T-Rex. Hands down. It would make a handy mount, and could rampage on command. Plus, it would be awesome.

Triceratops! You can ride it, and the frill and horns make it the perfect battle machine.

A Tyrannosaurus Rex. They make very loyal pets, and are good watch-dinosaurs!

they have stubby arms how are they they going to grab things and i betcha that a Raptor could take down a T-rex.

Bullshit! =] For one thing, velociraptors were only three feet long and covered in feathers. Maybe a whole pack of Utahraptors could take one down, but they wouldn’t be dumb enough to attack one anyways.

Whoa learn your dinos first Raptors were NOT covered in feathers and they were bigger then 3 feet long, they were the most fastest and agile dinos ever, at least that’s my opinion!!.

From Wikipedia:

“Velociraptor was a mid-sized dromaeosaurid, with adults measuring up to 2.07 m (6.8 ft) long, 0.5 m (1.6 ft) high at the hip, and weighing up to 15 kg (33 lb).”

“In 2007, paleontologists Alan Turner, Peter Makovicky, Mark Norell and colleagues reported the discovery of quill knobs on a well-preserved Velociraptor mongoliensis forearm from Mongolia, confirming the presence of feathers in this species.”

So it was six feet long from snout to tail (my mistake, sorry), but it was only a couple feet high. I was kind of disappointed when I learned that – I had grown up thinking of raptors as big and badass.

its okay, but lets agree that Raptors and T-rex’s are fierce dinos. :)

Agreed : )

I think I would have to go with the little guy from dino run. But if I had a dinosaur, I would live in constant fear of Tyrannosaurus Reich

… also, right now is a really bad time to get a dinosaur, seeing as we are in the middle of a meteor shower. From what I remember, dinosaurs don’t take kindly to giant rocks streaking across the midnight sky.

I second Triceratops, because its frill would not only make it an awesome “battle machine”, as Eambos said, it would be quite elegant.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

what about a stegasaures or the spiked tail one?

Hobbes's avatar

The stegosaurus had a spiked tail.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

oh then that’s the one i meant.

shockvalue's avatar

it’ a win win.

Something small, like a Brontosaurus.

I think it would look cool walking it on a leash.
