http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zaglossus_hacketti perhaps the recurrence of large echidna again? Is it possible for echidna to use their long tongues for catching fish, or is that WAYYY out of the question?
it's quite possible. In fact, it's quite probable that a giant echidna would use it's tongue to catch fish, or get a longer, beaked muzzle for that purpose.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life," John 3:16

"99 little bugs in the code,
99 little bugs in the code,
take one down patch it around,
117 little bugs in the code,"

I think this describes what dinosaurs are like now

There aren't any coursing predators in the African savannah currently. I'd like to create one.

Also, can we attempt to argue that a species that has been stated to be extinct shouldn't be extinct? Because if humans vanished at about now, I think I could make an excellent case for cheetahs in desert regions, descended from a small population in the Sahara desert (or, for that matter, descended from a population in Namibia; where if we vanished their populations would explode). They don't really have any competition.

They aren't big cats, either, they're a distinct lineage and they can't roar. And elimination of other big cats would work tremendously in their favor.
