How to Name a Dinosaur

It's fairly simple to name a dinosaur, all you need to do is follow the basic steps that we have laid out below:

  • Have the dinosaur in your park and make sure it is comfortable/happy. This should be your priority before you decide to name it.
  • Click on the dinosaur that you want to name and a side menu should appear on the left-hand side of your screen. It should look like this:

Their current name will be right at the top of the menu
  • When you are here, look at the bottom of your screen and you should see a few control prompts. Next to one of these prompts, you should see "Rename". This is the control you want.
  • Click or activate this control and you should be given the chance to type in a brand new name for the dinosaur. All you need to do is elect enter/save once you've put the name in and it will automatically apply to your dinosaur.
  • If you want to check if the rename was successful, you can hover over the dinosaur or click on the dinosaur to see its name.
