Ghosts are not dead people (or pets); they are demons trying to fool people by acting like people and/or pets.
Just the fact that you said that, I know you do not know. Why is it that so many feel that they must pull the demon card to discourage people from contemplating about this subject, when they evidently have no experience with it? Perhaps you could elaborate on why you are convinced that ghosts are demons?

Ghosts are not dead people (or pets); they are demons trying to fool people by acting like people and/or pets. Hence, no dinosaurs. Who would want to see a dinosaur ghost, after all? It wouldn't fit what people expect, so it isn't done.

The only logical explanation is here is no ghost and our mind plays tricks on an unknown phenomenon by using our recent memory.
Sort of like we see shapes clouds that are of known creatures.

The entire 'ghost' phenomenon is a vestigial danger signaling system evolved by mammals.
When Og was about to be eaten by a sabertooth, he emitted persistent pheromonal signals that tag the location as being dangerous. When his buddies come down the path later, a few molecules of Og Died Here Badly are picked up by their vomero-nasal organs and stimulate the memory into producing phantom visions and sensations of terror.
This is why you see them outside around concentrations of dead people (cemetaries) or in houses where the people were nuts or evil or something bad happened, because it's a closed environment and it doesn't take mass quantities of signaling pheromone.
Eventually, the signal fades. And reptiles don't produce it. So you see Fluffy, and your cat "sees" the dead people in the house, but you don't see old T-rexes.

There are entire sections of our cities with homes now on land that used to be nothing but slaughterhouses, so why don't they ever have any ghost sightings of cows walking through their bedrooms?

A ghost is a product of the mind. Since dinosaurs haven't been experienced then there is no visualization by the mind.
