Some thoughts:
I have generally not included creatures listed as "Giant Animal type X" (Giant Fish, Giant Weasel, Giant Shrew etc) to the list. There are also many other creatures that could be appropriate for the setting. The ones I have added have been those specifically mentioned as Lost World creatures. I also included the Giant Elk because the entry says they are preyed upon by Sabre-Tooth Tigers.

Do you think other creatures should be included?

Do other BECMI etc sources include other types of Dinosaurs or prehistoric creatures?

What Dinosaurs and Megafauna has appeared in later editions that was never available in BECMI or OD&D?
