Behavior[edit | edit source]
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Also known as the "marsupial lion", Thylacoleo is a powerful pouched predator native to the island's towering redwood forests, pursuing a semi-arboreal lifestyle as it chambers and leaps between the trees. A strong bite - the strongest of any land mammal - and bolt cutter-like teeth make this creature a formidable ambush predator, leaping from above to crush the necks of its prey.

Roles[edit | edit source]
- Thylacoleo could be a great war mount as implied by the dossier, it may be used to set up ambushes on other tribes. Its ability to hide among and climb trees would allow access to high up tree platforms where tribes could create hidden bases which could prove especially useful for any smaller tribe looking to hide.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]
For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Thylacoleo, see the relevant Wikipedia article
- The Thylacoleo was first revealed on September 30, 2015 
- Dossier revealed on December 14, 2015 
- Despite looking like a lion or a very large rodent, Thylacoleo is a marsupial and more closely related to Australian kangaroos and koalas.
- Thylacoleo means "Pouch Lion" in Latin, referring to its nickname as the marsupial (pouch-bearing) lion.
- Relative to its body weight, Thylacoleo may have had one of the strongest biting forces of any land mammal to ever live.
- Thylacoleo have the ability to climb trees, which may be a new mechanic that has yet to be implemented.
- Red wood trees have now been added and creatures such as the Tapejara can latch onto these suggesting a mechanic like this could happen with the Thylacoleo
- According to the dossier, Thylacoleo will be large enough to ride. This is inaccurate, as real Thylacoleos were only slightly larger than a golden retriever. The size depicted in the dossier is closer to proborhyaena gigantea, a distant ancestral cousin to Thylacoleo. Thylacoleo, however, was much more agile, and sports a bite force that was, pound for pound, one of the strongest in the animal kingdom, so it's likely not a mistake on the developer's part.
- The implementation of Thylacoleo as a fearsome giant marsupial that pounces on prey from the treetops may be inspired by the Australian stories of drop bears, a made-up marsupial designed to scare tourists.
