A tyrannosaurus rex thunders forth from the treeline, its incredible jaws roaring open to capture its prey.
A shimmering crystal dragon takes flight from an island floating high in the clouds, soaring over the mortals far below.
A feathered velociraptor ducks and weaves through the jungle undergrowth, nimbly avoiding being seen by the mother whose nest it hopes to raid.
And at the helm… you!
Transform into any one of our 30+ dinosaur species or mythic creatures in moments, and let the ground quake beneath your feet (with visible dust particles for heavy landings!) as you stride across Second Life.
Customise your appearance with 16+ unique skins included with every avatar (up to 40 per avatar!) and other body-mod options (depending on species) including feathers, claws, horns, stances, and more, all available at the click of a button.
Act the part with fluid movement animations (including Bento rigging for all new and recently updated avatars) and up to 46 action buttons (depending on species), so you can roar, fight, eat, sleep, socialise, lay eggs, and even breathe fire or raise zombies!
And that’s just to start with. There’s so much that you can be in the Dawn Kingdoms.
The Prehistorica Sim on Second Life offers a unique and (almost) authentic prehistoric environment to explore. Custom-built, using only era-appropriate plant life and features, this is a location unlike any other on the grid. Roam lush jungles, barren plains, natural caverns, volcanic vistas, exposed beaches and marine environments, and discover a habitat for every species.
You can add to the immersion by using the exclusive Primal Life survival simulator, a game HUD that interfaces with your Dawn Kingdoms avatar. Hunt through the virtual landscape for food, water, and shelter, all while avoiding – or fighting! – other creatures.
But… what’s that? A strange scientific gadget, quietly blinking away in the undergrowth? An inexplicable shimmer of light in the air? A glimpse of… something… floating high above, visible only through gaps in the clouds?
There’s more to this world than meets the eye…
Don’t want to be a creature as much as you want to own one? We hear you! Our animesh range is coming, and it’s going to be incredible. For sneak previews of some of the features, look out for our event-exclusive charity products and giveaways!
You can also purchase static diorama statues of our models and accompanying prehistoric plant life for your landscaping needs, only at the in-world store.
There are also expansions to make your Dawn Kingdoms avatars even better. Try bakes-on-mesh or swappable alternate body parts for even more personalisation. Or get scripts and saddles to allow another avatar to ride on your back – or in your mouth or claws!
Explore the range, and stay tuned for more exciting things to come.
Our grand museum-style in-world store is a great place to hang out. View our detailed dioramas, catch up on upcoming events, and show off your avatars!
Launch parties for new releases are regularly held in this space and out on the SIM, with live music, herd migrations, or flights of dragons. And, of course, mini-games! (And mini-games mean prizes…!)
This is a family-friendly SIM (although nature is red in tooth and claw). Virtual days out, school trips, and science expeditions are welcome!
Dawn Kingdoms avatars can be modified by you beyond the built-in customisation options. If you’re a creator yourself, or know your way around a relevant computer program or two, then you can build your own modifications. Your imagination is the limit!
For some avatars, non-SL-compatible files have been made available for external download to help with creating well-fitting mods and add-ons. It will say in the avatar’s notecards if there is an associated mod kit. You can find all mod kits available to date on the Downloads page.
Fort Nowhere is owned by the talented Wanders Nowhere. This sim has some of the most unique, & awesome avatars for sale here. … Sound effects, Smoking Volcanos, crunchy underbrush in the forest adds the the immersive RP. We had a ball as we battled with LOUD trumpeting growls and snarls as we charged.
… Wanders the busy creator is very friendly, accommodating to visitors and, loves to hear feedback. We hope you get to see this place for yourself, grab the freebies and have a great time role playing!
Ah, the good old days when triceratops roamed, plesiosaurus prowled the seas and pteranodons glided through the skies. If you have a hankering for those Cretaceous or Jurassic Period giants, head over to Prehistorica: The Dawn Kingdom, where you can live out your days as if it were tens of millions of years ago.
You’re also welcome to visit as a human, but be careful that you’re not devoured by a tyrannosaurus … And to start your journey you do, of course, have to travel backwards in time, swirling through a time vortex of some sort, and it’s a delight (next image) — I repeated by trip several times just for fun.
