Jurassic World Evolution 2: How To Sell Fossils

You may need more money or you may not need the fossils you have in Jurassic World Evolution 2. Whatever your reason may be, we're going to show you how to sell fossils. We're also going to show you how to get fossils and explain what fossils are in the game.

How To Sell Fossils

Selling some fossils can be an easy way to make a lot of money in a short space of time. This is how you can sell your fossils:

  • Have a science center - you cannot hold or sell fossils without one.
  • When your expedition team returns with fossils, there will be a little dinosaur skull icon above the science center.
  • Click on the science center or click on the dinosaur symbol with a DNA strand on your management menu to view fossils.
  • Only some fossils can be sold.
  • The fossils you can sell will have a "cash value" estimate underneath their photo on the right-hand side of your screen.

  • You will need to assign a scientist or scientists to the fossil as it needs to be extracted.
  • Each fossil has its own requirements that you need to meet before you can extract it. You can see this by looking at the little gear icon under the photo of the fossil.
  • Once you have filled or overfilled the scientist requirement, click "start task".
  • After the scientists have extracted the fossil it will automatically be sold. The money will go directly into your park funds in the bottom right of your screen.

How To Get Fossils

To get fossils, you will need an expedition team and a minimum of 2 scientists (this is the average amount of scientists it will take to fill expedition requirements). Expedition teams can be sent to various dig sites all over the world. If you click on the expedition team building or head to the world icon in your management menu, you will be able to see all of the dig sites.

Each expedition to a dig site can offer you a different genome for a different dinosaur. If you hover over an available dig site, it should tell you which genome you may get from it. Once you have found a dig site you like, you will need to assign some scientists to it. The requirements for dig sites are often quite high which is why it's a good idea to have 2 or more scientists employed at the park. Once you've assigned scientists to the site that fill or overfill the requirements you will need to wait for them to return but they will bring back genome data and fossils.

What Are Fossils?

Fossils are the preserved remains of dead dinosaurs. In the game, fossils from dig sites can hold valuable genome data of various dinosaurs. You can then use this genome data to increase your overall knowledge of the genetics of a dinosaur. This will then mean that you can increase your chances of re-creating the dinosaur in an incubation hatchery. The more genome data you have from fossils, the more likely it is your dinosaur creations will succeed. Also, you can sell some fossils for a very high price if they do not carry any data.

Fossils are just one of many little details in Jurassic World Evolution 2. There are multiple layers of dinosaur and business management that you need to master in the game. We have some guides that can help you out, including one on how to increase asset rating and another on how to sell a dinosaur.
