For me, it'd be woolly Mammoths! They were like Elephants mixed with Highland Cows, and they were just adorable!!

Edit: Don't know why that double-posted! Have locked the other version of this post.

Prehistoric. So that gets rid of recently extinct creatures.

As much as I'd love to see a real life dinosaur, I don't want some Jurassic Park thing going on in modern society because I'll no doubt be a prey unless I become a professional hunter.

Introduce something seemingly benign back and the ecosystem gets shifted, too, so it's a pretty hard question without ample research.

Fuck it. Watch the world burn. Bring back Megalodons.

kinda hard to choose. Mammoths and Tasmanian tigers have already been mentioned, and I love them. but the list of awesome animals doesn't stop there. Moa, megatheriums, woolly rhinos, hemicyons (half-dog, half-bear mammals)…

wait, I know who I'd bring back. the Paraceratherium aka Baluchiterium aka Indricotherium. one of the largest terrestrial mammals ever. as a kid, I loved seeing this critter pop up in books I was reading. I thought they were a prehistoric elephant/giraffe hybrid, but they're actually tall, hornless rhinos XD

Ah screw it, I guess we can bring back some recently extinct animals too if we really want! I'd bring back the Sloth Lemur, two of my favourite animals combined would've been awesome! (technically they really weren't that closely related to Sloths, but they were cute anyway and I love the name!)

Yes.
I am that person who wants giant scorpions, hellish sea creatures and monster millipedes running around.
Bring back giant spiders while we're at it as well.

It's weird to think that those creatures lived on the same planet as us, they look like randomly generated creatures from Spore. (I had no idea they were so huge though, wow. o_o)

I'd maybe bring back Neanderthals? Apparently they were stronger than Homo Sapiens, and they actually developed a lot of the same tools and rituals that "we" did. Although, their brains were optimized for controlling vision and balance, so they weren't as good at socializing. Idk how much of that is pop science or whatever, but it would be interesting to see them revived into the modern day.

Also I'd bring back Sid the Sloth from Ice Age. Before anyone says that he's a fictional character, there's actually a growing consensus among scientists that he was a real figure from prehistoric times. I'm not trying to force my opinions on anyone, but here's some evidence for your consideration.

I'd wanna bring back Argentavis Magnificens or the Giant Teratorn, it's the biggest flying bird ever.

I love how everyone mentioned different animals. so many amazing creatures :D

and wow that bird is just... the best thing I ever saw since the LotR/Hobbit giant eagles.

ClickMe2WinFREE-iPod:Before anyone says that he's a fictional character, there's actually a growing consensus among scientists that he was a real figure from prehistoric times.

could Sid be mankind's first recorded character?

actually, think about it... prehistoric people probably created a ton of characters we don't even know about. folkloric figures, animal gods, that kind of stuff. some of those cave paintings probably showed legends and conjectures based on what they saw outside.

Moth, please. I go into a savage kill-mode as soon as I see a cockroach. Imagine what I'd have to do to kill one of those. I'd need a machete.

Plesiosaur I think that's how you spell it, mainly cuz I really like Nessie, even though realistically Nessie would not be one, I'd still like to see a real one.

I'd say an azhdarchid pterosaur like e.g. Quetzalcoatlus!

They must have been quite impressive when walking around on land. (They could look a modern day giraffe in the eye!)

And of course they must have been even more impressive while flying!
