  1. This is for Ark 1 or 2 This is unique creature that is found on mountains and beaches this creature requires bug repellent to tame cuz it's a agressive creature.Use Raw Meat to Lead it to a corpse that will tame it.It prefers Diplodocus or bronto corpse and it will tame it instantly,but smaller corpses will tame it much slower and player would need more of them. Stats Health:1500 Stamina:450 Speed:100% Food:4500 Damage: -Bite does 108 damage and also has bleed effect that does 120 damage which is 228 damage in total weight:650 Torpor:9500 Saddle is learnt at level 84 and need 65 experience points Materials for saddle: 45 metal ingot 1000 fiber 450 hide 35 oil 200 silica pearls 150 sparkpowder saddle can only be crafted at smithy Special abilities: Agressive Roar -Boosts stats by 50% -eyes turn glowing red -duration:120sec -Drains 400 stamina -Usable every 10 minutes -charged with focal chill Drops: raw prime meat 8-20 raw meat 36-44 Hide 65-70 Keratin 20-34 more description: this creature has small spikes from head to tail. This creature is completley immune to any stuns or debuffs. Great to use in boss fights. Its roar would also buff tamed creatures around it when tamed. You can only bring 1 in a boss arena and 2 in tek cave. When this creature is riden no creature would agro on a player or a dino. This creature passivley creates keratin in its inventory which makes it unique. The downside of this creature is that is really rare and you can only find 3-5 per map. These creatures can breed but to imprint a baby it requires 250 prime meat or 500 prime fish meat. This DLC is for all devices. Creature is vulnerable to fire so fire will do 5% more damage to this creature. But this creature has infinite oxygen but it isn't an aquatic creature.
  2. This creature is medium sized with rough skin and 1-2 horns on its nose. Paleontologist believe it had brows above the eyes similar to the Allosaurus. The creature is a well known theropod and has been a favorite of mine for a while now. This creature generally could run 20-30 mph. The creature is commonly 1,200 pounds or 0.6 tons. It has 4 fingers and is roughly 15-19 feet tall or 4.9-6 meters. The Ceratosaurus is a carnivorous creature that mainly hunts small herbivores but would also attack larger ones such as the Triceratops. The Ceratosaurus tended to live in forests and planted areas during the late Jurassic. This would be a fun creature to be added to the Ark and could be another smaller source of keratin. Image of unreleased Ceratosaurus dossier
  3. Carcharodontosaurus Ignitus This thing has a weakspot: the neck pouch. Spits oil at enemies and then makes sparks with teeth to set em ablaze entire parts of the map are covered in oil from these bois yes very dangerous
  4. Here’s my submission: Aerosteon is a large, yet slender, theropod with unique traits. It has, most notably, huge hooked claws on the first two digits of each hand that boast a wicked sharpness, as well as air sac filled bones that make it both much lighter than others it’s size and more temperature resilient than other dinosaurs. The specific species found on the Ark, Aerosteon multigladius, has taken its resilience to the extreme. Given the amount of dangerous creatures roaming the Arks, especially in a place such a Fjordur, Aerosteon’s unique air sac filled bones give it the edge. It can hyper-regulate its temperature in either direction to heavily resist any directed attacks composed of ice or fire, nearly completely neutralizing any assault of that nature. Since the animal also breathes through the air sacs in its bones, it has enhanced respiration and is immune to narcotic gases and poisons. Its other characteristic trait, the claws, deal the majority of its damage since it has a naturally weak bite. As a wild dinosaur, it takes a lot of pride in its extremely sharp claws. So much so that it will only hunt unarmored creatures as to not risk dulling them. That means if you are wearing Chitin, Flak, Riot, or Tek, Aerosteon will not consider you prey and will leave you be unless provoked. However, if you seek to tame one, that will require stripping down to your rags and putting yourself in the crosshairs. Once an unarmored individual is its sights, you must skillfully block it’s devastating claw swipes with a shield to dull its claws (metal shields providing the most dulling points). When it stops it’s assault to resharpen its claws, that’s the time to step in and offer food for passive feeding until tamed. When tamed, the claws provide two separate utilities: sharpened, and dulled. Claws retaining sharpness can be used to weaken enemy or wild creatures and players. Each slash wounds for a stacking vulnerability debuff, allowing yourself, your tribemates, and your other tames to do increasingly high amounts of damage to the target. 5 armor weakening vulnerability stacks could be the max, at which point your allies and mount would be doing critical damage negating most saddles and natural armor, though these will need to be continually applied to keep the damage boost at its peak. This is also something that could prove useful to boss fights, as another creature to help in those fretful moments. When dulled (by not sharpening through the behavior menu on the creature), the claws become blunt force weapons. In this state they provide their own stacking effect with each hit in lowering the movement speed of anything they hit, along with rapidly breaking enemy armor. It also gains a much higher knockback in this state. Overall I think this could be a fun Dino and a unique enough theropod for submission! Here’s some supplementary info on the real animal: http://www.prehistoric-wildlife.com/species/a/aerosteon.html https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/a-light-quick-killing-machine-32217325/
