Dinosaur List

There are three types of dinosaurs that you can get in the game, Herbivores, Piscivores, and Carnivores. We've listed all of the dinosaurs that are confirmed to be in the game and which section they belong to.

Herbivore

Herbivores are dinosaurs that will only eat plant life and vegetation in their surrounding environment. This means that they will not eat you on purpose but their size and nature can still make them a threat.

Nasutoceratops

Genus: Cerapod/Ceratopsian
Era: Cretaceous

Nasutoceratops can be mistaken for Triceratops and though they are from the same family, they are different dinosaurs. Naustoceratops has two horns that sit quite low down on its head which makes it easy to distinguish from other Cerapods. It's also easy to identify because of its distinctly rounded snout.

Triceratops

Genus: Cerapod/Ceratopsid
Era: Cretaceous

As possibly one of the most recognisable dinosaur species known to humanity, Triceratops are thought to be one of the larger Cerapods. Its diet consists of plantlife and though it's believed they fed mainly on ground vegetation, it is possible that they could knock over trees to eat the foliage on them.

Chasmosaurus

Genus: Cerapod/Ceratopsid
Era: Cretaceous

The large formation on the top of the head of a Chasmosaurus is known as the "Frill" and it is believed that it was used to communicate or attract mates. As with all Ceratopsid dinosaurs, Chasmosaurus had a beak that helped them to tear up the grass and eat various ground vegetation.

Torosaurus

Genus: Cerapod/Ceratopsid
Era: Cretaceous

The crest on the head of a Torosaurus is believed to be the largest of any known Ceratopsid dinosaur. They would have lived in quite large social groups and the crest may have been used for display purposes. Also, Torosaurus had the signature beak of all Ceratopsid dinosaurs.

Brachiosaurus

Genus: Saurapod
Era: Jurassic

Brachiosaurus is believed to be one of the tallest and largest dinosaurs that walked the earth. Their gargantuan size gave them a survival advantage as carnivorous predators would avoid attacking them. A unique feature of this dinosaur is that its forearms are longer than its rear legs which is uncommon in other Saurapods.

Genus: Saurapod
Era: Cretaceous

Amargasaurus, though on the smaller side of Saurapods, is still an impressive dinosaur. It has spikes on the back of its neck which it uses to protect itself from potential predators and it has sharp teeth which allow it to eat tough vegetation that others cannot eat.

Stegosaurus

Genus: Stegosauria
Era: Jurassic

Another one of the easiest dinosaurs to recognise is the Stegosaurus. Its spiny plates down the length of its back give the dinosaur its distinctive look but you need to steer clear of its tail! This dinosaur has long spikes at the tip of its tail to defend itself from predators.

Parasaurolophus

Genus: Hadrosaurus
Era: Cretaceous

A Parasaurolophus walks on 4 legs but if it needs to reach food, it can use only its rear 2 legs. This dinosaur is easy to spot thanks to the crest that adorns its head. It has been speculated that this crest is a form of communication between their species or a way to attract a mate.

Ankylosaurus

Genus: Ankylosaurid
Era: Cretaceous

Ankylosaurus dinosaurs are easy to identify due to the large club-like formation on their tails which are believed to have been used to defend them against predators. As herbivores, the Ankylosaur had interesting mouths as they had a beak at the front and blunt teeth near the back. Both of these features would have been perfect for eating vegetation.

Piscivore

Piscivores are dinosaurs that primarily eat fish but if it comes down to it, they can eat other things too.

Pteranodon

Genus: Theropod
Era: Cretaceous

A Pteranodon may look dangerous but you only need to be concerned if you're a fish. The dinosaur's long pointed beak is more interesting than it looks as a Pteranodon does not have any teeth. Instead, it uses its beach to chew up food to help it to eat.

Baryonyx

Genus: Theropod
Era: Cretaceous

If you look carefully at a Baryonyx, without getting bitten, you will see that its skull and mouth look a lot like a modern Crocodile. Its long claws allow it to grab prey, mainly fish, from the riverbank or by standing in bodies of water. However, if it becomes hard to find food then Baryonyx can switch to being a scavenger.

Dimorphodon

Genus: Pterosaur
Era: Jurassic

Dimorphodon may have wings but it's not the best at flying. Its short wingspan means that it cannot fly for long periods of time. If it needs to get anywhere, it will do short bursts of flight to get there. A Diomorphodon also has two sets of teeth which are bad news if you have gills.

Tropeognathus

Genus: Pterosaur
Era: Cretaceous

Tropeognathus had long snouts that had a distinctive bump/crest on the tip. This pterosaur had a wingspan that's believed to be slightly bigger than others of the same genus. Tropeognathus ate mainly fish and its long snout made it easy for this dinosaur to pick its prey out of the water.

