Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Phiomias can yield a lot of hide, however, they run from players when attacked.
  • Parasaurs hold no inherent danger, as they will flee upon initiating, often getting itself stuck on rocks or trees. This opens it up to be easily killed or knocked out.
  • The Dodo and Lystrosaurus are both good sources of Hide early game.
