    I was just watching a travel program on TV where they were asking kids what their favourite dinosaur is?

    I loved dinosaurs when I was kid. My favourite was the Triceratops.

    What was yours?

    I always loved Brontosauruses. They just seemed so happy, being all tall and munching on their leaves.

    Divided between T REX and raptor. They were merciless!

    The vegetarians! Especially Apatosaurus (formerly known as "Brontosaurus?").

    In terms of fictional dinos - Rex from Toy Story!

    They would eat your poodles.

    I've always been partial to the Stegosaurus.

    Brontosaurus and Brachiosaurus.

    I loved the big, shy, gentle giants.

    Oh, easily the Ankylosaurus. The thought of that spikey behemoth swinging that club tail always intrigued me.

    Velociraptor and Allosaurus. A really cool dinosaur I didn't hear about until a few years ago is Amargasaurus, which definitely would've been a childhood favourite if I'd known about it when I was a kid.

    Parasaurolophus & Argentinosaurus for the veggies and Giganotosaurus for the carnivores.

    I find this topic kinda funny cause my daughter is out in Halifax attending school and one of the "extra" courses she is taking is about dinosaurs. Being the practical joker type of young woman that she is, she created an event on FB where people would say which was their fav dinosaur and why. Considering she doesn't read this board (or likely even know it exists), I find this topic heartwarmingly funny.

    Stegosaurus FTW! In my nursery school, we sang the Stegosaurus song.

    Still my favorite song; one of my best friends has a 2 year old who looooves dinosaurs, and I'm teaching her the song now.

    I had a plastic dinosaur collection I inherited from my brothers. My fave was a tiny sweet green Brontosaurus. Second favorite was a scary Stegosaurus.

    I am partial to the Diplocaulus, which is not technically a dinosaur but a prehistoric amphibian, and not to be confused with Diplodocus, which I guess would somewhat by defauilt be my favorite dinosaur.
