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.


I thought Sarcosuchus Excubitor was the largest crocodilian in the Island's Swamps, that is until I encountered Deinosuchus Sanguineus. Massive and bulky, Deinosuchus is quite slow, but should not be underestimated when pursuing possible prey. I've heard some survivors speak of a resemblance to "Foot-Biters," but have yet to encounter such a creature.

Deinosuchus appears to be a bit more aggressive than Sarcosuchus. While not as fast, they definitely pose a greater threat due to their violent, gashing bites. Even the ferocious Rex seems to crumble to fiercer individuals, so make sure you're prepared if you wish to battle one of these aquatic reptiles!


Deinosuchus excels in most of Sarcosuchus' perks, with the exception of speed. Both in water and on land, Deinosuchus Sanguineus is one of the most powerful battle mounts found on the Island, and can trivialize threats both land and sea.

~ Helena

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Deinosuchus generally tends to swim around swamps, rivers, and oceans, hunting for prey.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Deinosuchus appears as a bigger Sarco. The Deinosuchus's jaw appears differently though.

Color Scheme and Regions[edit | edit source]

This section displays the Deinosuchus's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Deinosuchus. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Deinosuchus will randomly spawn with to provide an overall range of its natural color scheme. Hover your cursor over a color to display its name and ID.

Server admins can use this region information in the Console Command "cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID>".
For example, "cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6" would color the Deinosuchus's "underbelly" magenta.
