A£5 dinosaur is for life, not just for Christmas

London, UK 06th November 2009: Tired of your run-of-the-mill pets such as dogs, cats, hamsters and fish? Looking for a pet which presents more of a challenge than a garter snake or a cockatiel? Then Honeyslug have just the thing for you,“My Pet Dinosaur”! Simply load up the disc and spec out your Dinosaur!

Once your dino has hatched, you can look after it, play with it, feed it, keep it well groomed, meet its friends or have it take part in challenges. These dinosaurs also get smarter as they age, so they can sniff out treasure, find new locations to explore and catch or dig up toys to play with and cool headgear to wear.

All you need to do is take care of your dino and it will be an epic friend forever!

What sort of pet do you want? A red-kneed spider in a glass case? Or a bright blue T-Rex in a chef’s hat?

“My Pet Dinosaur” is published by P2Games and is available from the 6th November at GAME and other major retailers throughout the UK or online at www.game.co.uk for the Christmas stocking filler price of£4.99!
