Zoo Tycoon 2 - Dino Danger Pack
Zoo Tycoon 2: Dino Danger Pack was an official (not user-made) premium download pack for the game Zoo Tycoon 2 released on July 2006. It could be found at the Zoo Tycoon official website. Although it was downloadable, it costed $4.99 via a credit card. This is similar to the Dinosaur Digs expansion of the first Zoo Tycoon.


This was the first Zoo Tycoon 2 official pack to include dinosaurs. Four were included: two carnivores and two herbivores, all from the Cretaceous period of the Mesozoic era.

The dinosaurs do attack guests, but only grown men and not women or children, likely for user-friendliness concerns. It is interesting to note that Tyrannosaurus rex and Carnotaurus are the only official Zoo Tycoon 2 animals to actualy kill guests when attacking. Their attacks involve eating the guests; although it is interesting that while guests are larger than the normal meat food item, they do not satisfy the dinosaurs' hunger levels. The herbivores, Triceratops and Styracosaurus, do not kill guests, but they do gore them.

Prior to release of Zoo Tycoon 2: Extinct Animals, which has everything Dino Danger Pack has as well as more, the link to download Dino Danger was taken off of the official Zoo Tycoon website and can no longer be found the normal way. However, the webpage that has the download still exists, so those who manage to find the URL will be able to have Dino Danger.

Extinct Animals does override Dino Danger, but EA has updated models and textures for all the content in DD2.


  • "Styracosaurus" and "Carnotaurus" are may be a reference to Disney's Dinosaur.
