Green Dinos, or Parasaurolophus cyrtocristatus, are an original species on the site as well as being among the first creatures ever released on Dragon Cave during its inception on May 21, 2006. Dinos are a special release of creatures as opposed to the traditional dragons found on the site; they do not possess genders and cannot breed. They also cannot be revived if killed.
Adult Dinos used to originally possess genders, with all of them gendering male (and later female, shortly before the change to remove genders entirely). Despite having genders though, they still could not breed. The current sprites were based loosely on the sprites of Yoshi, which were the Dinos' original sprites before the Great Fog. It is because of this that they have a different art direction than the rest of the dragons on-site, opting for a more light-hearted and cartoonish style. Another theory for this art direction however, is that they're not considered entirely serious in terms of the game's lore, and are seen as more of an on-site joke like the Chickens.
Under the old Breed sort, these creatures sorted as "Yoshi Green" on a user's scroll. As of August 14, 2016, they now sort using their Encyclopedia name with other non-dragons at the bottom of users' scrolls.
Official Creature DescriptionsEdit
"This egg looks like it doesn't belong; it is brightly colored with white spots."
"You were right, it's not the same species as the other eggs. So if it's not a dragon, what is it?"
"You were right, it's not the same species as the other eggs. So if it's not a dragon, what is it?
And look, it's gotten bigger! Maybe it will reach its full size soon."
"Finally, after much feeding, your baby has grown into a full Dino! Dinos can eat almost anything, including things with spikes. In order to do so, they must have very tough stomachs. Green Dinos are the only type of Dino that is able to walk on two legs. This frees up their front two legs, which they use to catch and eat fish."
|No gender, can't breed.|

There are no notes available for this breed. Check back later; new information will be added periodically.
- The original sprites for Dinos didn't have a differing sprite for hatchling and mature hatchlings, much like the Chicken still has today.
- Despite being based off of a herbivorous ornithopod, its description says it eats fish.
