Long before humans first walked the globe and man reigned supreme over land, air and sea, Dino Dragons were the dominant species on Earth. Lesser creatures quaked in fear as the mighty Dino Dragons stretched their wings and soared over the puny animals below. No one knows what happened to the Dino Dragons or why their legacy vanished without a trace.
Dino Dragons were thought to be extinct until very recently, when caretakers from your island unearthed a fossilized egg. After research was conducted by top dragon scientists, the egg was identified as the long lost Dino Dragon. Efforts were made immediately to attempt to revive the species, which were thankfully successful.
Scientists feared when Dino Dragons were revived that the once-aggressive alpha dragons would resume their dominant behavioral patterns toward today's more gentle dragons. They were pleased to find that Dino Dragons were quick to adjust to their new surroundings, becoming nurturing yet assertive members of dragon society.
Epic Dino Dragons are the spitting image of some long-extinct species of dinosaurs; it's no surprise some archaeologists mistook Dino Dragon fossils for dinosaurs. Some paleontologists believe that dinosaurs once descended from Dino Dragons, making Dino Dragons a species from which many other animals have sprung from.
By breeding a dragon that provides the Green type with a dragon that provides the Red type. Missing requirements cannot be fulfilled by the splitting of minor types; at least one parent must have the originally required types without splitting.
By breeding two parents that collectively contribute only the Dino and Diamond types.
DISCLAIMER: When attempting to breed the Dino Dragon, you may get other offspring instead. Check the Breeding Calculator to view all of the possible results of combining a particular pair of parents.
The Dino Dragon has special behavior when it is used as a breeding parent. Unlike dragons with only basic types, it will obey the following rules:
When the Dino type is alone in the pool, it will add pure dragons of its component types (Red and Green) to the list of possible outcomes, but it will not split into its component types. When Dino is included in the pool along with one or more other types, the Dino type can split into Red and Green. However, if it is split, then Dino is no longer in the pool for the duration. Thus, the presence of Dino in a pool will either add the Dino type if it does not split or the Red and Green types if it does split. There is one exception to this rule, and that is when both parents possess the Dino type. In this case, Dino can contribute both itself and its split colors at the same time.
Although the Dino type can split into Red and Green for breeding purposes, it still only counts as one type. This is important when considering the number of types for type-amount-dependent dragons such as the Diamond Dragon. Breeding a Dino Dragon with a Coral Dragon only counts as three types: Dino, Blue, and Purple.
The Dino Dragon's design is based upon the Wizard Dragon's, although there are differences between the two.
