|Distance Found||> 1800m|
The Dankylosaurus is the eighth type of ankylosaurus in the game by order in the zoo. It can be found in the stampede when the player upgrades their ankylosaurus habitat to level 9.
The Dankylosaurus uses the Ankylosaurus as a rough base for its own appearance. The Dankylosaurus is notable for using metallic shading that changes in real time. Not only does it wear a pair of sunglasses, but its body is coloured a metallic dark-gold gradient, its tail and upper plating is a metallic pinkish white and its claws are coloured white. Most notably, its tail club is a bright, flashing disco ball, releasing blurred spots of light to simulate a bloom effect. The underside of the disco ball tail appears to shine bright light on the ground.
