    Do you think the dinosaurs could have survived....

    .. if they had built underground bunkers, stored dried food and had plenty of ammo?

    Yes I do believe that they did.  They found that fish that they thought was extinct.  There are other animals they thought was extinct that they have found.  There are caverns under the earth so deep and vast that people in China have lived in for years.  We are just finding out about them.  We have not seen everything under the waters on top of this earth and we certainly have obscured and hidden many things through government cover-ups.  We know very little of the planet that we live on.

    From what I remember in Biology class the insane lack of food created by the asteroid's effect on the environment was what killed them. Dinosaurs had gotten so freaking big due to lack of competition for food (they were fierce and stuff) so they needed way more food than what was simply left on Earth's surface. Tiny, wimpy little mouse like mammals, though? They did just fine.

    I totally just became that one guy who ruins the joke, didn't I....

      Not really. It was a perfectly fine answer. Just a silly thought that came to me, and I needed to share it.

    If they could have they would have. The first law of nature is "self-preservation".
    Long ago I had an instructor state: "Intelligence is the ability of an organism to (adapt) to it's environment." My guess is the dinosaurs did everything they could to survive as species.
    It is believed crocodiles are the ultimate survivors. Having arisen some 200 million years ago, they have outlived the dinosaurs by some 65 million years. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/nature/ext … crocs.html

    Uh...no.

    The reason: No matter how "prepped" any "Prepper" is, one can store only a finite supply of needed survival goods and it is unlikely---even if one is/was a dinosaur that would could store a supply sufficient to guarantee survival of a species in the wake of a catastrophic environmental event.

    Theories say that dinosaurs became extinct during the Ice Age when food went scare and weather conditions were fierce. If dinosaurs had enough intelligence to stack away food, they would have done so and maybe they could have survived.
    For all we know, dinosaurs d-evolved into smaller reptiles over million of years to adapt better to the changing environment on our planet.. Do you find an uncanny resemblance between the dinos and the crocodiles. If apes can evolve into humans, I wouldn't be so surprised if dinos too had a similar fate. Only their intelligence didn't improve with evolution smile

      Nothing "d-evolved", rather things continued to evolve from species that survived the catastrophic event that killed the dinosaurs. Among these were [already] small mammals and non-mammals.

      Dinosaurs---extinct, dead. They did not evolve post-death.
