"Skins" are aesthetic changes that are only available to some dinosaurs. Some of these skins include minor buffs. There have been a few skins added to the game over the course of the game's history, though many new ones are appearing recently.
Classic skins are the old models of the dinosaurs that it belongs to. The creators of the game are remaking the models of the dinosaurs with more complex textures and more animations. These all require the classic GamePass to use. These skins look more "blocky" and usually only have one animation. To use these skins, you must first have the dinosaur of the skin unlocked. Dinosaurs that have these skins are:
Kaiju Skins series are limited time skins based on kaijus usually from the Godzilla franchise. They are modeled after villains of Godzilla and usually have special abilities. There are currently only five kaiju skins, but with the upcoming Kong: Skull Island film and new Godzilla films in the future, more kaiju skins may be added. The dinosaurs with kaiju skins are:
Baryonyx (Zilla or 1998 Godzilla)
Sauroposeidon (Kaiser Ghidorah)
Movie skins are based off of dinosaurs from the Jurassic Park films. These are the series with the least amount of skins, having only 3. They were released along with Kaiju skins and the Indominus Rex (Renamed Albino Terror due to copyrights) during the release of Jurassic World film in 2015, then re-released on Black Friday of 2015 and 2016. The dinosaurs with these skins include:
Fossil Skins were a halloween event series available usually in October. Unlike the other skins in here, players had to find fossils around the map to earn the skins. There are nine dinosaurs with these skins, which are:
Golden skins are a newer version of skin series released in February of 2017. These were basically the same newer models of the dinosaurs but with a golden-yellow texture all around. These are so far the most expensive skins at 5000 DNA each. Unlike the previous skins, you had to visit the trading map and purchase a golden egg from, in which you receive a random Golden skin. These aren't as treasured anymore, and are considered recolors, like a few very old DS skins. The dinosaurs with these skins are:
The second Skin Series in which you have to buy from an egg at the trading map, the Plushies were much cheaper than the Golden skins, costing only 500 DNA. They were released in late February of 2016 are simple models of the DInosaurs that resemble stuffed toys. The dinosaurs of these skins are:
Late Valetnine Pteranodon Plush (rarest)
Apatosaurus Plush (first plush skin, released for the one year anniversary of the game, unavailable)
Mayhem Skins are a new skin series released recently on March 18th 2017. The skins are obtained by opening eggs, similar to Golden and Plush skins. It cost 1500 DNA to hatch an egg. These skins are mainly popular and different from the other skins series obtained by buying an egg due to their ability to change parts of their color by roaring. Dinosaurs that have these skins are:
Galactics are the latest skin types. They're semi-valued to extremely high-valued and are currently limited. They used to be eggs costing 3,000 DNA a piece. There are also going to be 3 galactic skins that will be buyable for about 100+ DNA. These skins include:
Galactic Albino Terror
This skin series have been recently added by developers and are just re-colors of every single dinosaur available in game. They are colored in a light-blue color and have a little bit of shine too it. Much like the Golden skins, but these skins are not earned through eggs but bought with DNA. These are the most detailed out of the recolors.
This series of skins have just been recently added, a few weeks after the Diamond skins were added. These skins are similar to mayhem skins, where they would change color if the keys #1 or R is pressed. These skins are like the diamond skins and are just a re-color but with a color changing ability. Some of these skins can be obtained by collecting eggs that would randomly spawn in the main map. That event is over.
