Dino Dossier: Megalosaurus

Common Name: Megalosaurus
Species: Megalosaurus noctedominus
Time: Mid Jurassic
Diet: Carnivore
Temperament:  Nocturnally Aggressive
Tameable: Yes
Rideable: Yes
  • Wild: Much like the Island's other large theropods, Megalosaurus noctedominus is an aggressive carnivore that should not be taken lightly. Unlike most of the other theropods, it is a primarily nocturnal creature. As dawn approaches, Megalosaurus begins looking for a secluded place to spend the day sleeping in relative safety.

  • Domesticated: While Megalosaurus is not the most powerful theropod, it is still highly sought after by night-raiders. Due to its nocturnal nature, Megalosaurus becomes much more formidable at night -- dodging attacks, conserving stamina, and attacking more accurately, to name a few of its enhanced talents.

  • Known Information: Conversely, if disturbed during the day, Megalosaurus is significantly more sluggish. Either way, however, its primary combat tactic is to bite onto its target, then lock its jaws shut in an iron-strength grip. Only larger creatures can hope to break free once Megalosaurus locks its jaw. The creature then proceeds to gnaw on its prey until death. It's a terrifying, grisly spectacle to watch, and a formidable tactic for a tribe to employ against more nimble targets.

  1. Hey, I play ark survival on Xbox one and I’ve been playing on a single player and at first I got kinda big had spinos and a few rexes and it made me create a new character after taking my Xbox to go to a friends house. Map saved but my character reset, I lost all Dino’s and buildings. A few days passed started to get bigger again and my young sister unplugs my power cord on Xbox while I was in ark survival. I get back on and this time I kept my character but whole map reset so I lost everything and even the base I had when I first started playing before character reset. This makes me really mad and it is pointless to keep playing on single player unless this is fixed and I know this has happened to others too so if you can at least make it so I can have my Dino’s back then I would be fine but pls help me this is very irritating
