There are 90 Dinosaurs, including 28 hybrids, in the game. They are divided into 4 classes: Carnivores, Herbivores, Pterosaurs, and Amphibians. Despite their class falling under dinosaurs, neither the Pterosaurs or Amphibians are truly dinosaurs.
Dinosaurs need food and DNA to level up, and they produce coins that you can collect over time. You need a total 8 dinosaurs to make a level 40 since each upgrade requires two dinosaurs of the same upgrade stage (i.e. two level 10s combine for a level 11-20 creature). Hybrids need two level 40 dinosaurs to create and are the most powerful dinosaurs in the game. A pen can hold up to twelve dinosaurs.

Dinosaurs are very important in this game for many reasons. Use them wisely in a battle to help yourself to win. Take advantage of the classes when fighting an opponent and make your decisions wisely when attempting to predict your enemy. For example, when you know that your enemy is going defensive, you should go full on reserve if you are sure he won't attack.
