail were just really, really cool. And I bet they made it a pain for your favorite dino to attack my favorite dino. ;-)

    It’s interesting to read these days that a lot more dinosaurs than we expected were possibly feathered. I wonder if Stegosaurus was. It’s cool that even after having their images embedded in our brains since childhood, dinosaurs can still surprise us.

  • Joanne Howe

    Archaeopteryx. How can you not love a creature that bridges the gap between dinosaurs and parrots? It’s got a beak with TEETH!

  • Kirk Aplin

    Baby Sinclair. ‘Gotta Love Me!’

  • althea

    Well, you can’t fault a guy who looks like a horny toad.

  • althea

    There’s a lot more dinosaurs than we expected, period. Since I really don’t have a working knowledge of more than just the ones I grew up with – so to speak – I’ll choose Stegosaurus as well. It’s kinda fancy and can be rendered really cute and dragon-like.

  • Don’t forget the Stegosaurus’ patented Thagomizer.

  • I’m a Triceratops fan meself. The idea of harnessing one of those bad boys and working our way through traffic has been a fantasy since learning to drive across US 19…

  • Bluejay

    I did mention the spiked tail. ;-)

  • bronxbee

    probably not technically a dinosaur but i’ve always loved pterodactyls. the first time i ever saw a flying pelican, it gave me chills thinking it looked just like what i always pictured a pterodactyl to look like in flight.

  • but you didn’t call it the thagomizer like you should have. shame.

  • Isabelle May

    Microraptor, because scientists have managed to get a pretty good idea of what they looked like (and they most likely had black iridescent feathers).

  • Gee

    T-Rex forever! One of the most iconic characters on film.

  • Dokeo

    Indeed, the Stegosaurus (and its thagomizer) is the best dino ever!

  • CB

    Well I’m a “right tool for the job” kind of guy so my fovorite depends on what I’m planning on doing that day.

    But the question reminds me of this guy’s “What’s the best dinosaur?” routine. I think some of you will be pleased with his conclusion. And fans of a certain movie might be upset. :)


  • RogerBW

    Dimetrodon, because of the sail.

  • Tonio Kruger

    Amen. Even though dimetrodons aren’t technically dinosaurs.
    Then again I always prefer to call them “finbacks”…

  • Tonio Kruger

    Stegosaurs rule! I’ve always been a Stegosaur fan as well. Personally I blame the Evelyn Sibley Lampman books…

  • Tonio Kruger

    Cue Yosemite Sam: “Great horny toads!”

  • Danielm80

    I could use a thagomizer. I work in public service.
