Top 10 Extinct Animals You Would Most Like to See Resurrected

The Top Ten Extinct Animals You Would Most Like to See Resurrected

1 Woolly Mammoth

I really want to see them again, they're my favorite extinct animal

Wolly mammoths could be coming back because scientists have found 10'000 year old blood from the icy carcass of a a female mammoth in Siberia. this could be used to clone the mammoths and bring them back to life.

Huge animal and it reminds me of mamoswine and ice age

I love manny from ice age

2 Tyrannosaurus Rex Tyrannosaurus, meaning "tyrant lizard", from the Ancient Greek tyrannos, "tyrant", and sauros, "lizard" is a genus of coelurosaurian theropod dinosaur. It also had a tremendous bite force, the strongest of any Dinosaur and living terrestrial animal. Its bite force reached up to 12,800 pounds (roughly ...read more.

Do you really want them back? Well kill most of the toptenners on here.

Nice but remember Jurassic park?

Jurassic park all over again

It's one of my favorite extinct animals but I don't think this would be a good idea

3 Saber-toothed Cat

I love these guys and they're my second favorite extinct animal (mammoth as first) but this wouldn't be a good idea... Especially because they live in North America and I don't want to be mauled by one

4 Megalodon The megalodon is an extinct species of shark which was about 59 feet (18 meters) long and hunted in the seas until about 1.5 million years ago. It was similar to today's great white shark-but three times longer and 20 times heavier. ...read more.

The shark that could destroy whaling boats with ease, with bulletproof skin, the mega shark the size of a sperm whale that could destroy a pack of (overrated) orcas. As from The Guardian, since people complain about humans wrecking the ocean, why not level the playing field with an 80 ton, shark that could swim faster than a speed boat

Why do you wanna see this animal resurrected? I mean yes it's cool looking but this prehistoric species of shark can eat you up whole. it is the biggest shark to have ever lived besides the whale shark.

Nobody likes surfers and dolphins are over rated.

Oh yeah! I would love to see this shark come back and eat everything that it could.

5 Dodo

Great idea! We will bring back the ones we have killed.

Small, friendly and cute! Who wouldn't want their own pet dodo?

Yeah!

Bring back the damn dodo. The poor thing went extinct almost as quickly as it was discovered, becease it never ran away from us. Why?

It didn’t have to for ages! It evolved with no natural predators, so I would really like to se the bird get a second chance.

6 Tasmanian Tiger

As cool as it would be to have dinosaurs and mammoths back, I think that we need something less dangerous. The Tasmanian tiger, or as I like to call it, the thylacine, should certainly come back. The story of it's extinction is kind of a bummer. Plus, there's even the possibility that they're still around. Either way, I sure hope that the day of September 7, 1936 wasn't the last we've seen of the thylacine.

It be cool to have these blood thirsty beasts around, I kinda like em

Then they could eat the invasive animals.

Bring it back

7 Pliosaurus (Predator X)

Some say Pliosaurus is rumored to still be alive. remember the loch ness monster?

Loch Ness Monster is believed to be a Plesiosaur

8 Auroch

Cool animal

9 Baiji River Dolphin
10 Moa

I'd like to see a relatively peaceful ostrich roaming New Zealand. They look like cool big birbs.

The Contenders

11 Triceratops Triceratops is a genus of herbivorous ceratopsid dinosaur that first appeared during the late Maastrichtian stage of the late Cretaceous period, about 68 million years ago in what is now North America.

Who cares about traffic, a Triceratops wouldn't. Stuck on the road with your Triceratops? Just charge through and laugh.

I think Triceratops should be resurrected back from extinction and would make a good candidate for domestication for meat and eggs, probably also for mounts (since they're large herbivores). Imagine seeing a farm full of Triceratops? :D

12 Gigantopithecus Blacki

They're under-represented in the media and I think they should be brought back for research purposes.

13 Brachiosaurus Brachiosaurus is a genus of sauropod dinosaur that lived in North America during the Late Jurassic, about 154–153 million years ago.

These non-avian dinosaurs would make good zoo animals if they are/were brought back from extinction.

If these dinosaurs came back, giraffes would finally have something to look up to.