  5. Time: Late Cretaceous Diet: Carnivorous Temperment: Aggressive Location: 40-50 Latitude, 10-20 Longitude I would really like majungasaurus in Ark as I have thought of a pretty cool features for it. Firstly, the reason I chose an island is because I wanted it to stay true to it's original location (Madagascar) Secondly, if it is possible or not too OP, could it have a Tek saddle which would give it a laser horn (I always thought it looked like a unicorn) The saddle would be similar to a carnotaurus saddle but would wrap itself around the horn and tuck itself under it's smol arms In terms of attacks, it's primary attack would be a generic bite while it's secondary would headbutt similar to the pachy's but with only a step forward (somewhat induces torpor). It's tertiary attack would be a headbutt and bite but it uses up more stamina than the other two attacks. See below: (Sorry I only have paint and aren't a good computer artist please understand) It will have decent stamina, very good attack but mediocre health They would travel in pairs or trios but will occasionally attacks each-other due to their cannibalistic nature. BE WARNED: If these are added they will attack other tamed majungasaurus regardless if they are owned by your tribe or not. Here is all I have for my essay, I really hope it gets added as it is one of my favourite creatures (dino-wise) Thank you for reading! Sincerely, TheCarnoGamer (I felt I needed to add this )
  6. Since we already have Spinosaurus and Baryonyx in the game, I did not see why we couldn't have the other well known member of the Spinosauridae family. Hopefully people will agree on my ideas that would make the Suchomimus unique compared to the many creatures that already exist in ARK. If you have any form criticism then don't be afraid to put it in the comments as long as they're not blatant hate or super aggressive. Real Life: Suchomimus tenerensis was a large theropod dinosaur closely related to the bigger Spinosaurus while living in the same time and place of Early Cretaceous Africa and even had a more Crocodilian-like snout compared to others of the Spinosauridae family. With the nostrils being somewhat close to the eyes as well as the mouth containing around 122 conical teeth it is safe to determine that Suchomimus was primarily a piscivore like its closest relatives. Wild: While not as agile as the Baryonyx nor as strong as the Spinosaurus, the Suchomimus is a true terror to the fish and other amphibious creatures that dwell in the rivers and oceans and are known to be extremely territorial to other terrestrial carnivores and won’t hesitate to even fight those that are larger than itself such as the Rex or Spino, and of course won’t think twice to kill a human. While humans are able to outrun a Suchomimus, it is never a good idea to go into a body of water, if it’s deep enough for the Suchomimus to swim in, you’re in trouble as it is extremely flexible in the water, able to quickly turn around in order to fight whatever was trying to hit it from its behind. Suchomimus is somewhat of a rare creature, only been seen living in the swamps, rivers, or even more rarely near the ocean. How to Tame: KO strategy, can only be tamed by using prime fish meat or Superior Kibble, but can eat other forms of meat after taming. Domesticated: While a domesticated Suchomimus is a very rare sight, those who managed to tame one use the creature as a small mobile fishing boat, while it’s not big enough to put a proper platform saddle on it, some survivors have made smaller, ‘micro’ platform saddles primarily used for carry fishing equipment, as well as having mounted fishing rods attached to the sides of the saddle, and with the enhanced abilities while swimming in the water, the Suchomimus can be used to travel into the open ocean or some large body of water as a living fishing boat as mentioned before. Primary Attacks: Can bite with its mouth and can use its claws to swipe at players or other dinosaurs, the bite does less damage than the compared to the claws but cost less stamina. Ability One: While not having a tail stun or infinite oxygen like the Baryonyx, the Suchomimus is able to perform as a radar of some sorts in the water, similar to the Parasaur, but instead of detecting hostile dinosaurs, it is used to detect any form of fish in a certain radius, while giving detail on their size and how much fish meat they’ll contain if killed, this can be used if the Suchomimus swimming in the water or simply just standing in the shallow end of a river or lake. (Would perform an animation where its mouth would open in the water if it was in shallow water.) This ability would cost a very small amount of stamina, however. Ability Two: Despite not being a more complicated ability like some other creatures, the Suchomimus will collect both more fish meat and prime fish meat compared to other tamed creatures as long as it’s from a fish, including Megalodon and Leedsichthys and will also perform bleed damage to the mentioned fish creatures, making it well suited on taking on swarms of Mantas or Sharks, but will cost a lot of stamina in the process. (Only the bit attack can perform bleed damage.) Weaknesses: On land the Suchomimus is somewhat sluggish, not as much as a Megalosaurus but definitely noticeable to the point that most would be able to easily run away from the creature such as Humans or even Parasaurs, not to mention that in the wild Suchomimus have poor stamina and somewhat mediocre stamina regeneration, making the dinosaur somewhat only useful in the water (stamina depletion is decreased if it is swimming in the said water.) Though thanks to its large health pool and decent damage, it is still able to handle itself against most carnivores such as Carnotaurus and even a pack of Allosaurus if the mentioned Suchomimus is a high enough level.

  7. Look, I know we all kinda hate insects, but think about just how cool and different this would be. I know I'm late and I really don't have a lot to go off of, but this thing would be like a mantis and a Rex in one. Not so good at harvesting, but great at pvp and boss fights. Let the imagination run wild with this one, and thank you to Ryaquaza1 for the concept art off of google. Thought it looked pretty awesome. Idk I just think something drastically different is ok every once in a blue moon.
