Note: We are 99% sure this is accurate. Unfortunately without the android version out, we do not yet have the full datamine needed to confirm all of it, but we are almost positive there are no changes from what we saw previously!
With 1.7 now released, we’ve got a brand new spawn guide for you! There were a NUMBER of significant changes this time around, particularly with Epic spawns shifting to different zones and with Park Spawns moving to the new Dinosaur of the Day feature.
If you have no clue what we’re talking about, check out our feature by clicking here.
But for now, let’s get into the nuts and bolts of how spawns work in Jurassic World Alive and where you need to go to find your favorite dinosaurs!
What Influences Spawns in Jurassic World Alive?
Though we don’t know exactly how it plays out, spawn points are clearly associated with location tags that influence which dinosaurs are found there. The broadest of these tags encompass all dinosaurs currently spawning in the game and are listed below:
- Local (4 different regions)
- Nests (There doesn’t seem to be much difference, so we’ll update those at a later time)
- Hybrid Pursuit (introduced in 1.5)
- Daily Dinosaurs (new in 1.7)
Global spawns can spawn at any point while park spawns spawn at parks, preserves, and other naturalesque public locations. The four localized categories are more vague. These appear to be what we referred to as “local spawns” in our previous spawn article.
These may be the areas that we are most likely to see dinosaur “migrations” to and from. These four local categories may be variable in size, but all appear to cover broad areas. We don’t know what these local areas are tied to, but we can tell you what appears in each one!
Parks changed in CRAZY ways in 1.7. Because of the daily dino feature, a ton of dinosaurs were moved OUT of parks and into daily rotations. Which means parks are now MUCH more focused.
In addition to the global spawns above, we have two other items that will affect the Global spawns. The first is via the Hybrid Pursuit program, where Ludia adds one global dinosaur for a week to the global table above. It spawns with the same frequency of other dinosaurs based on rarity – so you won’t see Epic dinosaurs covering your map if an Epic dinosaur is featured.
The second item is brand new in Patch 1.7 and it varies not by location, but by day of the week. On each given day, you’ll see different dinosaurs appearing globally, so the map should always have new and interesting things to see each day. Below is our table of the daily dinosaurs.

Nests in Jurassic World Alive
Jurassic World Alive does not currently have “nests” in the sense that Pokemon Go did, but there is something we will call nests that we think is even cooler! You may have noticed that some dinosaurs only spawn at certain times (day or night), but you occasionally see these dinosaurs at other times (e.g. running into a Velociraptor mid-day). If this happens to you, you’ve just run across a nest!
We’ve linked certain spawn points to business/building types and, at these points, a group of dinosaurs can spawn at anytime. Below is a list of these nest locations and their associated dinosaurs.
Remember, there’s always a very low chance that any Dino can spawn anywhere, so if you see a Dino extremely out of place, then that should be your explanation!
*Special Thanks to OrangeHeart and Piere87 for creating these graphics and to SomeRandomPoke on our Discord Server for helping us datamine these awesome spawn tables.
Let this be your guide to dinosaur habitats and habits and go explore! There is still much to learn about just how rare dinosaurs are at these locations and exactly how much variability there is with each spawn point. If you want to join in the hunt and conversation, check out our Discord!
