Dino Dossier: Coel – Fish

Common Name: Coelacanth
Species: Coelacanth nutritia
Time: Cretaceous-Holocene
Diet: Omnivore
Temperament: Reactive
Domestication
Tameable: No
Command: admincheat summon Coel_Character_BP_C
  • Wild: Coelacanth nutritia is one of the few creatures on the island with a relative that can be found back home. The Coelacanth lives in the waters around the island, as well as the rivers and lakes within the island. Unlike most Coelacanth, Coelacanth nutritia meat contains less oil and urea. In fact, it is one of the healthier sources of meat on the island.
  • Domesticated: While Coelacanths cannot be tamed the way most creatures on the island can, they provide a possible source of meat for coastal tribes that have the time to catch them.
  • Known Information: Most Coelacanths are opportunistic feeders that eat anything smaller that itself, likely including baby water snakes, insect and plant life, and perhaps each other?

Dino Dossier: Carnotaurus

Common Name: Carnotaurus
Species: Carnotaurus pressor
Time: Late Cretaceous
Diet: Carnivore
Temperament: Aggressive
Domestication
Tameable: Yes
Rideable: Yes
Saddle: Carno Saddle (Lvl. 50)
Command: admincheat summon Carno_Character_BP_C
Alphacommand: admincheat summon MegaCarno_Character_BP_C
  • Wild: Carnotaurus pressor is an interesting creature that falls between medium and large predator. It lives primarily on flat clear ground, where it can capitalize on its speed. Additionally, it seems to have no qualms about running from larger predators instead of fighting.
  • Domesticated: Carnotaurus fills a very specific role. Larger and almost as fast as a Raptor, smaller but much faster than a Tyrannosaurus.
  • Known Information: The horns of the Carnotaurus seem to be used more for fighting rival Carnotauri (Carnotauruses?) than actual hunting. This doesn't mean the horns aren't dangerous, though; they can still eviscerate larger prey. Carnotaurus is one of the smaller and more compact of the large predators. If Tyrannosaurus is the "Lion" of the island, Carnotaurus would certainly be the "cheetah". The real threat of a Carnotaurus is not being able to escape it once it sees you. Were it not for the creature's extremely long down-time after sprinting, it might be among the most capably balanced mounts.

Dino Dossier: Carbonemys – Turtle

Common Name: Carbonemys
Species: Carbonemys obibimus
Time: Danian
Diet: Herbivore
Temperament: Defensive
Domestication
Tameable: Yes
Rideable: Yes
Saddle: Carbonemys Saddle (Lvl 25.)
Command: admincheat summon Turtle_Character_BP_C
  • Wild: Carbonemys obibimus is one of the least aggressive creatures on the island. Were it not for the plethora of predators on the island, I'm certain it would spend its days basking in the sun, eating, or sleeping. Carbonemys leads a simple, solitary life. It seems to be one of the most peaceful animals I have yet encountered.
  • Domesticated: Carbonemys ' swift swim rate, fairly high strength, and lack of real threat makes it an ideal aquatic mount for many coastal survivors who shy away from violence. It can carry its rider to the ocean's resources at a fairly high speed, and are not particularly dangerous to tame.
  • Known Information: With its slow walking speed, the only things that keep it safe are its surprisingly fast swim speed, and its incredibly thick shell. I would not be surprised to see a Carbonemys withdraw entirely into its shell and be completely safe from most predators.

