The Amber Mosquito is a Pet summoning item that spawns a baby dinosaur to follow you around. If you are high enough into the air a pterosaur will carry your dinosaur by the tail to continue following you. Like other pets, the baby dinosaur is immune to damage (including from enemies) and despawns upon player death, Desktop version unless in the pet slot. This item can only be obtained by putting Silt, Slush, or Desert Fossil into an Extractinator. Placing Silt or Slush into the Extractinator only gives a 1/5000 (.02%) chance to reward the Amber Mosquito, however, the odds improve to 1/1666 (.06%) for Desert Fossils.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This item is a reference to the book/movie Jurassic Park, by Michael Crichton, and the following movies, where dinosaurs are cloned using blood found in mosquitoes trapped in amber.
