The rumour mill suggests that while there may be a list indicating which critter you need to spot or attract to get a particular dino egg in your nest...there is also a recurring pattern of progression. Has anyone learned whether this is true or not? Eg. If you need to spot or attract a duck for a dip egg...the next critter the next week that you are doing dips will be the field mouse. (this is a made up example so no validity to it). Thanks.
Rumor? Fact is the critters required are the same for everyone as people have been recording and you can see them listed in the fan sites, for example: http://www.freedomfairies.com/dinosaur-guide.html
But are they in a particular order? Meaning...the list is such that if you have a duck...the next rotation is the fielder...then the raccoon...etc. The information that I had seen just had possible critters...not a rotation that was inevitable...so that you could plant ahead. I will check that guide thanks.
There is no particular order, in fact you might even have to spot/attract the same critter for 2 consecutive weeks.
I looked at that link thanks. For the triceratops my order has been kingfisher, penguin...and PUFFIN. So that does not line up totally. If it did then I would have had seal after the penguin. I wanted to know if there is a proper order that the critters follow...so I would know what I would have after the puffin.
Maybe someone has done more work on this and can tell me if there is an order.

Mine haven't been in a predictable order. I've had some twice on the trot, and whilst I've been asked for some several times, there are some I haven't been asked for at all.
It does seem, maybe just co-incidence, that a friend and I get the same critters. She will say...I have zebra...and I will say...I have zebra. That is kind of nice to have a garden already at my disposal for hunting. I wonder if garden numbers influence what critters you get? I am also seeing a lot of the same people visiting my garden as they did last week when we had the same critter.
Interesting question Mary! I know my garden id# when multiplied by 100 & this, that, the other computer programming jargon I don't exactly get creates an algorithm so all my topiary ending in even #'s have identical critter order no matter what pot/color. So it could be something like like? Or it could be totally random. Interesting!
I believe there might be some order, but different for everyone. So far it does seem that everyone on T-Rex follows the exact same order, but it is not true for the lower Dinos. There is probably more than one order possible for those and it is allocated based on garden IDs or similar randomizer. I am sure if there are some recognizable patterns, somebody will work it out eventually. ;)