14 Neanderthal
15 Irish Elk

I have never seen anything more elegant in my life. This is honestly one of the most majestic creatures to ever roam this planet. I can only pray that the decision to resurrect this beauty is made as soon as possible. It would be one of the easier ones to do and the thought of seeing a living one in my lifetime excites me greatly. Imagine seeing a giant deer with antlers over 12 feet wide and stands up at seven feet just at the shoulder. Truly a magnificent creature!

This was the largest deer to walk the earth until mankind hunted it to extinction. That was one huge deer with a one huge rack. Impressive!

Beautiful creatures

16 Passenger Pigeon

On September 1, 2014, it will be the 100th anniversary of the passenger pigeon's extinction. A century of empty skies.

Actually, skies are not empty yet (because we still have other birds, bats, insects, and aircraft).

Yeah

17 Quetzalcoatlus

This flying reptile is so pterrifying but it would be majestic in the sky.

18 Ground Sloth
19 Homo Habilis
20 Caspian Tiger

It should of never went extinct. I’m so sorry to this creature for not helping it. Its not right to judge animals because of what they are.

21 Velociraptor Mongoliensis
22 Allosaurus Allosaurus is a genus of large theropod dinosaur that lived 155 to 150 million years ago during the late Jurassic period.
23 Cave Hyena
24 Spinosaurus Spinosaurus is a genus of theropod dinosaur that lived in what now is North Africa, during the lower Albian to lower Cenomanian stages of the Cretaceous period, about 112 to 97 million years ago.
25 Parasaurolophus Parasaurolophus is a genus of ornithopod dinosaur that lived in what is now North America during the Late Cretaceous Period, about 76.5–74.5 million years ago.
26 Carnotaurus Carnotaurus, meaning "Meat eating Bull" in Ancient Greek, is a genus of abelisauridae theropod dinosaur that lived in what is now South America about 70 million years ago in the Late Cretaceous period.

Carnotaurus is my favorite dinosaur, but I don't want to meet one due to the fact that it might've been very aggressive.

27 Nyctosaurus Nyctosaurus is a genus of pterodactyloid pterosaur, the remains of which have been found in the Niobrara Formation of the mid-western United States, which, during the late Cretaceous Period, was covered in an extensive shallow sea.

A antlered crested pterosaur that lived by the prehistoric coast and sea.

28 Japanese Wolf
29 Marsupial Lion

All the species of marsupial lion please

30 Diprotodon
31 Therizinosaurus
32 Pteranodon Pteranodon lived during the late Cretaceous geological period of North America in present-day Kansas, Alabama, Nebraska, Wyoming, and South Dakota.
33 Protoceratops Protoceratops is a genus of sheep-sized herbivorous ceratopsian dinosaur, from the Upper Cretaceous Period of what is now Mongolia.
34 Sarcosuchus
35 Stegosaurus Stegosaurus is a type of armored dinosaur. Their fossil bones have been found in rocks dated to the Late Jurassic period, between 155 and 150 million years ago, in the western United States and Portugal.
36 Pyrenean Ibex
37 Ivory-Billed Woodpecker
38 Megatherium
39 Heath Hen

Yes! Out of all the animals people are currently trying to resurrect, this makes the most sense to me. The only real reason they went extinct was because of over hunting, so they're habitat and niches are still there. Some other species I'd like to see come back include Huia, Bachman's Warbler, Gastric-Brooding Frog, and Pyrenean Ibex. Some I completely disagree with. How is the Woolly Mammoth number 1!?!? That's a horrible idea! They were killed a long time ago, and the climate has changed completely. Where would we put them, in a zoo? So people can gawk at them? There's just no place for Woolly Mammoths anymore. Other species, like the Baji River Dolphin and Ivory-billed Woodpecker, shouldn't be brought back because their habitat has been mostly destroyed, leaving nothing left for them...

40 Great Auk
41 Giant Short faced Bear
42 Opabinia
43 Diplodocus Diplodocus is a genus of diplodocid sauropod dinosaurs whose fossils were first discovered in 1877 by S. W. Williston.
44 Chalicotherium
45 Ancylotherium
46 Psittacosaurus Psittacosaurus is a genus of extinct ceratopsian dinosaur from the Early Cretaceous of what is now Asia, existing between 123.2 and 100 million years ago.
