A number of scientists gathered recently to discuss the possibility of 'de-extincting' 24 animals. They chose these animals based on a criteria.

According to TheJournal.ie,

They chose the animals using the following criteria: Are the species desirable – do they hold an important ecological function or are they beloved by humans? Are the species practical choices – do we have access to tissue that could give us good quality DNA samples or germ cells to reproduce the species? And are they able to be reintroduced into the world – are the habitats in which they live available and do we know why they went extinct in the first place?

No, dinosaurs will not be making a comeback. Imagine having to worry about possibly hitting a wild velociraptor on New Jersey back roads late at night? Here are some of the animals these scientists decided could be worth bring back from extinction:
