I guess flying and swimming too.
Say you were given the option...
DPS: Raptor form. Claws and teeth everywhere!
Travel: Zhevra. Does this need an explanation?
Water: Whale Shark. Because really, water travel is slow already.
Healing: Marsh Walker. All those crazy arms healing things? Yes.
Flight: Pterrowing Skyscreamer. Make them tremble below my shadow!
Flight=Bat (I think they are cool looking)
<---newest Druid started yesterday afternoon..
<---Mah hair, where is it???
Balance- Moonkin. I just want the model updated.
Aquatic- Angler Fish (the one with the lightbulb and giant teeth). Or a whale shark the size of the boss in Vash'jir. I was sorely disappointed with the size of the orca model.
Melee, Felidae are already pretty awesome, but a raptor would be fun. Wolves could work (especially for Worgen with the whole Goldrinn storyline in their starting area), if they weren't already so associated with shaman in the WoW universe.
Aquatic, we already have orca, what could improve on that? Maybe a sea serpent or the Loch Ness Monster things? Sea otter would be cute, but I think I'd go for awesome over cute.
Flight, I like the owl suggestion, pterodactyl might be cool too (although technically, it is not a dinosaur). Or give everyone the option to choose between bat and bird, rather than assigning them based on race.
Travel, the deer form is nice, but it sometimes bothers me that female druids don't get a doe. Lots of our shapeshift forms reasonably have no sexual dimorphism, but antlers are just silly. Zebra or gazelle could also work, without even requiring any additional model design on the devs' part. Mostly I just wish they'd let it speed up to actual mount speed when not in combat.
Balance and resto -- I like casting in humanoid form. I'd say I was glad for glyph of stars, except that I'm honestly not that interested in balance anyway (if they ever give us 3 spec slots I'd be guardian/feral/resto again).
Unless it was Keeper/Dryad form, then I'd at least be tempted.
Feral: Pig.......no reason for it, just would like to kill !@#$ as a pig
Boomkin: Camel, I shall spit on my foes with great malice!
Resto: Pregnant cat, for the healing powers of 10 kittens!
Flight: Flying squirrel (Not the animal with flaps of skin used as "wings" to glide downwards, I'm talking squirrel with a jetpack)
Swimming: David Hasselhoff
Aquatic Form becomes Mosasaur*/Thresher*
Bear Form becomes Direhorn.
Cat Form becomes Raptor/Devilsaur.
Swift Flight Form becomes Pterrowing Skyscreamer*/Pterrodax*
Travel Form can stay as the elk/moose/whatever it is, if only because I can't think of anything to replace it with.
Moonkin Form becomes Saurok
*: Mosasaurs, plesiosaurs, and pterodactyls were NOT dinosaurs; they were reptiles, which is considered a separate animal group from dinosaurs. However, there were no flying or swimming dinosaurs, so these were the best options. /themoreyouknow