  8. Forward Have you ever heard of the Yamatosaurus Izanagii? Origin of the name The "Yamato" in the genus name Yamatosaurus is the Japanese proper noun "Yamato" (倭, Yamato, etc.), which was one of the representative names for the country of Japan during the Yamato period." The "saurus" is a taxonomic Latin noun suffix "-saurus" derived from the ancient Greek common noun "σαῦρος (sauros)" meaning "lizard", which means "reptile", but since it is often used for dinosaurs, it can be interpreted as "dinosaur". Izanagii In Japanese mythology, Izanagi and Izanami, who became husband and wife, jointly created the "Ohayashimas" or the islands of Japan. In other words, it was Awaji Island. Based on this "story of the opening of the earthly world," Awaji Island can be regarded as the "origin" of the Japanese islands, and the dinosaurs related to the "origin" of the Hadrosauridae were produced from Awaji Island. Yositugu Kobayashi and his colleagues paid attention to this fact, associated this species with Izanagi, and adopted the god's name as the species name. Why did I recommend this species? As a Japanese, I have no reason not to let the world know about a dinosaur with which such a remote place has such a connection! I want this dinosaur to be recognized by dinosaur fans in Japan and even the world. Research report on the Yamatosaurus Name:Yamatosaurus Species:Yamatosaurus izanagii Habitat:Late Mesozoic Cretaceous (Late Cretaceous) Feeding habits:Plant-eating Temperament:neutral (Fugitive under certain conditions) Wild Yamatosaurus lives in herds of about four in relatively sunny grasslands and sand dunes with other herbivores. Sometimes, however, they also stray from the herd. These strays are so timid that even the dodo will startle them and they will run away. It is common to see them lying down after a few hours, exhausted. At this time,the survivor can tame them by feeding them a small amount of stones that serve as stomach stones and a large amount of potatoes, their favorite food. In captivity The Yamatosaurus is very healthy and will be a most excellent companion for us survivors. They are also very strong, and will not be intimidated by metal construction materials. This makes them perfect for expeditions and moving bases. They also have a large flag on the left side of their saddle to show that they belong to the tribe, and you can use the flag as a blanket to snuggle up to the Yamatosaurus in cold weather. P.S.: Studies have shown that the snoring of the Yamatosaurus has a special structure that allows it to cancel out the roars of Parasaurolophus and Eutyrannus. This would allow them to sleep in peace without being detected by hostile tribes. wiki link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamatosaurus 原文 序文 みなさんは、ヤマトサウルス・イザナギイを知っていますか? 名前の由来 属名 Yamatosaurus の "Yamato" は、大和時代における日本の国名の代表的な一つであった日本語固有名詞「ヤマト(倭、大和、ほか)」である。"saurus" のほうは、「トカゲ」を意味する古代ギリシア語普通名詞 "σαῦρος(サウロス)" に由来する分類学用ラテン語名詞接尾辞 "-saurus(サウルス)"であり、「爬虫類」を意味するが、恐竜に用いられることが多いため、「恐竜」と意訳して差し支えない。 イザナギイ イザナギイは、日本神話において、イザナギは、夫婦となったイザナミとの共同作業で「大八島/大八州(オホヤシマ)」すなわち日本の島々を創り出すのであるが、この国生み神話における「島生み」で、いの一番に生み出した島が「淡道之穂之狭別島(アハヂノホノサワケシマ)」すなわち淡路島であった。このような「地上世界の開闢譚」から淡路島を日本の島々の"原初"と見做すことができ、ハドロサウルス科の"原初"に関わる恐竜がその淡路島から産出したわけで、小林快次らはそこに着目してイザナギと本種を関連付け、神の名を種小名に採用した。 この生物を推した理由 私は、一日本人として、世界にこのような辺境がこのようなご縁のある恐竜を知らしめない理由なんてないじゃないですか!? 日本の、いや世界の恐竜ファンにこの恐竜を認知されてほしいです。 ヤマトサウルスの調査書 名称:ヤマトサウルス 種:Yamatosaurus izanagii 生息時代:中生代白亜紀後期(後期白亜紀)末期 食性:植物食 気性:中立(特定の条件下で逃走) 野生 ヤマトサウルスは比較的に日当たりの良い草原や砂丘で4頭ほどで構成される群れを作り、他の草食動物と共に暮らしています。しかし、時にまた群れから逸れた個体も存在します。逸れた個体は、とても臆病でドードーにすら驚いて逃げていきます。 逸れた個体は数時間後、疲れてしまい横になる光景がよく見られます。この時にサバイバーは胃石となる石を少量と彼らの大好物のジャガイモを大量に食べさせることで、飼い慣らすことができます。 飼育下において ヤマトサウルスはとても健気で私達サバイバーにとって最も優れた相棒となるでしょう。そして、彼らはとても力持ちであるため、金属の建材などを持たせてもびくともしません。これにより、遠征や拠点を引っ越しするのには最適です。 そして、サドルは二人乗りであり、左側に大きな旗を下げていて、トライブに所属していることを示したり、その旗を毛布代わりにして寒い地域でもゆったりとヤマトサウルスに添い寝されましょう。 追伸:ヤマトサウルスのいびきはパラサウロロフスやユウティラヌスの咆哮を打ち消すことでのできる特殊な構造を持っていることが、研究で判明しました。これによって敵性トライブに見つかることなく、安心して寝ることができるでしょう。 wikiのリンク https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/ヤマトサウルス
  9. WILD: Orkoraptor cryofjurdensis is a terrifying and horroryfic predator, a new species of the genus Orkoraptor, this terrifying dinosaur is one of the creepiest creatures on the ark. Orkoraptors have a massive distribution in Fjordur, but this distribution is limited to dark places in all biomes, specimens of this genus seek all dark places in their territory, this specific behavior is due to their ability to camouflage themselves as a xenomorphic creatures. in all the great shadows and darkness to take his victim by surprise. They attack their prey with all their arsenal, the claws of this creature are possibly the largest claws of all the theropods in the arks in proportion to their body, these claws can catch small creatures and do great bloody damage to their rivals and victims larger, also the feathers of this dinosaur have a poisonous liquid, this poison is probably the best defense against the great tribes in the ark, this substance reacts in an anti-flammable liquid so flames and tek weapons are useless against this animal However, this adaptation makes the orkoraptor vulnerable to simple firearms such as shotguns and rudimentary equipment. I must talk again about camouflage, it is almost invisible when darkness comes, this is probably an adaptation of its nocturnal behavior, when this camouflage is most effective, fortunately members of this species prefer solitary territories, so not all places in the ark are extremely dangerous. However, this predator can go anywhere outside its territory when one of them needs food actually is necesary talk about it social behavior, this is quite unique, like a band of crows, orkoraptors can hunt in packs, but opportunistically, when night comes, and if a sauropod or large creature walks around it position , orkoraptor takes the opportunity to do a bloody hunt with all the members