When I was a kid growing up in the 70's T-Rex was the big dino on campus when it came to overall favorites.  I though having to be different decided I wanted a favorite all to my "own" so I went with the Ankylosaurus.  And even today the tank with the clubbed tail still ranks high for sentimental reasons.  And though it is classified as a synapsid I absolutely loved Dimetrodon, still do.  (Even when I found out as a kid that they were not true dinosaurs.)

Hey newbloodmoon -- Ankylosaurus is my favorite too - and all of those short squat guys with the spikes and weird club or spiked tails.

Embrace the impossible.

It had actually taken me a very long time to like velociraptor for the very same reason that caused you to love them.  It seemed everyone around was a Raptor backer, but overall I think they are pretty kick butt all together.

I was always interested in the Pterosaurs, Velociraptors and most big Meat eaters (T-Rex, Giganatosaurus, Carcharodontosaurus). Oh I also like lypluradon (sp?)

Is that some kind of small fawn-like dinosaur?  I gotta go find a picture of that.

As far as predators I always liked Allasuarus.  As posted before, probably because they don't get picked much.

For a regal dinosaur, I think the crown would belong to Crylophosaurus...Not only was it the only large predator in Antarctica, it had beautiful head adornments...Imagine it strutting!

I don't think I had ever picked anything because of how regal it is.  That would probably cause me to choose something squat, and ugly just to be different.
