About Ed Thorn

Ed joined Metabomb in May 2017 and puts together guides and news across the site.

Our Red Dead Redemption 2 Dinosaur Bones locations page lists all the dinosaur bones locations across the map and will show you where to find them all.

Long before the Wild West existed, dinosaurs roamed the earth until a big ol’ meteor obliterated them all. Keep an eye out for dinosaur bones as you trot through New Hanover and you could genuinely redisover their former glory.

There are a total of 30 dinosaur bones scattered across Red Dead Redemption 2’s map, and you’ll need to kickstart the “A Test of Faith” Stranger Mission to kickstart your excavation career.

One reason you'll want to find all of the dinosaur bones is to earn the coveted 100% completion trophy. Otherwise, you'll also be rewarded handsomely for your excavation efforts. Mail off 1 bone for a Quartz Chunk, 15 for a special Skull Statue and all of them for a unique Jawbone Knife. All in all, this hunt is for the completionists out there.

Many dinosaur bones can be found on top of mountains, and some only become available once you've completed the main story. To make life easier, use Eagle Vision when you think you're close to a dinosaur bone as it'll help you locate them much faster.
