Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Dossier[edit | edit source]

This dossier section is intended to be an exact copy of what the survivor Helena, the author of the dossiers has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creatures.

Wild
Among the most vocal creatures on the island, Ichthyornis Piscoquus is actually a relatively normal seagull. Living near the beaches, it primarily eats fish, and its distinctive cries can be heard echoing over literally every beach across the island. As you might expect from a seagull, Ichthyornis will flee at the slightest provocation.
Domesticated
Ichthyornis surprised me by being a very loyal and social creature, once tamed. It likes to ride on its owner's shoulder, and bring that person treats (in the form of fish, of course) which its beak-grip enhances with extra healing vitamins. The personality of Ichthyornis reminds me of a housecat hauling a dead lizard back to its family, except bringing extra-healthy fish instead.
Known Information
Ichthyornis is an excellent fish hunter, often catching and killing small-to-medium fish in one attack. Its primary method of predation is to dive into the top layers of water and impale or bite its prey. When looking for fish, Ichthyornis will often just fly in circles over the water and wait for its next opportunity to dine.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Ichthyornis are a common sight on the coasts of the ARK, and players will often hear their squawking over the pounding surf. They resemble standard modern seagulls in all aspects, but one. They bear rows of serrated teeth within their beaks - the perfect tools for gripping on to slippery fish.
