Albertosaurus is a three-star small carnivore featured in Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis.
The Albertosaurus roar is a sped-up and pitch-increased version of the Spinosaurus. Its guttural growls are from the sound of a Gorilla, the sound unaltered as the developers likely thought the grunts accommodated well to the dinosaur. The model seems to be based on Gorgosaurus (a close cousin to Albertosaurus) whom at some point was a direct species of Albertosaurus.
More lightly built than it's cousin such as Tyrannosaurus, it forages alone for smaller prey but will gang up to bring down large herbivores using its speed. Like their reality counterparts they live in packs of approximatley 2-6. Even so, they don't like attacking larger dinosaurs such as Brachiosaurus or Camarasaurus. Albertosaurus is the only known dinosaur in JPOG to kill diseased/sickly members of its species. Even though having three stars, the dinosaur (when not hungry) can coexist with the two Dilophosaurus, Ceratosaurus and five Velociraptors. Their favourite prey is Parasaurolophus which it can chase down and then kill.
Albertosaurus fossils can be found in the Judith River: Site A.
Hints & TipsEdit
It is the only carnivore that needs low security fences (compared with the other carnivores, which needs medium or high security fences).
Albertosaurus is a social animal and can coexist with the smaller carnivores, though let it be known that once hungry it will attack the dinosaurs in its enclosure (It is better safer to keep Albertosaurus in its own enclosure or have enough feeder despensers in such cases to avoid conflict).
- Albertosaurus is the biggest of all the small carnivores.
