      Hi hunterthea10,
      The pterodactyl, because it was huge – the biggest thing flying on the planet.

      When on the ground, it was as tall as a giraffe and in the sky it has a 40 feet wingspan which is the size of a fighter jet………could you imagine seeing that today.

      I would be absolutely petrified if it was alive to day, but I would still love to see it flying around. Also I really want to know if it does sound that scary as it does in Jurassic Park 😛

      What would you save?

      Hi hunterthea10,

      I think a big one – I think there’s one called an Argentinosaurus (found in Argentina!) that was longer than several double decker buses put together. Must have looked awesome. And I think it was a vegitarean so it wouldn’t eat us all.

      Hi hinterthea10,

      Well…I think raptors are really cool but I’d be too terrified to leave the house if they existed so I’d say the Triceratops. It’d make an amazing pet (although you’d need a big kennel…) and you could ride it to school or work!

      Which dinosaur would you pick?

      Hi hunterthea10 ,

      I wouldn’t go for anything carnivorous that might try and eat me. I think I’d go for a brontosaurus and ride it round like in the Flintstones. Beats getting the tube to work!
