Zoo Tycoon: Dinosaur Digs is a expansion pack for Zoo Tycoon. It was released in May 19, 2002. This was the first expansion pack for Zoo Tycoon. It was later followed by Marine Mania. It was eventually bundled with Marine Mania called Zoo Tycoon: Complete Collection.
Dinosaur Digs adds 26 new prehistoric animals and 1 mythical animal to adopt.
The larger carnivores will ram down any non-electric fence, and a damaged electric fence will also be destroyed. A way to bypass this and use cheaper fencing is to surround an exhibit with water, although it will not work for ones that swim. The escaped dinosaurs will eat guests. This expansion pack is known for the animals' very strange behavior, such as carnivores attacking anything in sight and herbivores seeing any modern-day animals as a threat and killing them. As such, this expansion seems to follow the stereotype that dinosaurs are bloodthirsty monsters, while expansions for Zoo Tycoon 2 offer a more accurate portrayal of dinosaurs.
