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:

  • Global
  • Parks
  • Local (4 different types)

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!

Changes in Spawns post 1.4 Update

In version 1.4.23, Ludia has slightly changed the spawns for Global and Local 3+4.

To complicate things, we do see Dinos pop up in unexpected places. However, most spawns operate as expected, given the categories below. Check out the Dinosaurs in each category, below.

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.

Nest Spawns

Remember, there’s always a very low chance of any dino spawning anywhere, so if you see a dino extremely out of place, then that should be your explanation!

Parting Words

This was a seemingly minor spawn change, but still bigger than the last one. The most important changes are to the Apatosaur, so that would slow down people’s Stegodeus progression quite a bit! If you want to join in the hunt and conversation, check out our Discord!


  1. Since that park spawnings are not related to parks anymore, could you please change “park spawns” into “spawning near green supply drops” (or less words that tell new players this) to be as clearest as possible. 😉

  2. I just HATE the split to different locals!
    Now, they removed Dracorex from L4 exactly when I needed to collect tons of its DNA.
    L2 became even better than before. L4 became much worse.
    Previously Dimetrodon was almost impossible to collect, now Dracorex too… what’s next?
    They just make it impossible to create / level up unique dinosaurs for the people who don’t own a car / travel a lot across different locals. I personally don’t have any good L2 nearby (there is one almost fully taken by a huge golf club where there is absolutely nothing game-related inside…) and I’m really not going to travel far away and stay there for several hours every day just to collect a few Dracorex or Dimetrodon DNA. It’s too much of an effort for a GAME.

    • AFAIK there is no official or unofficial locals map but you can guess what local you’re currently in by looking at the local’s specific dinos. I find this technique easier to use in the night time as you can see many night-time-only dinos (Charlie, Echo, Delta or Carnotaurus) on virtually every corner. You can also guess by seeing other dinos but notice that some of them migrated recently and some of them appear in more than one local (examples are Diplocaulus or Allosaurus which I spot in both locals 3 and 4 regardless of how it is mentioned in the above article)

  3. And how local areas are divided ? When I move next city (15km) I find totally diferent dinos spawning. So is there a chance that local areas are divided the same way pokestops in Pokemon GO are structured ( S2 cells) ?
