Pachycephalosaurus

Pachycephalosaurus (also lovingly called ‘Pachy’) are friendly and social creatures. They might seem a little boneheaded, but don’t hold it against them – the hardened dome on their skull lets them smash through even the sturdiest of rocks with ease.

Parasaurolophus

Parasaurolophus are quite a rare sight! These friendly dinosaurs make for loyal, loving companions. They are versatile steeds, capable of travelling long distances and sprinting short ones.

Psittacosaurus

Psittacosaurus are adorable little dinos that like to hang out in pairs. They’re often found sniffing out fresh vegetables in the wild or using their beaks to crack open crunchy treats. Amazingly, Psittacosaurus are distant relatives of the Triceratops, but their small size better suits them for tracking than smashing.

Styracosaurus

Styracosaurus are horned herbivores, often found grazing in fields. Like its large ceratopsian relatives, such as the Triceratops and the Centrosaurus, the Styracosaurus is a friendly rock smasher and farm tiller. They are playful and loyal, and can’t resist a juicy treat such as a strawberry or tomato. Unlike the Triceratops, Styracosaurus can till one piece of land at a time – but it is faster at performing its farming skill.

Triceratops

Triceratops is a large ceratopsian, easily identified by its frill, horns, and love of fresh fruit. They’re loyal companions and make quick work of ploughing fields on the ranch, or cleaning paths in the wild. The Triceratops can till three pieces of land at once, unlike the Styracosaurus, who can only till one piece of land at a time. However, the Triceratops is slower at performing the task.
