In real life

Troodon (wounding tooth) was a small, carnivorous (Possibly omnivorous) Theropod that lived in Cretaceous North America about 77.5-76.5 MYA in the Judith River,, Oldman and Two Medicine Formations. It is believed to be one of the most intelligent dinosaurs to exist, about as inteligent as a primitive Opossum. It is also highly believed that it was fully feathered. It existed as one of the last non-avian dinosaurs on Earth, probably surviving until the Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) extinction event. In real life it would probably behave much like a bird due to it's current placement on the tree of bird evolution. The name Troodon means wounding tooth.

In Dinosaur Simulator

It is light grey with a bird like head that has two very large eyes that have a blinking animation and two white stripes behind them. It has bird-like hands and wings along with a tailfan of pennaceous feathers. It's snout/beak, hands and feet are a greyish-brown color. It resembles a small bird.

The Troodon is one of the few badge obtainable dinosaurs, unlocked by surviving five days as another omnivore (Typically the Ornithomimus.) It has very decent health and damage for its tiny size. Many carnivorous babies think they have an easy first prey in the Troodon, only to quickly become the Troodon's dinner.

In patch 5.5.0, Troodon gained the ability to climb trees. This, in addition to the omnivorous diet of the Troodon, made it arguably one of the easiest dinosaurs to survive with. However, the Troodon can currently not climb trees because of a glitch.

Trivia

  • Troodon was once known from many specimens from across North America, but is now considered a "wastebasket taxon" due to most of it's fossils being assigned to new genuses. It is now only known from a few teeth from multiple fossil sites.

Yutashu was a skin added in the Black Friday of 2017. It has way improved animations compared to the Classic Troodon. It is also armed with it's own unique roars.

The Yutashu unlike the normal skin of the Troodon is able to grab and carry quite a selection of slightly bigger small dinosaurs despite it's small size. A few examples are the baby Giganotosaurus, baby Baryonyx, and even a juvenile Yutashu.

Officially, it's a parasite that latches on to Rekkusu's tail when it is an infant. Once it grows to a large enough size, it detaches from the tail and becomes an independent organism. This is why it is frequently called "Mini-Rekkusu".

Trivia

  • Yutashu was originally a carnivore when it came out. In the following update, however, it was made into an omnivore. This made it easier for it to live as it was hard for it to find killable prey by itself.
  • Its code can be found on the normal map if you hover your mouse over a chicken engineer plushy that is found in a small hole on the side of a mountain near the map border.
