I’ve always made creature concepts, but never have I made an entire parks worth in one place. So here it is. I have gathered the best of my prehistoric animal concepts from the past and dropped them here together.
Have you heard of it? Maybe. Maybe not. But it was a 900 lb sabre-tooth feline the world wouldn’t see anything like until the days of Smilodon.
One of my personal favorites. Tidal Giant. Such majestic.
Is it bizarre? Yes. Is that typically the draw for creatures included into this game? Also yes.
Shovel face! What’s not to love?
You might be familiar with riding these in ARK. No, they aren’t really that big. They’d still chase you away from a corpse though.
If you showed this to the taxidermist, they’d probably think you are compensating for something. You might know it from ice age art as the deer thing with a fork on its nose.
This dinosaur is inherently defined as being ugly. If you are a JWorld fan, you probably recognize it as part of the genome of Indominus Rex.
If you dunked a toad in Bane’s venom, this is what you’d get. Watch out dimetrodon.
It’s like Woolly Mammoth, except no one cares about it. It looks more like a regular elephant and lacks the Ringo Starr shaggy bowl cut.
It’s like Nodopatosaurus, but real. It really wasn’t a very big sauropod and the game would definitely exaggerate its size.
iT sHouLd bE EPiC. Not everything can be epic
First, admire my crude photo edit for that text addition. Good huh? Yes, it does say increase armor. Anyway, here is a turtle that is not a turtle.
Because Ornithocheirus and Tropeognathus deserve a rest. I bet you could barely tell the 3 apart anyway, I know I couldn’t!
It’s basically Australia’s token dinosaur.
If you rolling pin’d a turtle enough until you had a vague lizard shape, this is what’d you’d get. They were also quite selfish with their shellfish.
I can feel your glare saying it should be epic.
I feel like ornithomimids would have similar combat ability to Cassowaries and Emus. Have you ever been bit by one of those in a petting zoo? Ouch. And this thing has teeth!
It would be travesty to have a wolf in the game without at least one move that explicitly says howl.
Wouldn’t that be a sight in the game? A ceratopsian up on two legs doing pachy things.
I don’t know if it’d be feasible with its body type, but it’d certainly be cool.
Why not Albertosaurus? Because you just learned something new that’s why. Go read about this newfound creature you have just heard about. You may find yourself intrigued in the ways of science
Indigenous people really had their way with strange island birds I tell you. The largest bird to have ever lived, many knew it as the elephant bird.
How does it fight if it’s got that filter of a mouth? I don’t know, but I do know you can fight an eagle against a genetically modified turtle cat so anything is possible.
You may know it as the Elvis pompadour dinosaur.
If it shows up in the spelling bee we all lose. Despite its wild name that can not be spelled easily, it’s better known as the straight-tusked elephant. It was as large as the average Paraceratherium on any day.
The dino that couldn’t decide between being an iguanodon, a stegosaur, or an ankylosaur. It just identifies as being spiky.
The basis of tomorrow nights SyFy channel original: Megasalamanderoid. It was a huge amphib with buck teeth that would most likely try to consume you.
Can’t just let that Venomous counter move go to waste on only 1 creature right?
It’s name means hostile, as if it didn’t look hostile on its own.
I’m sure it gets local tv stations on that strange head antler crest. Good to know the weather while flying PteroSoar Airlines
Since it’s so strange compared to normal ceratopsians, why not make it a little strange?
This guy is cool, and it is fairly well known, but we never see it in any games hardly. So here. I think it’d be nice in the Bary rig.
Admittedly, the only reason I have ever heard of this thing is because of Nigel Marvin. Cool nonetheless.
Yes, I have in fact made a dinosaur you expected to be epic, epic.
It’d be nice to have a non-croc in with the crocs, and this supersized phytosaur would certainly fit the bill.
Move over Allosaurus, your lesser known and more sparsely found Jurassic predator competitor is here to always lose the match up with your Gen 2
This giant flyer was named for where it was found. Gotta rep the streets you came from.
Spinosaurus’s Brazilian cousin. Very exotic.
It had a very bizarre toy from 2001. If you actually chopped its tail off like that, it’d probably die. And by probably, I mean definitely.
Imagine the drumsticks on this chicken. 50 piece nuggets for everyone in the car! But for real, this bird would’ve been brute force incarnate.
So that is the complete tour of my park’s worth of concepts! As always my stat numbers and ideas are not perfect, but at the various times I made these I tried my best for a balanced addition worthy of arena play. So who would you keep? Any hybrid ideas you’re feeling out of this giant bunch?
