Laminacaris L. sonusrex "Thin bladed shrimp sound king" Cambrian Diet: Durophagous Temperament: docile Within the oceans and beaches are piles of empty trilobite and Sea scorpion shells and this is the culprit, a vicious predator to anything with a chitinous shell, these bottom dwelling creatures seem docile near humans as they'll even swim around survivors to snatch up a bottom feeder and break its shell open with their facial appendages. Not even the beach is safe as these creatures can scuttle onto land in pursuit of their prey where they run them down and break their shells with deadly efficiency. Though they can be tamed, some tribes do hunt them as their bodies build up large amounts of oil and pearls that they ingest from their meals and thus brings an instant bounty of rare resources to some less fortunate tribes. Taming: To those who have passed out from Sea Scorpion venom, worry no more. These things hunt the stinging buggers from a distance, clicking and snapping their appendages like a pistol shrimp would its claws, stunning or killing anything it sees as prey. If tamed, these are perfect mounts to bring to the bottom of the sea to gather resources be it from animals or the environment. They can even be trained as their strikes are able to break stone and with consistent use they can become a menace to anything with an exoskeleton and potentially more. Some tribes who have tamed these animals have even been seen harassing Dunkleosteus away from their fishing grounds so to better gather materials in relative safety. Human blood has an interesting effect on these animals as it binds the individual animal to a master so to tame them, one must have scarlet pearls, Silica mixed with blood to lure them in and pacify them. (edited) [8:53 PM] Details Mountable tame though carried similarly to the Bloodstalker. Though can't be mounted on land but can in water like Diplocaulus Has a weaker stunning sonic snap.... a projectile of sound like a pistol shrimp Has a closer mele attack like a mantis shrimp that kills Sea Scorpions and Trilobites Can go on land and in water. has a harness that holds oil to allow for an ink cloud for quick getaways. Harvests and has a carry weight reduction for Black pearls, Silica pearls, and Oil. Has an ability to get better and better at harvesting one item depending on the item constantly harvested. Kill a lot of Sea Scorpions? Then it is gonna be great at getting Chitin and both pearls hitting oil? It is now the Oil baron.
Say hello to the most useful shoulder pet- Eomanis! IRL Information________________________________________________________________ Eomanis ("dawn pangolin") is the earliest known true (and scaled) pangolin from extinct family Eomanidae (and extinct superfamily Eomanoidea) within suborder Eupholidota. It lived during the Eocene in Europe. Fossils collected from the Messel Pit, Germany, indicate that this 50 cm long animal was rather similar to living pangolins of the genus Manis, indicating that pangolins have remained largely unchanged in morphology and behavior for 50 million years. However, unlike modern pangolins, its tail and legs did not bear scales. According to the stomach contents of the excellently preserved Messel specimens, Eomanis’ diet consisted of both insects and plants. Utility__________________________________________________________________________ Early game____________ Mid chitin harvesting efficiency: Eomanis could be designed to be efficient at harvesting chitin in big quantities. This would make it a valuable asset in regions where chitin is abundant, such as caves or areas with large insect populations. Craftable cementing paste in Eomanis's inventory: Eomanis could have a unique ability to craft cementing paste directly in its inventory. This would save players the time and effort of having to gather the resources separately and craft them at a crafting station. The crafting speed will be the same as on the chemistry bench Sandstorm immunity: Eomanis could have a natural resistance to sandstorms, making the player and his rideable on land tame immune to the sandstorm event. Eomanis could have the ability to detect hidden water sources in the environment (just like ferox finds element dust) and refill any type of reservoir item, such as water skins or canteens, that are in his inventory. This would be particularly useful for players who are exploring the desert where water is scarce and difficult to find. It would also make Eomanis a valuable companion for long journeys through the wilderness. Mid game_____________ 50% weight reduction for all basic resources when on player's back and 80% reduction when on land or carried by other creatures: Eomanis could also be used as a backpack that reduces the weight of basic resources in its inventory. This would allow players to gather more resources before needing to return to their base, which can be especially helpful in the early game when resources are scarce. You can also easily access Eomanis' inventory within the R radial menu, just like with the Sinomacrops. The Eomanis can be carried by an Argentavis in his beak. This will allow the player to bring more resources back to their base thanks to Eomanis' weight reduction for all basic resources. Eomanis drops a new rare resource "Eomanis' Keratin Plates". Those plates can be used to efficently craft cementing paste: One plate= 200 chitin/keratin. This resource is also used for