Article name should be enough explanation: http://www.cracked.com/article_18641_7-terrifying-prehistoric-creatures-that-are-still-around.html

Fun fact: All raptors were covered in feathers or more like ...fur.

Since this thread tends toward the aquatic, here's my submission. Dunkleosteus. The sharks and lizards you could be reasonably assured a torpedo would kill. This thing had an armored head, even if it was only 20 feet long.



Also, like many things on Cracked, that article was retarded. It had a giant rat, and no mention whatsoever of Deinosuchus, the 50 foot dino-eating crocodile.
Megladon still beats it in my opinion. You just can't compete with a 50 foot great white.
Well, yes, the Megladon would devour it whole, but we're talking about how much of a threat it would be to us. I'd rather hunt a Megladon-it's a bigger target, plus you can be pretty sure a big enough explosive could kill it in one shot. With Dunkleosteus, you'd have to reload that cannon. Also, it was this big in a time when everything else wasn't half its size. And it was an ambush predator, lying in the mud until a shadow passed overhead.

That. Also the ironing board shark [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stethacanthus].
Jesus Christ!

Also, "scary extinct fish" turned up this fucker, so I'll throw it into the mix.
AAAaahhhhh! Oh shit! I spilled my apple juice!

... and the most important one, we don't live underwater.

Apple juice is over rated, it always tastes off.

Apple Cider is so much tastier...

A Moa. Giant forest ostritch thing that's really violent. On the other hand, native New Zealanders did hunt them to extinction, so it might not be too bad.

Isn't that shark called a six gill or seven gill shark?

Definitely. I've never gotten people that said water is the best thirst quencher, it's definitely milk.

I only like no-fat, though. The other stuff tastes creamy and thick.

No idea, I'd be too busy pissing myself to count the gills if I ever saw one.

The source website was about various animals, but I couldn't find where they were talking about the shark.

EDIT: It's apparently called a frilled shark. And it isn't extinct. I feel stupid...

How come there is apple juice and cider, but only orange juice and no cider?

Something to do with the way they're made. Apple cider is made at cider mills, with a process that I'm guessing doesn't work on oranges. Or they've made orange cider, and it tastes terrible.

Diseases are more scary than large animals.

Animals are susceptible to bullets. Bullets are cheap.
Diseases not so much. Cures are expensive. And hard to come by.
