    A food chain usually has three levels, the producers, primary consumers, and the secondary consumers. During the Mesozoic Era, many trees and ferns were producers, and herbivores like the Ankylosaurus were primary consumers. This meant that the primary consumers devoured the producers. Then, the secondary consumers consisted of carnivores such as the Spinosaurus. These secondary consumers ate the primary consumers. Today, the producers would be regular plants, the primary consumers would be animals like deer, and the secondary consumers like lions. However, if we add dinosaurs into the mix, this would cause a big disaster in the food chain. The herbivore dinosaurs would start devouring the florae uncontrollably. Secondly, the carnivore dinosaurs' main source of food will be present day animals, not the other dinosaurs. This would place these creatures at the top of the food chain.

First we try to kill the environment and then try to fix it? Suppose the Tyrannosaurus Rex does come back, where are we going to put…
