Suggestion

Introducing the Bourou, a giant snail of epic proportions (scientific name: Charonia tritonis) that will revolutionize the way you play Ark Survival Evolved. This colossal creature boasts an enormous shell that serves as both a mobile home and armored transport for players, offering unparalleled protection and mobility. Imagine having a nearly unstoppable fortress, with the ability to move around the map with ease!
 
Once tamed, players can craft a mount that offers a trapdoor access into the shell, creating a fully enclosed and impenetrable armoured transport. The shell is made of a super-hardened material that is 10 times stronger than metal, making it an excellent defence against even the mightiest of Giga attacks.
 
The large size of the Bourou also allows for players to craft a 4x4 foundation set inside, turning it into a veritable fortress. Imagine having a fully equipped base with crafting tables, storage chests, and even a bed for respawning, all inside the safety and comfort of the Bourou's shell (if game engine permits). Otherwise, its inventory system acts as a crafting platform and bed, allowing players to respawn back into it. It's the ultimate survival tool, with all the amenities of home at your fingertips.
 
But the Bourou isn't just a "fortress on wheels", it's also a foraging powerhouse. It can forage berries and thatch efficiently, and over time its inventory also increases with polymer and random types of mushrooms. With the Bourou by your side, you'll never have to worry about running low on resources again. It's like having a portable loot room, and you'll be able to gather resources more efficiently greater safety than ever before.
 
One of the Bourou's special traits is its ability to climb nearly any surface, including vertically scaling mountains or cliffs. Its large shell also allows it to trap lots of air, providing the player with a week-long duration of underwater seabed crawling, adding a new style of exploration for players. Imagine being able to explore the depths of the sea without the need for a diving suit, or traversing treacherous mountain ranges with ease. The Bourou opens up a whole new world of possibilities, and you'll be able to discover hidden locations and secrets that were previously unreachable for many players.
 
For nomads, the Bourou serves as a mobile home, and for PVP, it offers a new attack style to infiltrate even the most defensive bases. However, only a single person can reside in it at a time. With the Bourou, you'll be able to outsmart and outmaneuver your enemies, and outlast them in the wild. The Bourou is the perfect companion for players looking to expand their exploration and combat capabilities in Ark Survival Evolved. With its unique features and capabilities, it adds an exciting new dimension to the game and will take your survival experience to the next level. Get ready to dominate the game with the Bourou by your side!

*** Updates *** Thanks to everyone, great suggestions from the community and comments from Loaded Crysis YouTube mini series submission review (channel link below).

*  Change foundations from 4x4 to 2x2.
*  Bourou being a snail suffers damage while traversing over desert biome. In winter it may benefit the player as having a level of insulation to protect from the cold.
*  Possible weapon weakness to avoid OP tanking.

Thanks to everyone for the awesome support!

Si se produce otro voto de criatura, publícalo apenas comience la votación para no perderlo de vista y tener chances de ganar los votos.

If it comes aver another vote of creatures publish it at the moment that voting begins so as not to lose sight of it and have a chance to win the votes, if you can try to make illustrations of how the snail would be, the inside of the shell with foundations and without foundations, as it would look climbing mountains to have a clearer concept.

These are just ideas, well I hope you read me and think about it, best regards.

Si llega aver otra votación de criaturas publícala al instante que comience las votaciones para no perderla de vista y tener una oportunidad de ganar las votaciones.

Si puedes intenta hacerle ilustraciones de como sería el caracol, el interior del caparazón con cimientos y sin cimientos, como se vería escalando montañas para tener un concepto más claro.

Estas son solo ideas, bueno espero que me leas y lo pienses saludos
