I meant that while it is a great scientific breakthrough to clone dinosaurs, who knows what will happen if they got loose

The real threats are Raptors,Rex,Giga,Spino,.... Won't bother to eat us for 2 reasons:
We are so small for them
We smells like mammals of the Mesozoic and they are tiny.

i can find no records of utahraptor, which has records idicating it is the largest dromaeosaurid -'raptor' as you refer to it as - exceeding the size that records indicate large ursus species can reach, and records are available of ursus killing humans
i would conclude that we are more akin to utahraptor prey than we are to ursus prey, thus i would wager that utahraptor would consier us food when un-armed.

i can atest that they are capable of killing humans, prisoners in my 666th castle have experienced this first hand, as they could atest had they not been devoured

If Jack Horner DOES create dinosaurs will you all forgive him for the whole T-rex scavenger thing and the T-rex vs Spinosaurus thing?

Listen, you can't say that. He is a Paleontologist, respected by the scientific community, whilst you are just a Kid. He has a right to think that T-rex is a scavenger and he has evidence for it.

If you want to be a Paleontologist you won't get anywhere if you just insult Him.

Noone wants to hear you cry and b!tch and moan about you're stupid little fantasy and while you snuggle into you're mom you 5 year old! Balaur is a good contributer and he doesn't need you're back mouth! So shut up.

oh this is so funny watching a 10 year old kid throw a hissy fit.
i was not crying, or b1tching, I was simply trolling Balaur as he was stupid enough to bite the trolling bait in my post and completely ignore the rest of the post which was ontopic.

yelling, swearing, insulting and calling people 5 year olds does not make you big and clever, nor does it make you like either of them.
rather, it makes you look like one yourself
just grow up, seriously
We saw this idiot off ages ago
i was about to say ive been here longer than most of you until i saw your location, and general attitude, not sure about you

Aww boohoo, mean old Mr Horner called your beloved Tyrannosaurus a scavenger, didums.
you do realise he retracted that view point, and admited he maintained it just to make the community be more open in their interpreation of evidence, back in 2009?
go cry some more, cry yourself to sleep little boy.