crafting a new chestpiece "Scale Mail of the Eomanis". This resource drops only when the Eomanis is killed with damge that he can returned back to the attacker, that means that when killed with fire, poison, explosives, or wyvern elemental attacks Eomanis will not drop the resource. Eomanis' long tongue can be used as a whip. This has all the uses of the regular in-game whip but with a longer range, dealing damage to all insect creatures and no stunning. The player can perform this attack with the "Clap" emote. Late game_____________ Doubles armor durability when attached to the player's back: Eomanis could be designed to attach securely to the player's back as a shoulder pet. When picked up, Eomanis could double the durability of all armor tiers except the new chestpiece "Scale Mail of the Eomanis". This will allow the player to use their favorite armor for longer. "Ricochet" is a passive buff for Eomanis. This acts somewhat like Kentro's ability but with a couple of twists: Thе buff is active on any Eomanis, be it wild or tame. It would cause a signifficant damage reduction, with 30% of the damage being returned back to the attacker. This buff can be shared with the player or any tame that the player can ride. Howewer, it is not fully active right away when Eomanis is picked by the player. The damage reduction portion of the buff is always active while wearing any type of armor. but the part with 30% damage return will be active only when the player wears a new chestpiece- "Scale Mail of the Eomanis". The "Ricochet" ability is especially useful in raids. This ability allows you to return damage to buildings, or rather metal turrets, allowing you to break them more efficiently. Eomanis' claws are a deadly weapon when used right. He is able to tear any armor to pieces, like paper. When thrown off the back Eomanis curls up, and if the player's aim is good enough, can cling to a enemy player for a couple of seconds like a Noglin, tearing the armor in the process. After that he will detach from the enemy player in his curled up appearance. Eomanis will remain in this form until a friendly player will approach to disable this form and pick it back up. Forms can be switched at any time whether the player is in combat or safe in his base. Scale Mail of the Eomanis__________________________________________________________ This is a brand new chestpiece that is crafted from "Eomanis' Keratin Plates". The armor's stats are somewhere in between a chithin chestplate and flak chestpiece. This armor has an ineresting ability to repel small and medium agressive creatures when the player treavels on foot. The armor is especially useful for cave exploring. When in combination with an Eomanis the creature repel ability will be disabled in exchange of the rest of Eomanis' "Ricochet" buff. The Scale Mail of the Eomanis is not affected by the Eomanis which means that this armor's durability does not double. Weaknesses_______________________________________________________________________ Eomanis cannot protect you from fire, poison, explosives, or wyvern elemental attacks. In raids, Eomanis can be somewhat countered by Plant Species Z Turrets. They won't deal full damage, but Eomanis won't be able to return the damage. Amargasaurus is the best counter for Eomanis. His armor-piercing spike disables all of Eomanis's abilities while inflicting pre-existing debuffs. Completly useless in boss battles. The player can't pick up the Eomanis when wearing the TEK cestpiece or any chestpiece with the glider wings attachment from Aberration. Taming____________________________________________________________________________ To tame Eomanis, players will need to collect a significant number of armor sets, preferably of high quality, and have a significant amount of health for tanking Eomanis' attacks. They will then need to find and approach Eomani, who will initially be hostile and attempt to attack the player. To begin the taming process, players will need to equip a full set of any armor tier and quality (The higher the quality and the tier the better. For example an apprentice set of riot armor would be the best choice for taming.) and let Eomani attack them. Eomanis can shred through any quality and tier of armor like butter thanks to his sharp claws, so the players will have to constantly replace damaged parts in order not to die and increase the taming efficiency. However, as Eomanis attacks, he gradually becomes less hostile. Once Eomanis has destroyed a certain amount of armor pieces, he will become passive and approach the player, asking for a cuddle or for their favorite treat- сhitin.

Tanystropheus is a semi-aquatic reptile with an incredibly long neck. It’s primary diet consist of fish and the occasional cephalopod. Tanystropheus, being a small and passive creature, lacks attack features, but is skilled at fleeing predators through speed. Tanystropheus, while mostly aquatic will occasionally go to the shore to sunbathe, lay their eggs or escape marine predators. while they primarily fed on fish on earth, on the island, due to the little competition , they have evolved to feed on invertebrates also, using their hook like teeth to slice through chitin armour. the abundance of food for the Tanystropheus has led to a large increase in size, so much so that a survivor can sufficiently ride one through the waters. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanystropheus
