Re: If there was one dinosaur you could "tunnel thru time" and bring back, what would you pick?



I side with you Margaret. Just outside of dinosauromorphs there is the little 
enigmatic Saltopus elginensis or for
that matter any advanced pseudosuchian. What was there metabolism like ? Were 
they even insulated ? Getting
a wee bit too close to BANDits here but, you have to admit ... a fascinating 
conjecture.

The basalmost dinosaur. SO many questions can be answered with that animal.
