The team at ARK just released a new Dino Dossier, welcome the Iguanodon!
Common Name: Iguanodon
Species: Iguanodon Vicissitudinis
Time: Late Jurassic
Of the many creatures I’ve yet encountered on the Island, the Iguanodon Vicissitudinis has the distinctly versatile ability to change its primary method of locomotion according is momentary needs. While bipedal, it can employ rapid stabbing attacks with its distinctive thumb spikes. In quadrupedal stance, conversely, it seems to have an endless supply of stamina, even while sprinting!
Interestingly, the Iguanodon’s thumb spikes also provide it with the capability to pick seeds out of fruits, allowing a farmer to handily convert stacks of fruits into stacks of seeds for planting. Combined with its highly effective fruit harvesting and substantial carry weight, the Iguanodon’s excellent mobility in bipedal stance make it an ideal field-hand that can also pull off a quick get-away, or an agile defense, when needed.
Primarily a rather lethargic quadrupedal herbivore native to the Island’s many grasslands and forests, in situations where increased speed or maneuverability is called for, it will quickly shift its posture into bipedal stance and behave like a very different creature!