Dino Dossier: Brontosaurus

Common Name: Brontosaurus
Species: Brontosaurus lazarus
Time: Late Cretaceous
Diet: Herbivore
Temperament: Docile
Domestication
Tameable: Yes
Rideable: Yes, by multiple
Saddle: Bronto Saddle (Lvl. 55)
Command: admincheat summon Sauropod_Character_BP_C
  • Wild: Among the largest creatures I've seen on the island, Brontosaurus Lazarus is larger than any sauropod I've read about. In fact, the dinosaur is so massive that it ignores most other creatures.
  • Domesticated: Because of how docile it is, Brontosaurus makes the ideal pack-animal. Peaceful tribes use it to carry incredible quantities of resources, while warring tribes use it to mobilize their army. Unfortunately, its enormity means that most attempts to tame Brontosaurs can take longer than almost any other creature on the island.
  • Known Information: I've seen a pack of Raptors tear apart smaller Dinosaurs while Brontosaurus continues eating, seemingly oblivious to the hunting pack. The Brontosaurus is extremely protective of its eggs and will attack if provoked. However, some may think this is an Apatosaurus, Dreadnoughtus, Argentinosaurus, or other sauropod - but this is a strange island and I'm the one doing the research. I'm convinced that this genus is Brontosaurus and no one can tell me otherwise. My study, my rules.

Dino Dossier: Bat

Common Name: Bat
Species: Onychonycteris specuncola
Time: Eocene
Diet: Omnivore
Temperament: Aggressive
Domestication
Tameable: No
Rideable: No
Command: admincheat summon Bat_Character_BP_C
  • Wild: Onychonycteris specuncola is one of the few omnivores I've seen on the island. They seem to live primarily off the mushrooms and moss within the caves, but they attack almost any non-insect on sight.
  • Domesticated: Not large enough to be used as mounts, and not strong enough to carry much, Onychonycteris still works well as a guard animal. Whether protecting a vacant home, or members of a tribe, their relatively vicious nature has its uses.
  • Known Information: They avoid Titanoboa whenever possible which leads me to believe the snake to be a natural predator of Onychonycteris. While flying in the dark caves would be difficult for any creature, Onychonycteris ability to use echolocation has allowed it to adapt perfectly. It can be found idly flying around the caves as often as it can be found hanging from bits of the cave ceilings.

Dino Dossier: Argentavis

Common Name: Argentavis
Species: Argentavis atrocollum
Time: Late Miocene
Diet: Carrion Feeder
Temperament: Aggressive
Domestication
Tameable: Yes
Rideable: Yes
Saddle: Argentavis Saddle (Lvl. 55)
Command: admincheat summon Argent_Character_BP_C
  • Wild: Lording over the skies across the island, Argentavis atrocollum has few aerial rivals. It is a small consolation for the island's other avian Creatures, then, that Argentavis seems to have little interest in anything alive. Although they are not interested in many animals, Argentavis will attack any human within sight making them an aerial threat to many humans with basic equipment.
  • Domesticated: Argentavis is actually slower than the far more common Pteranodon, but it has significantly more Stamina, and can sustain flight for approximately three times as long. This makes them the best Creatures on the island for traveling or hauling cargo over long distances.
  • Known Information: Quite apart from what I would have guessed, Argentavis does not have the stooped neck typical of modern buzzards and vultures. It is unknown if it adapted this stronger neck to deal with predators on the island, or if its lineage comes from before the stooped neck became common in carrion-eating birds. It is a highly aggressive creature, willing to chase players long distances for simply being within its vision.

Dino Dossier: Ankylosaurus

Common Name: Ankylosaurus
Species: Ankylosaurus crassacutis
Time: Late Cretaceous
Diet: Herbivore
Temperament: Docile
Domestication
Tameable: Yes
Rideable: Yes
Saddle: Ankylo Saddle (Lvl. 40)
Command: admincheat summon Ankylo_Character_BP_C

 

  • Wild: Unlike many of the herd animals on the island, Ankylosaurus crassacutis tends to live in small family units. I believe they can afford to stick with smaller groups because of their incredibly thick skin for which they're named.
  • Domesticated: Without a doubt, the best trait of a trained Ankylosaurus is its enormously dense tail. This tail is powerful enough to shatter the resource-laden rocks of the island. One of the wealthier human tribes on the island utilizes a squad of Ankylosaurus in its mines and quarries.
  • Known Information: Despite not being among the largest of the islands herbivores, the Ankylosaurus is one of the more difficult Creatures to take down. Its thick, armored skin seems to make it more than a match for several of the mid-sized predators that would otherwise hunt it. Reckless carnivores are just as likely to hurt themselves on Ankylosaurus' spikes as they are to get hit by its tail.