Mosasaurus

Genus: Mosasaurs
Era: Cretaceous

A Mosasaurus is an aquatic dinosaur which means that you will need to have a large underwater enclosure should you want this dinosaur. It's an excellent predator as it has great vision and powerful fins that can propel it out of the water to get its prey. Mosasaurus can eat fish or other aquatic creatures.

Plesiosaurus

Genus: Sauropterygian
Era: Jurassic

Plesiosaurs may look elegant as they use their fins to glide through the water but they are still an incredible hunter. Its long neck means that it can reach its prey from a distance and its powerful fins can effortlessly propel it through the water.

Spinosaurus

Genus: Spinosaurid/Theropod
Era: Cretaceous

Spinosaurus dinosaurs are easily identifiable thanks to the giant fan-like part on their back. Like many Theropods, the Spinosaurus had a lot of teeth that were designed to make a quick meal out of its prey. There have been debates about whether or not the Spinosaur was a piscivore or carnivore but most of the facts point towards the dinosaur being a talented piscivore.

Carnivore

Carnivores are dinosaurs that eat meat and meat only. There were multiple types of these dinosaurs but all of them were ferocious and deadly.

Carnotaurus

A Carnotaurus has distinctive spikes sitting above each eye and a very big mouth. In its mouth, there are two sets of teeth that are perfectly designed to tear apart its prey. What makes this dinosaur even more interesting is that it had smaller forearms than a T-Rex!

Allosaurus

Genus: Theropod
Era: Jurassic

Allosaurus is another dinosaur with a big mouth with teeth that were perfectly suited to tearing apart its prey. This dinosaur has small bumps above each eye and quite long forearms. The long tail of an Allosaurus helped the dinosaur to keep its balance as it raced after its prey, making it a dangerous predator.

Coelophysis

Genus: Theropod
Era: Triassic

Coelophysis may be one of the smaller Theropods but it was still a deadly predator. This dinosaur could race after its prey at immense speeds due to the fact that it had hollow bones. A Coelophysis was a bi-ped which means it only used its two rear legs to move. At the bottom of its legs, the dinosaur had sharp claws that it used to dig into its prey.

Tyrannosaurus Rex

Genus: Theropod
Era: Cretaceous

As easily the most famous dinosaur in the world, the Tyrannosaurus Rex is thought to be the king of all dinosaurs. Its immensely powerful jaw and large serrated teeth made it a menace to any dinosaur it set its eyes and stomach on. Also, the massive size of a Tyrannosaurus Rex helped it to become one of the most, if not the most, dangerous dinosaurs to have walked the earth.

Cryolophosaurus

Genus: Theropod

A Cryolophosaurus was the apex predator of its home which we now know to be Antarctica. If the name doesn't sound familiar then you may know it by its other name "Elvisaurus". This name was given to the dinosaur because of the crest on its head that is thought to look like the hairstyle of a famous singer. Also, it's believed to be one of the biggest Theropods of the Jurassic period.

Velociraptor

Genus: Theropod
Era: Cretaceous

Another dinosaur that is easy to recognise and is feared by many. The Velociraptor is a pack hunter and is known to potentially have been one of the smartest dinosaurs in the world. Even if this dinosaur was alone, it was still deadly. They were fast, intelligent and they had sets of claws that were sharp and powerful enough to dig into the flesh of anything unfortunate enough to be their prey.

Genus: Theropod/Tyrannosaurid
Era: Cretaceous

In terms of dinosaur discoveries, Qianzhousaurus is still relatively new as its fossil was unearthed in 2010. This dinosaur had a longer snout than other Tyrannosaurids and the teeth were distinctly smaller and narrower. That being said, it's still thought to have been a powerful predator

Metriacanthosaurus

Genus: Theropod
Era: Jurassic

Metriacanthosaurus was a dinosaur that had been discovered by only a few pieces of its skull. This means that any reanimation or reconstruction of the dinosaur has been made from what we know about other dinosaurs of a similar species and age. Like many Theropod dinosaurs, it has small arms and relies on its powerful hind legs to chase after its prey.

Genus: Theropod
Era: Cretaceous

Troodon were small Theropod dinosaurs but they still had the small arms and powerful back legs of any Theropod. Some scientists believe that the brain of a Troodon would have been quite large when compared to the other dinosaurs of the same size. This would have made it a very clever dinosaur. In the game, Troodon are happiest with a few of their own kind.

We will update this list as we uncover more dinosaurs in the game.
