The Petrodactyl is the eighth pterodactyl in the game. It can be found in the stampede when the player upgrades their pterodactyl habitat to level 9.

Appearance Edit

The Petrodactyl has a white body and a black crest with a small ember at the tip. Its eyes are filled out completely red, contrasting wildly with its black head. Its wing bones are black, and its wings itself being a red to yellow gradient. Angry flames plume from its wings, and a single line of fiery light streams behind, giving the Petrodactyl a wicked aura.

Description Edit

Hey slick, let's go on a fossil-fuelled rampage.

Requirements Edit

Note: Its chance of appearing is extremely low due to it being a tier 5 animal. It will appear randomly but very rarely, and never before 1800m.

Trivia Edit

  • The Petrodactyl is a play on petrol and oil, with its name being a portmanteau of 'petrol' and 'pterodactyl'.
    • Its appearance references this, as petrol is a highly flammable liquid.
    • The description plays on this with several puns: "slick", being a name for a mate as well as an oil slick, and "fossil-fuelled", which plays on how oil is a fossil fuel. This also reverse plays on how dinosaur evidence can be discovered from "fossil[s]".

Notes Edit

  • The Petrodactyl was released in version 1.8.0 on the 18th of May 2017, along with Jurassic and most Jurassic animals.
