Dinosaur of the Day #121 - Stygimoloch Gen 2

#1

Stygimoloch was a dinosaur which lived around 65 million years ago during the late Cretaceous Period. It was first discovered in the Hell Creek Formation in Montana by Peter Galton and Hans- Dieter Sues. It was named Stygimoloch—a name which means “demon from the river Styx”. It was given this name because its skull looked very much like a demon from Christian art.

Stygimoloch was a small herbivore that was approximately 10 feet long, 3 feet high and weighed around 170 pounds. It was bipedal—meaning that it walked on two legs—and had bony spikes on its skull, some of which were 4 inches long. It is believed that these horns were used by males as they competed for females.

An interesting fact about Stygimoloch is that some paleontologists now believe that what is called Stygimoloch was actually a juvenile version of a Pachycephalosaurus. At this point, it is just a theory and it hasn’t yet been confirmed whether or not this is the case.

This dinosaur probably lived off a diet of horsetails, gingkos, cycads, seed ferns and club mosses. It probably didn’t require a lot of food to keep these dinosaur alive. Probably only about 10-20 pounds of vegetation were needed a day for this dinosaur’s survival.

Never used it. Too many better options. I did level it to 20th just because it seems to be the reward I get every time from Arena incubators and I still have something like 30K DNA of it unused.

I have no experience with this thing. It took me a while to unlock(it’s lockdown exclusive), so I didn’t use it in lower arenas either.

Only ever used in friendlies for fun. There are definitely better commons out there, although when they’re all at the same level, Stygi2 isn’t as bad as some might believe.

Strongest dinosaur ever

I think another big problem with Stygi G2 is just how over saturated we are with it’s DNA because of it being so often handed out in the Arena. I’ve still got thousands of DNA that will never get used. This should have been a reward for the lower levels really.
