Green Dinos, or Parasaurolophus cyrtocristatus, were one of the first creatures released on Dragon Cave during its inception on May 21, 2006.

Dinos are "non-dragon" creatures which do not have genders, and therefore cannot be bred. They also cannot be revived if killed. They come in 5 colors: Green, Red, Blue, Yellow and Purple.

Adult Dinos were originally all male. Female Dinos appeared for a period before all Dinos stopped displaying any gender. Even when Dinos were gendered, they were not able to breed. The current sprites are inspired by Yoshi, which was used as the Dinos' original sprites before the Replacement Project. This has resulted in the Dinos featuring a more cartoonish style than regular dragons.

Official descriptions[]

Egg[]

This egg looks like it doesn't belong; it is brightly colored with white spots.

Hatchling[]

You were right, it’s not the same species as the other eggs. So if it’s not a dragon, what is it?

Mature hatchling[]

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.

Adult[]

Finally, after much feeding, the 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.

Trivia[]

  • 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.
  • Under legacy breed sort, these creatures sort as "Yoshi Green" on a user's scroll.
