Prehistoric Rift

Greetings fellow human beings, and welcome to the world of Prehistoric Rift! This addon aims to expand upon the gameplay of Minecraft by adding prehistoric creatures and enhances the vanilla experience!

Please note that when distributing the addon, only use the mcpedl page or the github related links. You can also make a video about this addon but don’t make it a dumb clickbaity one.

If you spot any bugs or if you have suggestions you can post them in the bugtracker on GitHub. Just make sure to browse the area first.. You may also feel free to join my discord server where you can casually hang out, or the twitter account for updates.


These items are essential to make the most out of the addon


These food items are needed to tame and breed the creatures in the addon. Different treats work on different mobs, so try play around with them and see

  • Berry Treats
  • Grassy Treats (tall grass and grass also works)
  • Leafy Treats (all types of leaves work)

  • Rooted Treats (Beetroots and Carrots can also be used)

  • Flesh Treats (any meat thats not chicken works)
  • Fish Treat (salmon also works)

Command Staff

This item is required to utilize the special abilities of your mount. Use it while riding to see what happens!


aka the main attraction of this addon 😀


The Tyrannosaurus can be found in the plains or mountains. It’s neutral most of the time, but every once in a while it will attack anything it deems to be food. In order to tame it, you need to find a baby and give it flesh treats.

Once tamed, its command staff ability is to let out a roar that will knock back most mobs and destroy blocks weaker than wood!


The Stegosaurus can be found in plains biomes grazing alongside other Stegosauruses. Don’t aggravate it because it is capable of killing most mobs in one hit. They can be tamed with berry treats, rooted treats, and grassy treats.


The Dodo is essentially a dumb chicken except that it doesn’t drop any eggs. You can just put them in a pen and breed them with berry treats.

Their meat however is quite special. When cooked, they will grant you absorption.


The Triceratops is a friendlier version of the Stegosaurus, like, you can go pat them in the wild. Don’t aggravate them because they’re quite fast and will not take you lightly. They can be tamed with berry treats, rooted treats, and grassy treats.

Once tamed, their command staff ability is to go into a rage mode where they will be faster and can charge into blocks weaker than wood and mobs, as demonstrated in this video


Utahraptors can be either found in packs hunting or hiding in the forests. Pack leaders may activate their pack buff that will give its pack members swiftness and strength. Though very aggressive, you can make them trust you by giving them flesh treats.

Taming them is a different story. You have to go to a forest and find a baby, and give it flesh treats.

Once tamed, you can power jump way higher than a horse would, and you can even pounce onto other mobs. You can even use the pack buff ability for yourself, as demonstrated in this video:

Other things to note

The vanilla help section has been replaced with a handy guide to the addon, so be sure to read it every now and then!

    I love this addon, very fun to screw around with, but two dinosaurs I would love to see added would be the spinosaurus and some sort of large sauropod like brachiosaurus or apatosaurus

  2. PrinceMJ says:

  3. Guest-9087126263 says:

    Didn’t Work mcaddon is not open my mcpe is open es file explorer and zip not work😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

    • Guest-7516917746 says:

      Este complemento está muy bien hecho pero lo que no me gusto fue que se generan muchos dinosaurios ala ves y te vuelven el survival aburrido por que te enpiezan a matar los utharaptores y Tyrannosaurus, algo que me gustaría que agregarán sería dinos acuaticos y voladores quedaría muy bien en el complemento

      • Guest-5835200245 says:

        This complement is very well done but what I did not like was that many dinosaurs are generated and they make you survival boring because they start killing the utharaptores and Tyrannosaurus, something that I would like to add would be aquatic and flying dinos would be very well in the snap

  4. Guest-2052255545 says:

    this gives me real fossils and archeology vibes if you could update them please stay true to this style

  5. Guest-7892465116 says:

    i just hope you make them better models soon, but awesome addon!

  6. Guest-7912020390 says:

    Pls add aquatic dinosaurs

  7. Wailin says:

    nice addon!

  8. Guest-8958032079 says:

    How do i tame the animals? It isnt working for the t-rex at least.

  9. Guest-7732406225 says:

    add blocks

  10. Guest-3908497421 says:

    hi, i would like to ask if you could add some lesser known dinosaurs like: deinocheris, concavanator, icthyovenator, cryolophosaurus, and yutyrannus. Thank You!

  11. Guest-8209752661 says:

    Can you add a monolophosaurus plz

  12. Guest-6158290258 says:

    Total Ark Dossier Vibes from this. But looks great.
    Idk what happened, but dino addons are popping up all over and I like it.

  13. Guest-3426817441 says:

    This reminds me of the fossils and archaeology mod. Also, tyrannosaur skin has been found, and the Tr.Rex did NOT have feathers. Ither than that, great addon.

    • Guest-3231783836 says:

      Actually, the male t rex has been discovered to have FEATHERS. It’s the female that is unfeathered

      • Guest-7096489014 says:

        No there is no evidence for that.T.rex skin is like duck-bill skin a palaeontologists even stated that some duck-billed skin impressions may have been misidentified.

    • Guest-2257177479 says:

      the trex did have feathers you mental potato

      • Guest-2638506149 says:

        No it didn’t and if you happen to read the reply to the other person above then you’ll find out why.

    • Guest-5317642296 says:

      Tyrannosaurus had feathers,but not penaceous feathers like birds, skin only has knobs if it is penaceous feathers,but skin doesn’t have knobs if it’s simple hair-like feathers,and large tyrannosaurs had hair like feather filaments.

    • bruh can you guys stop arguing, this isnt meant to be scientifically accurate to begin with. all the models of the mobs are based on my preference :/

    • Guest-8860110483 says:

      It still wont allow me to open the file in mc still something is wrong with the file wont work for mobile

  14. M.M.16 player says:

    Can you add the spinosaurus next update? it should spawn naturally at swamps.

  15. Guest-4583976222 says:

  16. FavoriteAnimal says:

  32. Red Fan says:

    This Addon is for prehistoric creatures, not dragons. There are other addons on this site that add dragons.

    • Guest-9882356179 says:

      Then get the addon that addon dragons. Seems like you literally haven’t seen like 5-10 addons about prehistoric that are easy to find in this site.
