Why not? Consider

I saw something about possible mammoth cloning, and they said they could take the mammoth DNA and implant it into an elephant egg, then fertilize it with elephant sperm and have an elephant birth it. It would only be half mammoth. If they could do it with a dino, probably be half dino half bird or half dino half crocodile.

That's interesting, but not what I read in the earlier post.

These things were really some kind of bird. We need a new Jurassic movie that reflects this.

Why would a pteradon want to turn people into dinosaurs?

LDH was right. The DNA strand would never be a full Dino. It would always have elements of what the chicken or croc, what ever they used to fertilize the DNA. It may look the part but it will always carry the trades of the host.

DNA ain't all it takes. AFAICT and I'm no expert you need at least an egg in addition to the DNA. To get an approximation t an egg you can replace the DNA in the nucleus with the DNA from the animal you're trying to clone. But then you also need to grow the embryo, which means a surrogate mother to carry the foetus, which is why in the case of mammoths they reckon give it a try with an elephant.

Sounds like a prime candidate for an artificial womb.
