My favourite prehistoric reptiles in no discernible order: Acrocanthosaurus (well, this is my all-time favourite), Baryonyx, Sphenacodon, Shonisaurus, all kinds of pliosaurs (right now Megalneusaurus comes to my mind), all kinds of mosasaurs (Prognathodon is one of my favourites) Carnotaurus, Giganotosaurus, Megalosaurus, Edmontonia.
I like all prehistoric creatures, but here are my faves: 10. Allosaurus - top predator on THREE continents at the same time 9. Carcharodontosaurus - that thing just looks so badass 8. Megalosaurus - another badass 7. Camarasaurus - thanks to my new Carnegie model 6. Rutiodon - yet more badassery 5. Bactrosaurus - my results in the "What dinosaur are you?" thread 4. Brachypodosaurus - I like Indian dinosaurs 3. Therizinosaurus - it looks so peaceful, yet so dangerous 2. Megaraptor - have you seen the hands on that beast? Just pure ownage 1. Deltadromeus - first dinosaur fossil I owned
Unlucky to miss out were: Utahraptor Pteranodon Stegosaurus Tyrannosaurus Saurosuchus Erythrosuchus Hatzegopteryx Temnodontosaurus Lourinhanosaurus Miragaia Siamotyrannus Koreaceratops Torvosaurus Gallimimus Argentinosaurus and Saurolophus. All those guys could've taken 10th spot.

Triceratops (and then the other ceratopsids) Pacycephalosaurus Dracorex Archaeopteryx Dilophosaurus Gorgonopsids Struthiomimus Dimoprhodon Quetzalcoatlus Tsintaosaurus Placodus (looks like a gigantic newt-walrus who likes shellfish! Whats not to love? )
I love all of them really but I suppose those are the ones that stick out in my heart the most.

As a kid and to this day I have always loved Big al. Allosaurus and its Kin especially acrocantosaurus. Deinonychus Daspleatosaurus my favorite Tyrannosaur. Its rex but more athletic. Camarasaurus and Apatosaurus there is a story behind these guys. Many of you probably know it. Stygimoloch if you still exist.... styracosaurus lambeosaurus ankylosaurus but it turns out Euoplocephalus and SAICHANIA were depicted instead so I prefer them to old anky. sorry anky. Baryonx It was discovered in 1983 year year I was born.
and the coolest one of all which was depicted as a murder machine in many books but likely was a herbivore the enigmatic Deinocheirus!! I love Therizinosaurus too butI will never forget seeing those massive arms when I was a kin at the AMNH in New york.
Well, you can probably guess what my favourite is. My top ten: 1. Neovenator - Well, I live on the Isle of Wight where the fossils were found, and have seen them at a dinosaur museum over here, so I have a special connection with it. 2. Nuthetes - it's a dubious genus, but I love dromeosaurs and an English one is such a cool thought, I had to include it. If it doesn't count, any other dromeosaur (can I say raptor or is that too informal?) would go here instead. 3. Spinosaurus - any spinosaurid would go here, really. Much better than T. Rex. 4. Giganotosaurus - Again, this is like T. Rex but twice as good! 5. Kaprosuchus or Postosuchus - both big crocodilian predators, and Kaprosuchus was awesome in Primeval! 6. Liopleurodon - Wasn't this the biggest carnivorus animal to ever live on the Earth? Deserves a mention here. 7. Deinosuchus - Imagine if these were still alive today! 8. Oviraptor - Unfortunate name but cool dinosaur. 9. Brachiosaurus - Time to feature a herbivore, and once again, I saw a fossil of it (was fairly complete) on the Island. 10. Wuerhosaurus - Just personal preferance, but I like it more than any other stegosaur
