      Ok, since we're talking numbers, then # 10 is my favorite. That thing looks out-of-this world! It would have been #1 in my book.

          If you’re talking about Quetzalcoatlus, then it’s not a bird, it’s a pterosaur.

    My favorite is Quetzalcoatlus. Imagine having that thing swooping down on you from the sky.

      I agree. What kind of animal could you eat with that set of teeth? It almost seems like one of those fantastic animals they wrote about in the middle ages that people thought existed, like a unicorn. Are they sure this animal really existed?

        According to this article: http://fossil.wikia.com/wiki/Helicoprion

        They now think that perhaps the spiral "tooth whorl" was actually located in the throat rather than the jaw of the fish.

    Opabinia & Jaekelopterus look like gigantic sushi toppings.

    Helicoprion…f**k…

    Quetzalcoatlus looks like a bird with a cape & a French berret.

    Dimorphodon = The Devil's Parrot.

    This would be such an amazing article, if only the author knew that archaeologists have nothing to do with ancient creatures such as these.

      Not a bird, a pterosaur. They’re reptiles people! Scaly, cold-blooded reptiles!

    The picture you have labeled as “Quetzalcoatlus” is a picture of Lacusovagus.

    Archaeologists do not study prehistoric animals. PALEONTOLOGISTS do. This mistake occurs several times in this article.

    Bad English, poorly misinterpreted information, and simply false statements about the animals listed here make this piece simply a bunch of unreliable words stinging pretty pictures together.

    “It can be said that the creature is related to birds of all types due to it having wings.” – what an idiotic statement!!

    Hello,

    My Dad found a fossil that appears to be a foot. It looks as if it had 3 toes and claws which seemed to be quite large in size. I believe it may be a prehistoric sloth but the size wouldnt make much sence seeing as the sloth was quite large, and this fossile is a little smaller than my foot and I wear a 6 1/2 – 7. I belive it is the whole foot it has a bone on the end where it was attached to another bone so it could bend. It is black and shiney in color, it has a tanish brown color on the bottom with grooves. I would like to possibly get some info on what I have. I am 22 & have always been intrigued with animals and dinos, and am extremely excited about the.find.
