|Real Creature||Dryosaurus altus|
Dryosaurus (meaning "Tree/oak lizard") is a prehistoric creature that was added in the 7.3.1 update. It is a genus of dryosaurid ornithopod that lived in the Jurassic period between 155 to 145 mya.
Females are brown rather than green, and do not have the red throat that males do.
Dryosaurus are gentle, timid herbivores. They are preyed upon by many carnivores due to their small size, and run away from most predators. When hungry, they seek out and eat plants or food in feeders. Dryosaurus is diurnal, and sleeps during the night.
If there is both a Male and Female adult Dryosaurus in a small area they can breed every few minutes.
Dryosaurus, like most prehistoric creatures, is tamed with a Whip. When tamed, it cannot be ridden because it is too small. It can be ordered with a Stick.
Dryosaurus automatically eat plants when they are hungry. They will also eat from a Feeder if they can see them. Dryosaurus can be hand-fed wheat, apples, melons, carrots, sugar, sugarcane, cookies, potatoes, cake, any seeds, ferns, and bread.
