There are a lot of things you’ll need to manage in Jurassic World Evolution, but chief among them is the amount of food that your dinosaurs have available to them. While you might think that your herbivores will be fine—given the extremely large forests near them—they’ll need to be given a means of nourishment that only you can provide. Here’s everything you need to know about feeding your dinosaurs in Jurassic World Evolution.

How to Feed Your Dinosaurs

Feeding your dinosaurs is important, and Jurassic World Evolution makes it very easy to get everything squared away and taken care of. However, the game never really makes it clear that you need to provide for them. While it might seem like common sense to think that your herbivores would eat from the trees and different vegetation that is scattered across the enclosure, they actually won’t eat unless you provide them with feeding stations.

You can find the different feeders available to you in the Enclosures menu of the game. There are different feeders available for both herbivores and carnivores. There are two types of each feeder at the start.

For herbivores, you have the Ground Herbivore Feeder and the Tall Herbivore Feeder. Each feeder offers access to food for different types of dinosaurs, so you’ll want to include feeders that make sense for your current allotment of creatures.

For carnivores, you have the Carnivore Feeder, which puts several pieces of raw meat up for the carnivores to turn into dinner. However, if you want to provide a little more action for your park’s resident meat-eaters, then the Live Bait Feeder is what you’ll want to look into, as it releases a live animal into the enclosure, allowing your carnivores to go hunting for their food. This not only entertains the audience of guests you have coming into your park, but it also helps keep your carnivores entertained and on the prowl for their food.

How to Restock Feeders

Feeders won’t last forever, though. You’ll actually need to restock them every so often. Like other alerts in the world, you’ll be notified when the feeders around your park start to run out of food. At this time, you’ll need to send in a Ranger team to restock. This can be tricky, though, as you’ll need to time these trips when the carnivores in your enclosures are away from the feeders, otherwise your employees might find themselves on the dinner plate.
