comment In what language is the oldest available text of Genesis?
You may want to clarify what you mean by "earliest available text." Do you mean the oldest existing manuscript? Or our best reconstruction of the oldest text?

@fdb: Perhaps the question should be clarified to make that point clearer? At any rate the Qumran manuscripts don't have this particular verse.

It might be a little while before I get to put up an answer, but I'm pretty sure the answer given here to Question one is wrong. The oldest extant Greek text of Gen 1:26-27 is much older (500+ years) than the oldest extant Hebrew text. (Of course, the Greek is translated from even earlier Hebrew texts, but none of those are extant.)

comment What biblical figure was present during the dinosaurs?
Crocodiles are not technically dinosaurs (like dinosaurs they're archosaurs, but they're a sister group to dinosaurs), on the other hand birds are technically dinosaurs. The thing the Japanese fishing trawler pulled up was definitely a basking shark, and no one credible believes in the Loch Ness Monster. It's embarrassing to the site that this answer is so highly upvoted.