of their species to kill animals bigger than them, this does not mean that they cannot hunt in packs also when the prey is smaller than them, but this situation is quite rare. .. depending on where the prey is. Although the Orkoraptor has a great distribution around the ark, these creatures prefer cold and humid places, that is because mammals are their favorite prey, so if a survivor goes to the other cold dimension in this ark, care must be taken with the Orks. DOMESTICATED: tame an Orkoraptor its not easy, but its a pretty popular creature in all the mid tier tribes, it skill to be inmune to the tek weapons its probably the reason of this, attack a tek tribe with an Orko small pack its the easier way to take control of a greate base, the tek turrets are usless against this dinosaurs, and it camuflage make the Orko undetectable to a normal turrets, the only way to defense a greate base from this killer is use fire elements to bring light and ruins its almost perfect camuflage, also its poison feather porduce a corrocive react on the skin tissu of all suvivors, so if you try to kill a orkoraptor with primitive or a melee weapons, you probably get a bit of hurting damage, fortunately, this poison corrosive liquid is not efective when the survivor is on his saddle, and when the Orkoraptor is appased with its owner, the venom its pretty less dangerous, so the owners can pet its orkoraptor pretty frecuently if they want. Furthermore, all the exaggerated super-predatory characteristics of this creature, like other members of the neovenatoridae, make it an excellent and faster assassin, and its stealth abilities provide an opportunity for Make a surprise attack on other creatures and survivors, with this creature you have a murderer with the ability to inflict great damage, also if you tame three Orks you can have a gang of apex predators, but tame more than 3 Orks might not be a good idea, their predatory abilities and sagacity make all the other creatures in the base potential prey for these creatures, however, if a tribe tames more than three, the Ork limit will be higher for a massacre to happen. To tame an Orkoraptor you must steal an egg (not fertile) with an Ork egg, the survivor can make a recipe to make a soup, when you eat it, you will get the same smell of an Orkoraptor, when you find your orkoraptor, you must kill large creatures for it, after that you must stroke it once, and then repeat this process every time you kill a large creature for him, if you stroke him more than 1 time and kill no more than 1 prey for it, the Orkoraptor will disappear or .. you will probably die this is just a suggestion if you want share your ideas please do it ^^ i made a proto dossier xdd i dont have time to make a better one sorry xdd Fan proto-dossier By Tyrannus Dante xd Art By Teratophoneus on Deviantart
  10. Corythosaurus: The "Snack that Fights back" Abstract: The Corythosaurus Maximus is an absolute force to be reckoned with, being one of the only herbivores that can claim the title of being able to fend off groups of Raptors, Carnos, and Allos. Additionally the Corythosaurus will be the dinosaur to break the stigma of Herbivorous dinosaurs, especially hadrosaurs, being Defenseless. Corythosaurus Maximus has excellent Stamina, High Health, Mediocre speed, and Great Attack, being lethal in some circumstances. It has the ability to perform directional attacks, all varying in damage capabilities. Its secondary attacks are what make it so dangerous however, being it utilizing its massive size and stature to deal great knockback to any who oppose it. Yet another interesting part about the creature is its special ability: "Persistent stance", which allows it to buff it and its teammates' Stamina Regen and Damage Resistance, allowing its team to last longer in battle. In the wild, Corythosaurus often live solitary or in pairs, and on occasion, group up in numbers anywhere from 3 to 10! With the largest and most powerful individuals having increased Stamina regen and Damage resistance given to by the rest of the herd. All in All, the Corythosaurus is one of the most durable, and hard-hitting herbivores of Fjordur. Introduction: Are you tired of the all-too-common stigma of Hadrosaurs being perceived as "Weak" or "Defenseless"? Or rather the over-centralized meta centered around Carnivorous dinosaurs? Well Corythosaurus Maximus is here to fix that problem! Another Giant Herbivore comparable to the Yutyrannus in size, Corythosaurus Maximus towers above the various other herbivores of Fjordur, only being outshined by the Absolutely massive Diplodocus and Brontosaurus. It is Moderately aggressive in nature, having similar habits comparable to the Therizinosaurus; Docile, until you get too close... The Corythosaurus is an All-around great tame, having Excellent Health, Stamina, and Attack. Speed: Its High Stamina allows it to be Perseverant and determined when squaring off against perceived threats, being able to deal high amounts of damage in various ways (more on that later o0o). As a callback to retro-hadrosaurs, Corythosaurus Maximus can be semi-aquatic when necessary. While not as good in the speed department as other Semi-aquatic mounts, most notably Spinosaurus and Sarcosuchus, it has enough speed in water to outrun things it can't handle on land, like Tyrannosaurus. In terms of Overall speed(land and water), Corythosaurus is a moderately slow dinosaur, primarily relying on its Amazing Stamina to trek great distances. That being said, It isn't slow to the point of annoyance (**cough cough Armored Herbivores and Sauropods**). Essentially, Corythosaurus is in a situation where it can outpace the things it can't fight, but has more than enough power to fight the things that are faster than it. Health: Being a large Herbivore, it's only natural for the Corythosaurus to have a high health pool, allowing it to endure group attacks. Its high health