What is it about dinosaurs that’s so awesome? We can’t get enough of them – on TV and film screens, in the toy shops, even on children’s birthday cakes. In fact, the best source of dino knowledge I have is my young boy, who is no taller than a coelophysis but can pronounce and spell the longest dinosaur name there is (it’s Micropachycephalosaurus, by the way. Knock yourself out!)
With every new fossil that’s uncovered, we understand more about these phenomenal creatures and the devastating circumstances that led to their extinction. But could we bring them back – and should we?
