The Dinosaur is a farm animal that lives in a Big Coop. Dinosaurs can be hatched by placing a Dinosaur Egg into an Incubator, taking Time Icon.png 18,000m (11d 6h 40m) to incubate, or Time Icon.png 9,000m (5d 16h 40m) with the Coopmaster Profession.

Dinosaurs are born mature. A mature and fed dinosaur produces a Dinosaur Egg every 7 days, which can be placed in an Incubator to hatch another dinosaur, or sold for data-sort-value="350">Gold.png350g. If you have used the Treasure Appraisal Guide.png Treasure Appraisal Guide the egg instead sells for data-sort-value="1050">Gold.png1,050g.

A Dinosaur Egg can be placed in a Mayonnaise Machine to produce Dinosaur Mayonnaise, which sells for data-sort-value="800">Gold.png800g.

It is possible to sell the Dinosaur. A Dinosaur with more hearts sells for more gold. A Dinosaur with maximum hearts sells for data-sort-value="1300">Gold.png1,300g. A dinosaur with no hearts sells for data-sort-value="315">Gold.png315g.

Note that a dinosaur with 0 hearts of friendship technically sells for data-sort-value="300">Gold.png300g, but the player cannot access the 'sell' menu without petting the dinosaur, which gives 15 friendship points (30 with the Coopmaster profession), and increases the sell price to data-sort-value="315">Gold.png315g (data-sort-value="330">Gold.png330g with Coopmaster).

To sell a coop or barn animal, right-click the animal after petting. The friendship/mood interface appears. Move the cursor over the gold coin button at the right to see how much the animal can be sold for. Click that button and the confirmation that follows to complete the sale.
