All of the dinosaurs in Jurassic World Evolution and how to get them


There's a large amount of dinosaurs that you can unlock and add to your very own Jurassic Park in Jurassic World Evolution.

But how do you find these fossils? And which dinosaurs are available? Here's everything you need to know about the dinosaurs and fossils in Jurassic World Evolution.
