This is how you get the chocolate boxes and Dino Candy

In order to get the coveted chocolates that make taming easier and heal your dinosaurs for 100% when you feed them, you need to get your pets to mate.

Next to the eggs they lay, there is a chance that the Chocolate Boxes will appear. The candies to temporarily change the color of your Dino can also spawn next to the eggs when they’re mating.

It’s even easier as an admin:



  1. Must include a whole new map. Lol. The update itself is 58.46 GB big. Compared to the typical 15 GB event updates.

    I mean come on wildcard. Why are these event updates so huge?
