Jurassic World Evolution 2 Dinosaur Types & Species Guide

If you want to build the best parks, you need to understand dinosaur species. This Jurassic World Evolution 2 Dinosaur Types Guide will explain all the different definitions of the species of dinosaur so you can better understand what species belongs with what species.

When you inspect dinosaurs in Jurassic World Evolution 2 you can check which dinosaurs they can best cohabitate with (check out our Cohabitation guide for more info). However, this will often confuse you as it generally mixes the actual names of dinosaurs with the species of dinosaurs.

For example, when you inspect a Triceratops it will tell you that it likes Compsognathus and Anklyosaurid but dislikes Carnivores, Ceratopsid and Stegosaurid, which combines both the names of some dinosaurs in the game and different species of dinosaur.
