Sadly, we can not grow dinosaurs, Jurassic park is not possible. The DNA is too old and the DNA decomposed too much.

To be fair, Jurassic Park would've done fine if it weren't for Nedry shutting down power to the electric fences and other security devices.

Then someone else should make the comment "But riding a triceratops would be awesome!" Which gets followed up with "Grow dinosaurs a little."

but what do they mean with recently?
10 minutes ago or 10 thousand years ago?
Beside cloning extinct animals should never be released in the wild as they would just **** up the natural balance a little bit more.
for example
a bunch of saber tooth tiger get back from the death and get released into the wilds
the saber tooth tiger have no predators it would be to successful as the animals that were before that could get extinct.
same go for herbivores.

I was told once that we don't have a high enough oxygen percentage in the air for dinosaurs to survive. Animals in those days grew so big because of the high percentage of oxygen allowed them to grow to "Damn Nature, You Scary" size.

Someone should make a restaurant based around cloning and eating extinct species once this tech gets cheap enough.

Serious post time:

Having extinct animals roaming around would be SO ******* COOL, but we've gotta think about what we would do with them if we had them. Keep them in zoos? Eat them? Domesticate them? We might be able to release animals like warrahs, thlyacacines or quaggas, but what about dodos who wouldn't be able to survive cats and rats brought by man? What about passengers pigeons that would just **** everywhere? There's some talk of using extinct Ice Age animals like mammoths and elasmotheriums to "terraform" areas in Russia to resemble Ice Age grasslands by breaking down forests and spreading grass seeds, but is it a good idea? There's also the question of whether or not they would act or even look like the originals. If it walks like a velociraptor and sounds like a velociraptor but acts like a hand-raised wolf, is it really a velociraptor? And, dear god, what if one of those animals escaped? Do we really want a sabretoothed cat roaming a city? (Although the mental image I just had of a sabretoothed cat in an abandoned city was too badass for words)

IMHO, I think we should concentrate more on collecting the DNA of critically-endangered-but-still-living animals, in the event we can breed a bunch and reintroduce them into their environments should they become extinct.

tl;dr Bringing back beasties is debatable.

Dont worry, not enough oxygen for the dinosaurs to live anyway
User avatar #137 to #129 - drunkasaurus ONLINE (09/26/2013) [-]
they just wouldn't grow to be as big. Some scientists bred ants or some other insect, can't remember, in an oxygen rich cage and the ants were like 20X their normal size

Seems like the species in question is a frog that went extinct just 30 years ago, and they had some frozen ones. Dinosaurs probably still aren't possible. We're safe...for now.
