The Irish Elk

I love prehistory – the people, the plants and the animals. When mad scientists finally get an elephant/mammoth hybrid worked out, I’ll be first on the list for getting one. I already have the biome ready. I’m particularly partial to the megafauna of the previous Ice Age.
The Irish Elk is one of my favorites because let’s face it, that was one racked guy. The Columbian Mammoth is my supreme contender for quintessential awesome cold weather beastie, but let’s not forget other interesting fellows like glyptodons and smilodons.
Who’s your favorite prehistoric monster? Why? Where would you keep one?

    Now this is a subject I've never considered! LoL. However, as it would happened I just read a NY Times article about jawless fish, and found the entire topic fascinating. Do they count?Writer Anne Leone's husband is one of the paleobiologists behind the study.http://critically-yours.blogspot.com/2011/07/jawless-fish-held-their-own.html#links