ties closely with its crowd-controlling abilities. Damage: This is where the fun stuff comes into play. One notable feature players will notice when fighting with the Corythosaurus is that it has directional attacks, meaning that when your camera is faced in a certain direction, the Corythosaurus will perform an attack in that direction. Allow me to elaborate further: Looking Directly forward and doing your Primary Attack prompts the Corythosaurus to Bite its attacker; does moderate damage Looking to the left or right and doing your Primary Attack prompts the Corythosaurus to slash/push its attacker; does low-moderate damage Looking Directly behind you and doing your Primary Attack prompts the Corythosaurus to do a deadly Donkey Kick; does high damage/knockback, potentially lethal for Raptor-size mounts and smaller. This smoothly transitions to its secondary attack(s): Crowd Control. When performing the normal secondary attack, the Corythosaurus will attack and deal knockback in one of two ways, both as deadly as each other: Performing your Secondary attack while looking Forward prompts the Corythosaurus to Body slam anything in front of it, dealing good damage and moderate knockback. Performing your Secondary Attack while looking backwards prompts the Corythosaurus to use its MASSIVE tail and flings any poor soul very far away from where you are; dealing High damage and even higher knockback. Special Abilities: So as we've established, the Corythosaurus is an absolute unit. To help solidify that some more, the Corythosaurus' unique ability is called "Persistent Stance". When enabled, it prompts the Corythosaurus to get on all fours and Roar furiously, buffing its own and fellow teammates' Stamina Regeneration and Damage Resistance, allowing Corythosaurus to aid in large-scale battles with lots of people involved. This combined with the Mammoth's Drums, and the Yutyrannus' Roars, can make for one hell of a team. The Cooldown for this ability is comparable to the Parasaur's intimidation Roar. Taming: The Corythosaurus is your standard knockout tame, preferring the more exotic fruits and vegetables in its environment, however it won't discriminate when fed meat, seeing as many herbivores of the modern day occasionally munch on meat for extra protein, you can also feed the Corythosaurus meat, but will work to lesser effect when compared with other options. One thing you'll need to look out for however, is that while Corythosaurus are mostly solitary, Corythosaurs will sometimes form groups of anywhere from 3-10, with the most powerful individual having buffs in Stamina Regen and Damage Resistance. While it is Preferred to tame at least two Corythosaurus to keep this buff, Corythosaurus still functions Well on its own and doesn't rely on said buff (**AHEM ALLOSAURUS ANYONE? jk jk**). Environment and Habitat: The Corythosaurus is a common sight in Plains when in large groups, but 75% of the time you'll find Solitary Corythosaurus wandering the more temperate parts of the map. Special Items?*(Optional): Being Called the "Helmet Lizard", When killed, the Corythosaurus has a 50% chance to drop a "Corythosaurus Crest", which is a vital Component when making the "Corythosaurus Club". Conclusion: The Corythosaurus would be an excellent addition to ARK for many reasons. First and foremost, It'll have the honor of breaking the in-game stigma that Herbivorous dinosaurs, especially the Hadrosaurs, are weak and defenseless (Thanks a lot Para), and show how truly dangerous, yet helpful, these dinosaurs can be. On top of that, It would go nicely along with the rest of the colorful cast of ark, being a truly giant and majestic sight to encounter(but don't get too close!!) in ARK. I hope you enjoyed reading this. I genuinely would like to see this amazing dinosaur finally get some love and be implemented into the game, if you'd like to, go ahead and vote for this lad! I'd greatly Appreciate it! P.S, Stay safe out there,

  12. The first Madagascan creature. Though aepyornis is probably interchangeable with a moa. I imagine they could function the same way. As a mount they'd be slower than a galli but more maneuverable, being able to turn on a dime. Their claws would do bleed, making it a great hit and run creature (maybe even let them pierce armour), and as a gatherer they'd be great for getting rare plants, with them being more likely to get them than other creatures. In the wild they're usually sitting on their nests and attack things that get too close. The main use of the elephant bird would be its eggs. I can definitely imagine it being an egg based tame like deinonychus, but more so once you have an aepyornis, it would generate unfertalised eggs in its inventory over time (the explanation being they get caught in its feathers). These eggs would be able to provide buffs to movement speed and melee damage upon consumption by carnivores, omnivores and players, as I think Ark is lacking in the buffs department despite the many boss fights. At your base the aepyornis can be told to sit and it will generate a nest, or will sit on the last nest it generated. Now the eggs in its inventory, will go into the nest and from the nest can be made into extraordinary kible. Whilst the aepyornis is sitting on the nest other eggs can be placed in it and incubation times are sped up. Finally, this may be a bit OP, but it could be very useful and cool, if the egg in its nest finishes incubating and then you take it out within the vicinity of the aepyornis the baby will auto imprint. But the imprint buff only activates when the creature is around, or you're riding the aepyornis. So basically, I imagine the aepyornis as Ark's giant, motherly chocobo that can hold itself in a fight. Thoughts? "Aepyornis - Wikipedia" https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aepyornis
