Acrocanthosaurus
NoteHelena.png
Wild

Appearing much larger than expected, Acrocanthosaurus is a fearsome carnivorous theropod. While larger than a Rex, it's not quite as strong. However, Acros' seem to demonstrate much stronger attacks the smaller their target is. In addition to this, when an Acro begins receiving damage, Acro resort to an interesting tactic which involves revealing the larger sides of their bodies, mitigating the damage they receive considerably. If they remain in this state the Acro seems to undergo a terrifying enraged state... so be careful. Normally being slower than a Rex, this rush of adrenaline will make an Acro frighteningly fast!

Domesticated

Acrocanthosaurus appear to be immune to the typical method of applying narcotics. I have met few survivors which have managed to tame these beasts however, and they claim that you can knockout an Acro by forcing narcotics down its throat as it gains its rush of adrenaline... no thank you... That being said, I have no doubt a tamed Acrocanthosaurus would prove very useful in combat, if its tanking and adrenaline can be utilized properly.

Archelon

Wild

Archelon Physicorum is a kinder denizen of the deep. With a massive and thick carapace, Archelon survives exclusively on a dite of Cnidaria. These giants are often found in a group with at least one additional specimen, deep in the Islands waters.

Most likely due to their diet, Archelon are immune to the effects of torpor and tranquilization. Luckily, taming an Archelon can be done by hand, and only requires a hefty amount of time, and biotoxin...
...lots and lots of biotoxin.

Archelon appear to possess the ability to gain unprecedented amounts of strength when they consume their favorite prey. Once they devour the corpse of a Cnidaria, Archelon have shown an increased resistance to damage, and a tremendous increase in their own attacks.

Domesticated

Once they've had their fill of biotoxin, Archelon show great promise as undersea mounts. While they maintain their additional perks consuming Cnidaria, they also gather an incredible amount of biotoxin themselves, making them vital for creating huge quantities of shocking tranquilizer darts. On top of all this, Archelon can seat an additional 4 survivors atop their saddle! I would consider it foolish for a tribe to not have at least one Archelon available to them.

Brachiosaurus
NoteHelena.png
Wild

Towering over other creatures of the Island and Abberation, Brachiosaurus is a sight to behold. Being a mostly docile herbivore, Brachiosaurus can become very defensive when threatened. With a thick scaly hide and its massive size, few creatures can defeat this behemoth. Brachiosaurus have been observed to briefly take a bipedal stance, rising up on its hind legs in an act of defense. From there, they use all of their body weight to unleash a catastrophic stomp on their attackers. In the unlikely possibility that a Brachiosaurus is in mortal danger, they will let out a magnificent bellow, which seems to frighten even the most powerful predators.

Fortunately, this bipedal state is also the Brachiosaurus' weakness. Provoking the dino into this stance allows survivors to target its hind legs, which are supporting all of the beasts bulk. With enough damage, the Brachiosaurus will collapse into a an unconscious state, allowing for taming. When tamed, Brachiosaurus seem to have a proficiency in gathering all resources. Whether it be stone, metal, wood, or fiber and berries, Brachiosaurus can gather it all quite efficiently. This, coupled with its extraordinary carry capacity, make them powerful tames for resource gathering and mobile storage.

Domesticated

Brachiosaurus make for excellent tames in gathering and storage. While there are better alternatives to damage, Brachiosaurus is nothing to sneeze at. You would do well to be prepared against a hostile Brachiosaurus.

Deinosuchus
NoteHelena.png
Wild

I though 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 but 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!

Domesticated

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.

Xiphactinus
NoteHelena.png
Wild

Xiphactinus Velox is an frighteningly fast creature lurking in the Island's oceans. Most often appearing in groups, xiphactinus can quickly overwhelm its victims in numerous piercing bites. Luckily, Xiphactinus seem to be one of the few creatures in the oceans that are outwardly hostile to other sea life. On several occasions, I've noticed shoals of Xiphactinus attacking megalodon, and even plesiosaurs! Be glad that these speedy beasts would rather fight the Megalodon closer to them!

Domesticated

Xiphactinus aren't very sturdy, but in groups they can cause some considerable damage and pretty effortlessly overwhelm an opponent with speed. If not used for combat, Xiphactinus are perfectly suited for quick navigation around the Islands waters as well. I will reiterate, however, the importance of leading a group of Xiph!
