Extinct Animals You Would Like to See Resurrected

The Top Ten

1 Woolly Mammoth

Huge animal and it reminds me of mamoswine and ice age

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.

Best extinct animal!

2 Megalodon 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.

Well just be areful where youngo than. Megalodon dis not prefer all waters.

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 Tyrannosaurus Rex Tyrannosaurus Rex Tyrannosaurus, meaning "tyrant lizard", from the Ancient Greek tyrannos, "tyrant", and sauros, "lizard" is a genus of coelurosaurian theropod dinosaur.

Nice but remember Jurassic park?

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

Jurassic park all over again

Uh

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

Yeah!

6 Tasmanian Tiger 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

Bring it back

I wish I was borin in the 1900s so I could see one of these babies in person. They're just so cute. - Powerfulgirl10

7 Baiji River Dolphin
8 Moa
9 Pliosaurus (Predator X)

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

10 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!

Beautiful creatures

The Contenders

11 Neanderthal
12 Passenger Pigeon

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

Yeah

13 Ground Sloth
14 Auroch

Cool animal

15 Gigantopithecus Blacki
16 Brachiosaurus Brachiosaurus

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

17 Cave Hyena
18 Homo Habilis
19 Megatherium
20 Pyrenean Ibex
