    I know it's just fantasy, but the price of an alive Meganeura would cover more than 200 adult Komodo dragons...

    If this kind of park could happen in real world, we maybe even should ask the other park a price for let us exhibit their komodo dragons in our space :p

    Equally, 3 baby ornithimimus are inevitably worth more than 9 terns and 3 penguins, but we can't be exchanging 100s of animals for a single dinosaur if the thread is going to be sustainable/somewhat realistic, so I think there needs to be a slight disalignment of monetary/exchange values in the scenarios

    Never mind the non-extinct animals, that was just a test to see if it added more to the game
    REWIND TIME!!!
    (zip zip zip zip zip)
    We never traded the Dino's and never got the offers

    A. Decline the offer as
    1. A butterfly walkthrough with a meganura would be awful as the meganura would kill the butterflies
    2. We would help the "competition"
    3. Right now we want to remain the only zoo that houses prehistoric creatures
    Eventually people who impacted the making of this park can make their own threads that are exactly like this one but have a different name (Prehistoric World, Prehistoric Gardens, ect)
    Then we will be directors of our own zoos but still play the game regularly on each thread
    The added feature to this would be that we could trade creatures that are exclusive to our zoos

    I really like that idea - it may be difficult to keep track of different treads but I think that sounds really cool if we can try it!

    Also, just wanna say that I know some of my posts may have seemed fairly passuve aggressive/combative but they really weren't meant to be!! I really enjoy being part of these threads and don't want anyone to think I'm deliberately arguing or trying to ruin things for others, I was just expressing opinions and not denying others theirs! Peace and love xx

    @SpinyLiving would you like to sort a new scenario to get this back on track?

    Sure CDavies here's the scenario
    Scenario
    Troodons were pack-hunters and our Troodon, Stowaway, is currently housed alone
    Keepers at the park want us to get some more Troodons so Stowaway could form her own pack, the first pack in 65 million years
    Do we......
    A. Go back to prehistoric Texas to find Troodons so that Stowaway could form her own pack
    B. Don't go to prehistoric Texas

    A. Get more Troodons
    We came out with 1.2 Troodons, the male named Captain, and the females named First Mate and Gunner.
    Scenario
    We are looking for ways to introduce the Troodons, do we...
    A. Introduce the two groups slowly
    B. Just throw them together and see what happens
    C. You decide any other way to introduce them.

    A. Introduce the two groups slowly as it seems that Captain (Captain, Captain, Captain, Jack Daniels, Captain, Captain, Captain) is a sort-of pack leader for the new Troodons, and we want Stowaway to be the alpha, so the first incounter is between Stowaway and Captain
    Results
    Stowaway successfully intimadates Captain and he reluctantly hands over his title as alpha
    Scenario
    Some dunce desides to jump over the railing into the Troodon pen.....Stowaway, being at Prehistoric Park since the beginning knows not to attack people, the others though.......the resulting mess was one that no one wants to clean up
    This event leads to some people to question the parks safety
    Do we.....
    A. Make the railings taller and say that the park is safe
    B. Don't do anything other than put signs that say to not jump into the pen

    Master plan
    1.Finish Birds of the Past aviary/birdhouse
    2. Renovate Elasmotherium exhibit (again) so that we could add another animal to the mix, most notably the Parasaurotherium (largest rhino and land mammal of all time). A rhino house is also a must
    3. Begin Construction on a croc or large reptile house probably decided by vote
    4. Marsupial Lion expansion to our existing Smilodon breeding pen
    5. World-Class breeding center for our animals
    6. Large South American mammals tri-exhibit
    7. Canines of the past exhibit (featuring Andrewsarchus, Dire Wolves, Hyenadons, and Megistotherium)
    8. Phase out Titanosaurs (by this time I'm hoping that we will be set up enough that you guys will have your own zoos)

    A. Make the railings taller, and add viewing windows with triple-layered security glass where this is possible and safe to do, so as to not hinder viewing AND add signs instructing visitors to not jump/climb around the exhibits

    This reassures the public and guest numbers increase by 10%.

    Scenario:
    Alton Towers, a huge theme park in the UK, has offered to sponsor our park and donate £350 million to our park, which we could use however we wish (i.e to develop our bird aviary/large bird house) but ask that we name one of our Smilodon cubs Smiler, after it's famous ride of the same name. However, this ride is the one which crashed in 2015, resulting in 16 injured guests, including two teenage girls who needed leg amputations and the park being fined £5 million. There are therefore concerns regarded public perception and a backlash if this sponsorship goes ahead. Do we:

    A. Accept the sponsorship donation
    B. Decline the sponsorship donation

    B. Deny the sponsorship
    Nigel desides that it is too risky to sponsor with Alton Towers and denies the sponsorship to avoid backlash
    Scenario
    Nigel's next mission is to go back to prehistoric North America to rescue the Titanis and the Teratorn
    However, while looking for the giant birds, Nigel and David stumble across another prehistoric animal, the American Lion, stuck in a tar pit
    The poor animal has massive burns from the tar, and is clearly in pain
    In fact the animal has passed out from the pain
    Do we...........
    A. Rescue the American lion?
    B. Let nature take its course

    A. Rescue the American Lion - Nigel was never one to leave animals to die if he could stop it - the American Lion could be added to the precinct created by expanding the Smilodon enclosures if it survives. After sending the Lion back for treatment, Nigel goes on to capture 0.2 Teratorns and takes them back to Prehistoric Park.

    Scenario
    After the Troodon incident Keeper Bob is worried about the danger the parks animals could cause in the event of an escape, so he suggests implanting an electric neurological implant into all of the animals that it can be applied to (mainly vertebrates I assume), which can be used to manipulate brain commands and terminate the animals life humanely in the event of an escape. However, the implant procedure involves sedating all of the animals, which poses its' own risks.

    A. Administer the implants
    B. Do not administer the implants

    B. Do not administer the implants
    Nigel tells Bob that he doesn't think that the animals could escape (especially the Troodons since their exhibit is a pit in the ground) and that the Troodon incident was the tourists fault, which seems to ease Bobs mind a bit however, Bob orders the building of several watchtowers to keep track of the animals
    At the same time, Head Vet Susan walks into the room with great news!
    The American Lion has survived the night!
    Scenario
    After the Troodon incident, Bob plans to train the other Troodons not to attack people
    However, he can't desides which training strategy to use
    Do we.....
    A. Train each Troodon (exept for Stowawy) separately using person shaped dummies and treats if they don't attack, small electric shocks if they do
    B. Train them all together using a person wearing armor and a electric baton, if they attack shock, if they don't treats
