Archegosaurus also known by it's lesser known synonymous term Menonomenos is a relatively large temnospondyl that makes its home in the Fertile and Blue lakes of aberration.

 -Blue lake variant, luminous muted alpine newt inspired pattern 

-Fertile lake Variant, smooth newt 

inspired palette 

-Sexual dimorphism I may include, females will generally have smaller tassels and will be of darker hue than males

-13 meters in length a few meters less than ark's ingame sarcosuchus 



Menonomenos will spawn solitary but you might see the occasional pairs of two. 

On occasion they go out of water more or so at night time they're up and moving about but during the day they spend most of their time on the benthic part of lakes snagging the abundant amount of aquatic fauna

Lampreys and Menonomenos have a special symbiosis in which lampreys get food and comfort inside of Meno's Jaws and the Menonomenos gets a certain chemical as a waste product of them granting it an easier time digesting food.


 A female Meno lays eggs hidden on aquatic plants and rocks, the eggs being sensitive to touch; you'll have to gain the respect of the mother to acquire one. 

Transport the Meno to a safer location via whistle within a given timeframe, Small predators will try to take the egg away from the mother

 Don't worry about larger predators when near a mother meno you'll go undetected as Meno eggs are off the menu for most large predators.


Menonomenos make for fantastic support mounts to allies being able to swiftly maneuver around the battlefield and assist those in need 

Menonos have a "Soak meter" they need a good supply of water to function 80% or more soaked will give Meno a hydrated boost increasing speed and causing them and the rider to be more slippery to catch ( Karkinos, Desmodus,PTs and Griffins have a harder chance grabbing your char)


***(Space bar)***-Mucus secretion/belly slide,pressing space bar once will have Menonomenos secrete a sticky liquid like mucus around itself 

***(Holding Spacebar)*** your Meno can belly slide using it's own mucus to slide about at fair speed

*(Left click)*-Bite which is fairly weak

***(Right click+hold)***Lamprey projectiles:

Meno can aim lampreys and spit them out using it's elastic jaws

Lampreys will stay on a target for 40s after which they'll drop off and conceal into small balls which can be picked up again

***(C)***-Spit mode switch

Spit modes include:

Attack- Lampreys will slowly drain the health of a target 

Healing- Lampreys will heal a target (could be additionally good for taming if you went a little overboard on damage and made a close to knocked out tame bloody)

Paralysis- Lampreys will inject a shocking secretion if applied enough will paralyze a target for a 20s

(Additonaly these "modes" can be turned into consumables as well, Healing elixirs, tranquilizers and more)


Meno's can be ridden without saddles but they do have a saddle that adds to the overall quality of it as a mount, it allows them to keep soaked for longer while giving them a little more protection 


Extremely good in water being able to move in almost all directions (Sideways,Back,Front, Up and Down) at a fast pace

Lampreys will become docile and attract to your mount automatically in which they can be collected via Menos option wheel. If you check it's inventory, said lampreys will be stored as icons similarly to the fish basket system, except they won't be counted as creatures sort of like an accessory. Gross but using Meno's option wheel you can breed the Lampreys inside of it's mouth
