Forget T-Rex and his kind; when I was little I always wanted a Trilobite for a pet, and creationist windbag Kent Hovind
says that I can have one! Yay! No, wait—they really are extinct
. Wah! I want my Trilobite! (Lest you think that Hovind is on my side here, when I was young I also always wanted a Homo habilis
for a friend. I wonder what Hovie would think of that
UPDATED: It turns out that another of my favorite species, the woolly mammoth
, may not have been hunted to extinction as previously thought. Actually, it and the wild horse probably slowly died out as a result of global climate change.
