  • Each player draws 6 dinosaurs from the bag.
  • The player with the placement die rolls it.
  • Each player chooses a dinosaur and places it in their zoo at the same time, following the rules on the placement die (except the roller).
  • Each player passes their dinosaur bag and placement die (if they had it) to their left.
