After reading Extinct animals, I thought it would be interesting to add this topic to the forum. Although, I am unsure if I should simply add this to my previous topic of If you could be any organism besides a human, what would it be?
Anyway, if I had to choose to be an extinct organism, I would be any member of the genus Anomalocaris. Why?
But to get back to the original question, my favorite extinct organism would be Anomalocaris. I mean, when was the last time a giant shrimp was the apex predator of the ocean?