  13. Laellynasaura is a medium-sized Ornithscian found in arctic regions. They are bipedal and substantially larger than their real-life counterparts, being about three times larger, enough so to be rideable and comparable to an in between of the Pachy and Utahraptor. They are speedy and have a quick turning radius. They are covered in fur and their color palate is usually white or grey with highlights of black and light blue. They are normally passive creatures, but will defend themselves if attacked, they also have a unique reaction to flamethrowers, alight oil and torches, being that of fear. Harvesting their bodies reward fur, raw meat, and hide. They are tamed passively and by feeding them iced water jars. Their saddle is unlocked at level 50 and crafted in the smithy. They have an incredible ability to run on water, near identically to the real world Basilisk lizard. However, unlike the similar ability that the TEK leggings offer, Laellyenasaura can stop and move at a more controllable pace on the water. They also get a speed and damage buff when in the arctic regions or in/on water, much like the spinosaur. Their fur also is uniquely qualified to hold cold temperatures, making them a semi-natural fridge. Attack 1: Bite; the Laellynasaura bites the area in front of itself, dealing little damage. Activated by pressing Right Click, LC or Right Trigger. Attack 2: Back Kick; The Laellynasaura kicks behind it with one leg, dealing medium damage. Activated by pressing Left Click, RC or Left Trigger. Ability 3: Water-walk; this toggles the Laellynasaura’s ability to walk/run on water. Can be toggled with C, RC or R3 Jump: The Laellynasaura can jump by pressing A, X or Spacebar. Other: Laellynasaura serve as natural fridges for water containers and berries. Dossier “Common Name: Laellyna Scientific Name: Laellynasaura Aquaambulans Temperament: Defensive Time Period: Early Cretaceous Diet: Herbivorous Wild Laellynasaura Aquaambulans is a bizarre little critter found in the arctic regions of the Ark. Despite their bipedal nature, they are most closely related to the Iguanodon. Their feet are specially designed and similar to the Basilisk lizard of South America, allowing them to run on water. Due to their even more specialized feet, they can even just stand or walk on the water. They aren’t very high on the food chain, but their speed allows them to stay ahead of lower predators such as Sabertooths or Direwolves. Domesticated After taming these quick and cunning creatures, the ability to maneuver over water is at your command. Their natural affinity for the element, solid or liquid, also makes them fairly useful combat mounts. Their mobility, paired with their fridge-like coat make them one of the best non-flyer transport mounts and can pack a surprising punch if used correctly.” General Base stat description: Health: Low to medium Stamina: High Oxygen: High Food: Medium Weight: Low to medium Melee: Low to Medium Speed: Medium to High Misc: Laellynasaura require very cold temperatures for their eggs to incubate. Laellynasaura are resistant to Managarmr beams and Ice Amargasaurus quills, while it is immune to Ice Wyvern breath. Laellynasaura take extra damage from Torches, Flamethrowers, Fire, Fire Wyvern Breath, Fire Amargasaurus quills and Magmasaur attacks. Laellynasaura’s name roughly translates to Water Walking Laellyn’s Lizard. The Laellynasaura has four color regions, being its scales, head patterning, stripes, and feathers. Note: The attached image is a recreation of the real life Laellynasaura. it does not perfectly describe its look in this suggestion.

    Common Name: Therizinosaur Species: Therizinosaur Multiensis Time: Late Cretaceous Diet: Herbivore Temperament: Aggressive Wild: I’m not entirely sure how Therizinosaur Multiensis stays populated on the island. It is surprising slow for it’s size, and is a solitary creative (so no pack to back it up). I suppose the fact that it’s sheer power rivals Tyrannosaurus us the only thing that allows this very aggressive medium-sized herbivore to thrive on the island. The claws of Therizinosaur are some of the most versatile biological tools I’ve encountered, as adept at removing trees and foliage from Therizinosaur path as they are at piercing the thick shells and hide of the island’s most defensive creatures if backed into a fight. Domesticated: A tamed Therizinosaur is one of the most versatile mounts a survivor can have. It can be trained to use it’s claws brutally or delicately, allowing the rider to primarily harvest the specific kinds of resources that he or she needs, with abnormally extreme of resource that he or she needs, with abnormally extreme efficiency. And in combat, these same claws can piece straight through. The toughest armor. This flexibility more than makes up for it’s inability to carry the large loads of the islands many herbivorous pack beasts.

    Common name: Allosaurus Species: Allosaurus Therotribus Time: Late Jurassic Diet: Carnivore Temperament: Aggressively Social Wild: Smaller but faster than tyrannosaurus, larger but slower than Carnotaurus, Allosaurus Therotribus is the island's resident pack-hunting theropod. While most aggressive theropods are relatively solitary creatures, Allosaurus lives in groups of 3-4. One Allosaurus is the alpha, while the others are its mates or a beta male. Like humans find value in forming a tribe, the Allosaurus has evolved to hunt in packs. Its saw-shaped teeth leave its prey bleeding and maimed, making escape difficult. Once an Allosaurus slows a creature with its cutting bite, the rest of its pack quickly close in for the kill. Domesticated: Not everyone thinks a tamed Allosaurus is ideal. Those who value speed generally tame Carnotaurus, while those who value raw stopping power tame Tyrannosaurus. However, Riders of Allosaurus tend to value the utility of its Alpha pack status, which along with its bleed-inducing attacks and relative mobility, can effectively turn the tide of a combined arms battle.

