8.0.4 UPDATE

Dryosaurus ('dry-oh-sawr-uss', meaning "Tree/Oak lizard") is a small diurnal (meaning active only during the day) prehistoric creature from the Late Jurassic period. It was added in the 7.3.1 Build, alongside Parasaurolophus and Therizinosaurus. They are around 1.5 blocks tall, and approximately 4 blocks long. There is no size difference between genders, however, scaly males are green with a red throat whilst scaly females are brown-textured. Feathered males have dark blue markings, and are red-brown, while feathered females are a light brown. Newborns are half a block tall, and are fully grown in 5 in minecraft days. They can be given essence of chicken to grow faster, at the cost of hunger.

Dryosaurus, like almost all other mobs, has a mood that can drop or be raised through various means. Having a low mood means it may attack or avoid you, having a high mood will make it passive. Right-click it with a Dinopedia to see its current mood.

A fossil version of the Dryosaurus can be created by right-clicking a bio-fossil on the ground, which will create a random skeleton of a prehistoric creature with a small chance of it being a Dryosaurus.

Like most other mobs in the mod, they do not spawn naturally in the world and must be created by the player through the culture vat. As they are dinosaurs, they hatch from small eggs that need to be warmed by torches or any other light source.


Dryosaurus are passive, timid herbivores, that cannot break blocks, and will flee from anything that attacks them. They can fit through one block gaps, so be careful when making an enclosure that will contain Dryosaurus. They are preyed upon by a wide variety of prehistoric carnivores due to their small size and vulnerability, including Allosaurus, Ceratosaurus, Deinonychus, Dilophosaurus, Kelenken, Liopleurodon, megalodon, Mosasaurus, Phorusrhacos, Sarcosuchus, Smilodon, Spinosaurus, Titanis, Tyrannosaurus, and Velociraptor. This can make them a very practical live-food source, as they will not fight back and are not very hard to catch.

The Dryosaurus will interact with toy balls and tethered logs when they see them. These enrichment items will increase their mood as they play.

When hungry, they seek out and eat plants or food in feeders. Dryosaurus is diurnal, and sleeps during the night.

If there are both a male and female happy, adult Dryosaurus in a small area, they can breed and lay eggs every five minutes. The breeding probability is handled by how many individuals are nearby.


Dryosaurus, like most prehistoric creatures, can be tamed by being within 6 blocks of them when they hatch. If this opportunity is missed, they can then be tamed either through feeding, or using a whip on them. Feeding it increases their mood, while whipping lowers it. When tamed, they cannot be ridden. They can be ordered with a stick.


Dryosaurus automatically eat many kinds of plants when they are hungry. They will also eat from a feeder with plants in it if they can see one. Dryosaurus can be hand-fed wheat, apples, melons, carrots, sugar, sugarcane, cookies, potatoes, cake, any seeds, ferns, and bread. They can also eat ancient ferns.
