Nobody ever asked that when I was a kid. And nobody has ever asked that until today. So thanks for asking.

 

My fave dino from when I was a kid was my Sinclair Oil Company Pebble Skinned Triceratopian (far right). Newer research probably makes that guy a fictitious beastie at this point.

Interestingly enough, the family on Dinosaurs were also called the Sinclairs. I'm seeing a correlation here.

Today's question has been making me go back through my brain and think of all the shows I used to watch that had dinosaurs. Does anyone remember a cartoon from 1987 called Dinosaucers? Evolved dinosaurs from an alternate Earth that somehow got to our Earth, and had technology to "dinovolve" back into the form of their full dinosaur ancestor. Only lasted the one year. It was like Transformers but with dinosaurs.

I'll see your Dinosaucers and raise you Dino-Riders!

Triceratops! I mean they have found scarred skulls that had healed from T-Rex teeth!

 

So interesting that the T-Rex attacked from an angle that included the skull…

As a kid, I was a huge fan of the dimetrodon.

I don't really have any particular favorite at this point.

Not wanting to be  knowitall.. but..

The Dimetrodon is one of my favorite all time monsters, it's not a Dinosaur though, it existed during the Permian Period long before Dinos arrived.

Many people confuse it with Dinos.

 

 

 

This is my favorite as well. Just something about that huge sail on it's back. As far as it not being a dino, I really don't care. It's kinda like my dinos don't have feathers on them. :devil:

No... missed that one.

Now all I can think of is a T-Rex going :So WHO tastes like chicken?"

 

I bet a T-Rex tasted like chicken:

July 16: What is your favorite dinosaur...I care?

 

Inspiration for today's question:

  Reveal hidden contents

When you become a grownup, people stop asking what your favorite ...

 

Triceratops has always been a favorite. I also really like Ankylosaurs. Elasmosaurus isn't a dino but is pretty awesome. 

 

And just because it was so fun... I used to prep dinosaur fossils.

   My favorite dinosaur was the ancient stand-up forklift that they trained people on at one of my previous jobs... ::D:

 

 We actually called it the Dinosaur, and when you used it you said you were "taking the Dinosaur for a walk" - it was literally slower than a person walking fast.

(Which, of course then required you to sing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYKupOsaJmk )

 

I took a marker one time and wrote "Fred Flintstone Was Here" and "Barney Loves Betty" on the side.

I used to be super-duper into dinos when I was a kid. It's kinda hard to pick a favorite; I used to think they were all pretty cool. I guess I'll go with the T-Rex.

 

Also, I'm with @haldir; I don't care what science says. Dinosaurs don't have feathers.

Microraptor  is my favorite dinosaur.

the feather question was never in doubt for this one. It was trying really hard to be a bird, or at least a flying squirrel 

If a dragonfly can have four wings, why not a dinosaur?   Just because it sucked doesn't mean it wasn't worth trying for 12 million years or so.  

 

I also learned the DinosaurTrains  "Memorizing dinos A-Z" song so I could sing along with my 3yr old.  She lost interest but i'm keeping the song. 

just like "Fifty Nifty United States" (in alphabetical order)  song from 4th grade.  I like list songs.
