Readd Ankylosaurus, Giganotosaurus, Ceratosaurus, and Camarasaurus to Mesozoica

Mesozoica will without a doubt be the ultimate dinosaur tycoon game. It has many confirmed species, from Scelidosaurus to Argentinosaurus. Currently, there are 56 confirmed species and at least 5 more are on their way for a total of 61. The current species list, however, lacks many of the animals planned or even modeled in the past. The species list is confirmed to be a work in progress with more species being added over time, so we must voice our opinions on which characters should get in the game.

Out of all creatures cut from the roster, four of them leave a gaping hole in the roster: Ankylosaurus, Giganotosaurus, Ceratosaurus, and Camarasaurus. We as fans would like for these creatures to be readded to the game. We understand that each animal takes a lot of time and effort to be created, but each of these animals would help to improve the game and satisfy fans.

I will explain the reasoning for each of the four species that should be readded.

  • Ankylosaurus is somewhat of a dinosaur celebrity. It appears in countless TV shows, movies, novels, and video games. In fact, it appears in two out of the four Jurassic Park movies and in Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis, the game Mesozoica is a spiritual successor of. Ankylosaurus is known for being a defensive herbivore- almost a living tank. It would certainly be a unique addition to the game. Although its relative Euoplocephalus is in the game, Euoplocephalus is smaller than Ankylosaurus and not as popular or well-defended. Both species are unique and they should both be in the game. In conclusion, Ankylosaurus should be readded to Mesozoica because it is popular, so people can recreate Jurassic World, because it is in Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis, and because it would fill a unique role in the roster.
  • Gigantosaurus is another dinosaur celebrity. It is well known for being larger than Tyrannosaurus rex and possibly coexisting with the mighty Argentinosaurus. Gigantosaurus surely would have been a shoo-in, but it has been replaced with Tyrannotitan. However, Tyrannotitan is not a proper replacement for Gigantosaurus. It is not as famous as its larger relative, and it is smaller, more basal, and from a different place and time. Both dinosaurs can and should appear in Mesozoica together, and that is what fans would like to happen. Gigantosaurus' readdition would excite almost all dinosaur fans.
  • Ceratosaurus isn't quite as famous as Ankylosaurus or Gigantosaurus, but it is more popular than most dinosaurs. Strangely, Ceratosaurus was cut from the roster despite being popular and being Max Wood's favorite dinosaur. It is a classic predator from the Morrison Formation, which would never feel complete without it. Additionally, Ceratosaurus appeared in Jurassic Park III and Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis. Ceratosaurus should be readded to the game because it is a fan-favorite that appeared in Jurassic Park III & JPOG and it is an iconic Morrison Formation dinosaur.
  • Last but not least is Camarasaurus. Although it isn't particularly well-known, Camarasaurus is the most common sauropod from the Morrison Formation and the most understood sauropod. Without Camarasaurus, the Morrison Formation absolutely can not be properly represented. It makes no sense for its most common dinosaur to be omitted. Additionally, it appeared in Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis. Camarasaurus is an extremely important dinosaur that should be readded because the Morrison Formation can not be properly represented without it and it appeared in JPOG.

As fans, we hope that the developers of Mesozoica will read this petition and realize that Ankylosaurus, Giganotosaurus, Ceratosaurus, and Camarasaurus are fan-favorites that should be readded to the game's species list.
