Dinosaurs are a false myth in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


Dinosaurs are supposedly sighted in the forested areas of the state with players claiming the herbivorous Dinosaurs are docile while carnivores are hostile.

The myth has been abandoned due to the majority of evidence clearly being the result of a mod with screenshots showing high-resolution textures more detailed than the game's own, advanced animations whose complexity is not present reflected elsewhere in the game and Mesa vehicle skin mods inspired by Jeeps from the movie Jurassic Park.

Logically, this is a game based on the pre-modern 90s', and Dinosaurs existed back millions of years ago, marking this as an 'irrelevant and one of the most ridiculous' myths.


  • In GTA V, an artificial purple Dinosaur, can be found near RON Alternates Wind Farm. The Dinosaur most likely references Barney the Dinosaur.
