Boosts & Effects: If you catch the coelacanth fish during the event, you have the chance that it will drop special candies. You can use these useful or just do wonderful mischief with them. For example, they are an alternative to medicine and heal you, or you can give your tamed dinosaurs one of the random Valentine colors with it.

As befits a successful Valentine’s Day, love is in the air for sauropods too. During Love Evolved, dinosaurs grow up 3x faster, multiply faster and the hatching time is shortened. The taming is also three times faster and players get three times the XP and farm rate, Nice!

    I mean come on wildcard. Why are these event updates so huge?
