This expansion to Zoo Tycoon, the zoo management game, allows you to maintain a zoo full of dinosaurs. 20 different dinos can be added to your zoo, including the T-Rex and the Velociraptor plus creatures from the Ice Age, such as the Sabertooth Tiger and the Wooly Mammoth.

To help contain the new 'giant' creatures, new park features allow you to build bigger and stronger cages. Use electric fences to hold the dino's inside (just pray no-one turns out the lights) while, to attract people to your zoo, you can build around the cages to create a Dinosaur like environment, with Volcanoes and tall grass/ice terrain to help make the creatures feel more at home. You can also build normal structures for the usual zoo animals (Elephant, monkey, etc.) to create the ultimate animal parade.

Six scenarios are also included, allowing you to take on a task of keeping the budget in check, taking good care of the employees and feed the hungry Dino's and other animals while paying for expenses.