    Common Name: Troodon Species: Troodon Magnanimus Time: Late Cretaceous Diet: Carnivore Temperament: Nocturnally Aggressive Wild: Quite possibly the most intelligent non-human creature on the island, Troodon Magnanimus is an incredibly fast learner. It understands meaningful experiences much more quickly than other creatures (including humans), and its social nature means it also teaches its pack mates, making them more clever too. If Troodon’s cleverness didn’t make it formidable, than its tactics and biology do. It specifically pack-hunts at night when we are most vulnerable, and sees humans as its primary prey. This audacity is made especially dangerous due to its serrated fangs’ poison, which drains stamina from any creature, but outright paralyses humans. Thankfully, Troodon is fairly small. Were it larger, it might well have become the dominant creature of its ecosystem. Domesticated: I thought Troodon simply could not be tamed, until I finally saw a lone survivor with one. She told me that she let “Troody” hunt a few of her tribe’s smaller creatures for sport, and it eventually started following her everywhere. It seems that while Troodon is too intelligent to fall for the rote conditioning of ‘tranq-and-feed’, it can instead gradually gain loyalty from a social approach that provides it the opportunity to hunt. Ever since, I have wondered at the benefits that a pack of ultra-smart, bred-for-battle Troodon may bring to a tribe brave enough to earn the favor of these clever carnivores.

    Common Name: Pegomastax Species: Pegomastax Fructarator Time: Early Jurassic Diet: Herbivore Temperament: Defensive Wild: Among the bottom of the island’s dinosaur food chain is a small herbivore called Pegomastax Fructarator. It is content to spend all day alone, gorging itself on far more food that you might reasonably expect for a creature of its tiny stature. It’s beak appears perfectly evolved for collecting food from plants while avoiding the indigestible fibrous strands. Pegomastax is likely to ignore any nearby creature and continue foraging, unless it is attacked. At which point, it turns into a very aggressive (though rather nonthreatening) opponent, shrieking and wooping far above it’s actual threat level. You would expect a creature this small and weak to live in flocks, but Pegomastax seems to be fairly solitary in nature. Domesticated: While not pretty, and far too small to ride, tribes often keep Pegomastax around as a kind of farming aid. It’s skill at scavenging means that it collects an extraordinary quantity of seeds and berries, while also handily gathering the rare flowers, mushrooms, and other ingredients necessary to cool up unusual conceptions.

    Common Name: Iguanodon Species: Iguanodon vicissitudinis Time: Late Jurassic Diet: Herbivore Temperament: Reactive Wild: Of the many creatures I've yet encountered the island, the Iguanodon vicissitudinis has the distinctly versatile ability to change its primary method of locomotion according to its momentary needs. While bipedal, it can employ rapid stabbing attacks with its distinctive thumb spikes. In quadrupedal stance, conversely, it seems to have an endless supply of stamina, even while sprinting! Primarily a rather lethargic quadrupedal herbivore native to the island's many grasslands and forests, in situations where increased speed or maneuverability is called for, it will quickly shift its posture into bipedal stance and behave like a very different creature! Domesticated: Interestingly, the Iguanodon's thumb spikes also provide it with the capability to pick seeds out of fruits, allowing a farmer to handily convert stacks of fruits into stacks of seed for planting. Combined with its highly effective fruit harvesting and substantial carry weight, the Iguanodon's excellent mobility in bipedal stance makes it an ideal field-hand that can also pull off a quick get-away, or an agile defense, when needed.

    Common Name: Ankylosaurus Species: Ankylosaurus crassacutis Time: Late Cretaceous Diet: Herbivore Temperament: Docile Wild: Unlike many of the herd animals on the island, Ankylosaurus crassacutis tends to live in small family units. I believe they can afford to stick with smaller groups because of their incredibly thick skin for which they're named. Despite not being among the largest of the islands herbivores, the Ankylosaurus is one of the more difficult Creatures to take down. Its thick, armored skin seems to make it more than a match for several of the mid-sized predators that would otherwise hunt it. Reckless carnivores are just as likely to hurt themselves on Ankylosaurus' spikes as they are to get hit by its tail. Domesticated: Without a doubt, the best trait of a trained Ankylosaurus is its enormously dense tail. This tail is powerful enough to shatter the resource-laden rocks of the island. One of the wealthier human tribes on the island utilizes a squad of Ankylosaurus in its mines and quarries.

    Common Name: Baryonyx Species: Baryonyx Aquafulgur Time: Early Cretatceous Diet: Piscivore Temperament: Passive to land creatures, but aggressive to water-dwellers Wild: Like the Carnotaurus, Baryonyx Aquafulgur is one of the smaller end of the tier of large predators. While not as powerful as some deep sea predators or Spinosaurus, Baryonyx is an extremely fast swimmer who is still nimble enough to threaten most creatures on the island. And yet despite being a fast, dangerous dinosaur, Baryonyx almost exclusively eats fish & other water-dwellers. The highly specific metabolism of Baryonyx seems to allow it to heal wounds almost preternaturally fast after feeding on nutritious fish meat. Perhaps this is why Baryonyx rarely attacks land animals? Domesticated: Baryonyx's natural affinity for aquatic predation means that once tamed, it learns to kill ocean-dwellers more efficiently. Between its speed and its power, Baryonyx makes an ideal choice for anyone interested in frequently moving between water and land travel with ease, and valuing speend and agility over raw strength.