… Don’t have a dinosaur avatar? You’re in luck, because plenty are available for sale right there, including a free sample. The mesh animals are remarkably detailed, are gigantic, move quite naturally and include easy-to-use HUDs for roaring, eating and so on.
Prehistorica: The Dawn Kingdoms is a very unique role-play area – for dinosaurs. The gorgeous landscape, with one of the best volcanoes in Second Life … is best seen as one of many dinosaurs available at the arrival area. There is a free dinosaur avatar and time explorer outfit in the arrival area for visitors to wear for role play – and great sculpted and mesh dinosaurs to purchase … with lots of options and animations. I explored Prehistorica as the as a flying Pterosaur and highly recommend that you visit.
I first went to Cretaceous Canyon and was immediately amazed by what I saw. There are dinosaurs roaming around like you just stepped back I time. You can hear sounds of them all around you. I just loved exploring and seeing some of the dinosaurs up close. To just be able to imagine what it was millions years ago it just amazing.
… What a wonderful place with all the sights and sounds of dinosaurs. I just loved being able to see what it must have been like while the dinosaurs roamed the earth. … The beauty of Second Life is not only what you can buy but also what you can see. If you haven’t already make sure you take a trip to this sim at least once.
“I was extremely pleased with my purchase of this avatar, you really get what you pay for, and more!
The animations are top-notch and lifelike, it’s such pleasure to see it in action, from the genuine fear factor when the frills deploy with jaws wide open to the fascinating, graceful and beautiful sniffing and searching animations among others.
Just watching the avatar walk, run, jump and just doing the most basic things has never looked so stunning…
As if that’s not good enough on its own, the modification potential of the textures and colors is extreme, but i’m tempted to add this is an avatar that has no real need for further modding; The preset options included are perfect for my own needs!
I’m tempted to say that if you feel unsure whether to invest into getting this avatar or not, think no more, get it! You will NOT be disappointed.
It’s so well done… I’m very impressed!
I love this avatar already! … Overall very nice design, tons of custom skins and animations, you’re going to give other avatar creators a run for their money with this one!
I was in love with this dinosaur and more by this creator when I got the opportunity to see some of them in action in world. I knew dino avis existed, but never so…real. And, in mesh? Wow…As a person who has never used a dinosaur avi, yet has been a long-time lover of dinosaurs, I was excited to try one for myself! And, it does not disappoint! It looks exactly like the vendor photo, not some heavily Photoshopped version that looks nothing like the actual product. I also love how it comes with everything you need, including AO, in the pack. And finally, as a person whom just loves being able to customize things, it comes with so many textures to choose from! It’s an awesome buy. <3
Wow, I didn’t think Prehistorica could top the Dragon but they keep pushing the envelope. The wyvern has the same overall look and feel as the DK dragon, with the same skins and many of the same features, but they’ve polished and updated everything and there’s now better HUD control and even more animations. And there’s no worries about modding – there’s a full kit for download from their website and a bunch of tools included with the avatar. Even if you don’t mod, there’s a STAGGERING amount of customisability with this thing, I think I counted more than 40 skins inbuilt into the HUD and you can show and hide the horns, spikes, etc and then save your dragon’s look as a preset for later. And it has tons of breath weapons, spells, attacks and actions built in for RPers to go wild with.
The thing that blew my brain was that this one has FIVE size categories boxed in for the same price!! If you wanted one of these but thought it was too big (or wanted to go even bigger) you need worry no more. You can be anything from slightly smaller than a human to bigger than my house. I understand that the other dragon will be updated with these new features soon so if you prefer four legs to two, you’re still in luck. But if you want a Skyrim or GOT style dragon you really can’t go past this avatar.
Overall, beyond impressed, can’t overstate how fantastic I think these dragons are! Thank you Prehistorica!
Thank you to this awesome designer!! I love everything about my Allosaurus, and the fact that you can change skin, eyes, teeth and claws expression by the HUD (witch in it self are pretty monster cool with sound effects), makes it so easy to give it your own personal look. The movements are smooth, and all those different commands are just fantastic. All-in-all an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING product.
A very well made bento AV. Has many features and it’s always fun running around with this little fella … Can’t wait for the big one’s bento update. Thank you!
