Extinct Animals that Would Make Good Pets


The Top Ten

1 Thylacine Thylacine The thylacine was the largest known carnivorous marsupial of modern times. It is commonly known as the Tasmanian tiger or the Tasmanian wolf.
2 Compsognathus Compsognathus Compsognathus is a genus of small, bipedal, carnivorous theropod dinosaur. Members of its single species Compsognathus longipes could grow to around the size of a turkey.

*Sighs* Great. Why is someone changing images of real Mesozoic animals to their fictional Jurassic Park/World counterparts? - DinoLover4242

Yay, accurate paleoart

3 Microraptor Microraptor
4 Propalaeotherium Propalaeotherium
5 Diictodon Diictodon
6 Epidexipteryx Epidexipteryx
7 Yi Qi Yi Qi
8 Coelurus Coelurus
9 Dwarf Elephant Dwarf Elephant
10 Velociraptor Velociraptor Velociraptor is a genus of dromaeosaurid theropod dinosaur that lived approximately 75 to 71 million years ago during the later part of the Cretaceous Period.

Wait, why did the Velociraptor image came out as a monster/Jurassic Park creature and not as an image of a real Velociraptor? Velociraptors did NOT look like Jurassic Park/World raptors in real life. They did not have pronated hands, they had feathers all over their bodies, they were not big (being only turkey-sized), and were most likely only about as smart as foxes. Jurassic Park/World raptors would NOT make good pets, I was actually trying to post the real feathery turkey-sized Velociraptors, which would make good pets. - DinoLover4242

The Contenders

11 Scansoriopteryx Scansoriopteryx
12 Pterodactyl Pterodactyl

Really? There's already Anurognathids, which were pterosaurs and would make good pets. Also, Big pterosaurs would NOT make good pets due to their large sizes and needing lots of food. - DinoLover4242

13 Wooly Mammoth Wooly Mammoth


Seriously? Mammoths would NOT make good pets due to their large sizes and probably due to being aggressive, sure, dwarf elephants could have been aggressive once, but these are exceptions due to their small sizes, as said earlier. - DinoLover4242

14 Troodon Troodon Troodon is a dubious genus of relatively small, bird-like dinosaurs known definitively from the Campanian age of the Cretaceous period. It includes at least one species, Troodon formosus, known from Montana.
15 Coelophysis Coelophysis Coelophysis was a small, slenderly-built, ground-dwelling, bipedal carnivore, that could grow up to 3 m long. Coelophysis is one of the earliest known dinosaur genera.
16 Rahonavis Rahonavis
17 Pakicetus Pakicetus
18 Cephalaspis Cephalaspis

This fish would make a good aquarium pet due to its small size and having a similar lifestyle to modern day plecos and other similar fish. - DinoLover4242

19 Petrolacosaurus Petrolacosaurus
20 Anurognathids Anurognathids

This group of pterosaur would make good pets due to their small sizes and, if possible, tameable. - DinoLover4242