    Common Name: Carnotaurus Species: Carnotaurus pressor Time: Late Cretaceous Diet: Carnivore Temperament: Aggressive Wild: Carnotaurus pressor is an interesting creature that falls between medium and large predator. It lives primarily on flat clear ground, where it can capitalize on its speed. Additionally, it seems to have no qualms about running from larger predators instead of fighting. The horns of the Carnotaurus seem to be used more for fighting rival Carnotauri (Carnotauruses?) than actual hunting. This doesn't mean the horns aren't dangerous, though; they can still eviscerate larger prey. Carnotaurus is one of the smaller and more compact of the large predators. If Tyrannosaurus is the "Lion" of the island, Carnotaurus would certainly be the "cheetah". The real threat of a Carnotaurus is not being able to escape it once it sees you. Were it not for the creature's extremely long down-time after sprinting, it might be among the most capably balanced mounts. Domesticated: Carnotaurus fills a very specific role. Larger and almost as fast as a Raptor, smaller but much faster than a Tyrannosaurus.

    Common Name: Brontosaurus Species: Brontosaurus lazarus Time: Late Cretaceous Diet: Herbivore Temperament: Docile Wild: Among the largest creatures I've seen on the island, Brontosaurus lazarus is larger than any sauropod I've read about. In fact, the dinosaur is so massive that it ignores most other creatures. I've seen a pack of Raptors tear apart smaller Dinosaurs while Brontosaurus continues eating, seemingly oblivious to the hunting pack. The Brontosaurus is extremely protective of its eggs and will attack if provoked. However, some may think this is an Apatosaurus, Dreadnoughtus, Argentinosaurus, or other sauropod - but this is a strange island and I'm the one doing the research. I'm convinced that this genus is Brontosaurus and no one can tell me otherwise. My study, my rules. Domesticated: Because of how docile it is, Brontosaurus makes the ideal pack-animal. Peaceful tribes use it to carry incredible quantities of resources, while warring tribes use it to mobilize their army. Unfortunately, its enormity means that most attempts to tame Brontosaurs can take longer than almost any other creature on the island.

    Common Name: Compy Species: Compognathus curiosicarius Time: Late Jurassic Period Diet: Carnivore Temperament: Curious Wild: One of the smallest predators on the island, Compognathus curiosicarius can be seen as a pet, a pest or a threat. While alone, Compsognathus is not dangerous or aggressive. In larger packs, however, it remembers its carnivorous nature. After a group of Compsognathus grows to a certain size, their pack mentality always seems to embolden them to "attack". For some reason Compsognathus is not naturally afraid of humans. Rather it seems to be quite curious of humans and their instruments of survival. They tend to be drawn toward humans out of this curiosity, and then call their pack mates to help explore their discovery. This usually leads to the aforementioned pack aggression. Domesticated: Compsognathus's can be tamed quite easily, so some tribes keep them for little more than friendly companionship. However they gain increasing significant attack power and speed when close proximity to other Compsognathus, as their pack aggression takes over their behavior. Additionally their distress call carries quite far, rapidly alerting the tribe and its pets to danger more efficiently, and increasing the likelihood of forming a so called 'Compy Gang'.

    Common Name: Dilophosaur Species: Dilophosaurus sputatrix Time: Early Jurassic Diet: Carnivore Temperament: Skittish Wild: Dilophosaurus sputatrix is a strange creature. It stands at just over half the size of known Dilophosaurs, and runs from aggressors as often as it fights them. Dilophosaurus sputatrix has a few traits not common in the Dilophosaurus genus. It has a very shrill call, and a decorative ridge of skin on its neck. I believe these are used to attract mates, as well as intimidate prey and would-be predators. Instead of attacking its prey outright, Dilophosaurus sputatrix spits venom to weaken and paralyze it before moving in for the kill. Domesticated: Because of their shrill cry and their ability to attack intruders from range, Dilophosaurus seem most suited as "guard dogs". Due to their small size, they are not suitable as mounts.

    Common Name: Diplodocus Species: Diplodocus Insulaprincep Time: Late Jurassic Diet: Herbivore Temperament: Naive Wild: Despite being one of the Island's larger creatures, Diplodocus Insulaprincep is among the Island's smaller sauropods. Instead of the size and intelligence, Diplodocus developed faster maximum speed and greater endurance. When fully matured, it generally only reaches about two-thirds the size of the rather enormous Brontosaurus. Diplodocus is another creature whose continued survival on the Island confuses me. It's a very thick-headed and trusting animal, often to its fatal detriment. It usually doesn't flee from predators until after they've attacked it repeatedly, preferring instead to make numerous fruitless attempts at friendship. For some strange reason, Diplodocus trusts humans so much that it doesn't seem to fight back against them... ever! Domesticated: Due to Diplodocus' smaller frame, it cannot support the type of 'platform' saddle that other large creatures can. To make up for this, many tribes instead use a three-seater passenger saddle that allows Diplodocus to carry two additional riders. These passengers often use ranged weapons to protect the creature, or to attack nearby enemies while on the move!
