Codex Gamicus

Zoo Tycoon 2: Dino Danger Pack was a downloadable bonus pack for the game Zoo Tycoon 2 released on July 2006. It could be downloaded from the Zoo Tycoon website and Oberon Media website for $4.99 via credit card. It has now been replaced by the Extinct Animals expansion pack.


There were four dinosaurs in the pack, all from the Cretaceous period. The carnivores do eat guests, but only adult men and not women or children, most likely for the game to be kid-friendly. Eating guests does not help satisfy hunger levels.

  • Carnotaurus - Boreal Forest
  • Styracosaurus - Tropical Rainforest
  • Triceratops - Boreal Forest
  • Tyrannosaurus Rex - Tropical Rainforest

Since the release of Zoo Tycoon 2: Extinct Animals, which includes more updated versions of all of the animals and items included in the pack, Dino Danger was taken offline from the Zoo Tycoon website and can no longer be downloaded. However, it can still be purchased via URL on the Oberon Media website, even though it is not linked.

Both Zoo Tycoon 2 Extinct Animals, and Dino Danger Pack are included in Zoo Tycoon 2 Ultimate Collection. The pack does conflict with the Extinct Animals versions, but have their models included in addition to the new ones. The Extinct Animals models are the ones used in the game. This can be stopped by going into the Downloads menu and removing the tick next to Updates For Dino Danger.
