Nanaimoteuthis hikidai(Ancient octopus)



I suggest adding this creature to ARK.
(I can't post a topic that suggests living things to me right now, so I decided to do it here.)

An extinct vampire squid that lived in the ocean 80 million years ago, the vampire squid that lives in the deep sea today is 30 cm in length, but this species that lived in the Cretaceous is extremely large, 2.4 m in length. It is estimated to be one of the largest octopus buddies in history.
From the rocks collected in Haboro Town, Hokkaido in 1978, in 2011
A fossil of the lower jaw of this species was discovered, and in Haboro Town, he also discovered a fossil of the giant squid, and large cephalopods such as these were found in the ocean at that time.
It is believed to have been an important food resource for large marine reptiles such as the Plesiosauria and Mosasaurus.


As you can see from the image above, it is quite large compared to humans.

In the game

It will appear in the new DLC free map.
If the DLC's free map were implemented, it will probably appear in the wide and dangerous deep sea.
In ARK, I think it will be set to the same size as Ichthyosaurus.
Also, it is basically a friendly creature, and when attacked, it spits ink and runs away.
The ink has the effect of temporarily obscuring the eyes.
This effect can be applied to players, wildlife, and tamed creatures.



Basically, it is a tame that you hand over a large Toro or Kibble (Kairuku Egg) as bait.
Especially Kibble (Kairuku Egg) has the highest tame rate.
However, it is imperative that you stay with other creatures.
They are so timid in nature that they are scared and quickly run away, whether they are wild or tamed.
You need to have a safe place first, then keep the tamed creatures as far away as possible, and then approach them carefully.
If you get too close, you may run away quickly.
Therefore, first approach carefully and then hand over the food to tame.

After tame

This creature specializes in escaping, so it can move faster than anyone else.
It is possible to ride without a saddle, and even to spit ink.
It is also possible to attach a saddle, which has a jet function and a laser beam function, which can be used by consuming the element.
That is, these features are perfect for underwater PVP.

If you have any other good ideas, please let us know in the comments.
Thank you for taking a look at my idea.
