    Why wasn't there any marsupils or reptiles in the beast wars? Sure, Dinobots, Terrorsaur and Megatron were dinosaurs but they are ancestors to the birds not reptiles?

    He meant the show.

    I don't know, guess the same reason no real fish were used.

    No real fish was probobly mis-worded, I meant little gold fish, trout things, bass etc., unless you count his gun. That's like saying Quickstrike is a reptile cause his tail's a snake. Depthcharge is a Manta-ray and is not what automatically comes to mind when thinking fish.

    Nightscream, Cybershark, Injector, Slapper, and Sonar are neither marsupials or reptiles, if that's what you mean.

    Also, to add to the list of reptiles: BWNeo Corahda and BM Night Viper.

    For reptiles, I don't think Snapper was mentioned.
    There is also the mutant Soundwave (Alligator form)

    Terrorsaur was a Pteranodon, which was NOT a Dinosaur (even though it lived in the same general 'age') and not related to birds at all.

    As for the why...what do you think kids find more interesting, a lizard or a dinosaur?

    I always wondered why they didn't attempt a Predacon horsefly or cockroach. Then again, I can sort of see why they didn't. :lol

    A marsupial is not a lizard. Just in case anyone's confused.

    And not all dinosaurs were ancestors to the birds! Just the theropods, probably, and even then not all of them.

    I guess they wanted variety. Since they already had a raptor and a TRex, maybe they thought adding a lizard would be too many reptiles. Or maybe doing another lizard vioce might clash with Dinobots personality.
    Since they had so many different animals to choose from, why have 3 reptiles in a cast made of 20 characters or so. Just a guess
