Slaxl: I would like to be there when the first hominid capable of thought and speech came across some form of exposed dinosaur skull. I'd also like to have some form of hominid->English translator, so I can know what they're saying.

Of course I might end up saying "It's a dragon", and thus set in motion everything that got to this point. The perils of time travel...


Or, you might turn out to be your own grandpa....

They would sound more convincing if they were specific about the kinds of dragons they had hanging around back then -- Hungarian Horntails or perhaps a herd of Common Welsh Green...

At least Harry Potter readers know what they are reading is fantasy.

So what's the deal here, are you just supposed to imagine dragons?

People before about 1796 considered extinction an impossibility, since it meant that the earth was not created in its final form, but was changing over time. So, when they found remains of unknown animals or animals that no longer existed, they assumed that they were unusual rock formations. Shark's teeth are one example of this. Once Cuvier made a convincing argument that some ancient animals had gone extinct, it led to a boom in archaeological activity and understanding.
