- This level is very hard because of the ankylosaurus. The ankylosaurus is arguably the toughest dinosaur, matching the power of the pterodactyl. The ankylosaurus acts like a stationary Mecha-Football Zombie, but also pushes zombies. What makes this powerful, however, is that it can push zombies to the second column to the house. Plants will be pushed back, and if the lane is full of plants, a plant will be knocked off stage. Blover will be very helpful in this level, thanks to the fact that the ankylosaurus pushes zombies into the air.
- Do not plant expensive plants near the house in this level, or any other level with ankylosaurus, the ankylosaurus will likely push it off stage. Additionally, Red Stinger, if the player has it, is not recommended, as its powerful state requires to be put close to the house.
- Cactus can be used to stop the zombies pushed by ankylosaurus.
- The small number next to the zombie icon means that zombie will always appear in that lane, with 1 being the topmost lane and 5 being the bottommost one.

This strategy can beat the level without Plant Food or losing any lawn mowers.
- Required plants:
The goal setup is two columns of Primal Sunflowers, a column of Primal Wall-nuts, and a column of Cacti a tile ahead of them.
Ignore both the T. Rex and the ankylosaurus at the beginning and instead build your Primal Sunflowers and especially the Cactus line. To deal with the ankylosaurus, plant a Primal Wall-nut at the first column and keep healing it as the ankylosaurus sends a zombie and a Jurassic Conehead over to it. Kill the zombie the T. Rex rushes with a Chili Bean and leave all other zombies (including the ankylosaurus) unharmed and trapped with Primal Wall-nuts. If you let time expire into the first huge wave, the first ankylosaurus will leave without launching anymore zombies.
Charm the second ankylosaurus that appears as soon as it does. For the rest of the ankylosaurus, until the Perfume-shroom recharges, you can stymie them by just dropping a Primal Wall-nut in the eight column and a Primal Potato Mine behind it. If Primal Wall-nut is recharging, use any other plant such as Chili Bean, Cactus, or even Primal Sunflower until it is ready. Use Chili Bean and other plants to pick off threats to them such as loose Jurassic Imps or pairs of armored zombies.
When the raptor trio appears at the end, charm one of them and blow up most of the other zombies with Cherry Bomb after they are kicked forward. Finish off the remaining zombies for the final wave.
