Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Though it's not a dinosaur, the first thing to pop into my head was a Megalodon.

Velociraptor used to be my favorite until I discovered that Jurassic Park grossly overexaggerated its' size and appearance. Now I'm back to my childhood standby Triceratops.

Triceratops, like Uncle Beazely, formerly at the Smithsonian when my kids were growing up.

Technically not a dinosaur, but the Plesiosaur would have to be the coolest in my books. Can anyone say Nessie?

Pterodactyl. It had a much greater range of havoc it could unleash on its prey. It controlled the skies. I mean it could hunt in a 100 mile radius per day. Oh, there is a flood coming, I will fly away. Man there is no food here, I will fly away. Fire, maybe I should fly away. I am amazed it is even extinct.

Ankylosaurus and Stegasaurus have got to be tops in the cool category. But my favorite dinosaur is the apatosaurus.

A pterodactyl isn't a dinosaur. It's not even a specific animal; it's a genus.

I think I read somewhere that triceratops weren't an actual species, that they were the juvenile form of the torosaurus. I did! I did read that!

Crichton didn't... not... exactly. Part of it was using sloppy taxonomy of the day that classified deinonychus in the "velociraptor family" as referenced in the novel.

Most of the time when people say Jurassic Park they have no idea who Micheal Crichton is and are only vaguely aware that the film was based on a book.

The coolest dinosaur, in my opinion, is the ruby-throated hummingbird.
