Dinosaurs feature prominently in multiple Zoo Tycoon expansions.

Large prehistoric reptile-like creatures that did not live in water and did not fly (except for birds). The group Dinosauria did not include early reptiles such as Dimetrodon, the various plesiosaurs and ichthyosaurs, pterosaurus etc. The carnivorous dinosaurs are unique as the only animals in Zoo Tycoon and Zoo Tycoon 2, with the exception of some marine predators such as the great white shark and the sperm whale, to actually KILL guests. Most animals just pick guests up by their pants and shake them around, or gore them with a tusk or horn, but dinosaurs actually eat guests (only adult male guests, however, and not women or children, likely for user-friendly reasons).
