A lonely rock drake walked into The crowd moving to the Abberation Trench on Valgrueo. They arent allowed to come, so he snuck in. The crowd walked and finally came to there. They moved in just as a baby raptor was born. Said raptor loved to adventure, so the little raptor and his siblings from across the map walked to the trench. The other two died fighting a giga (they grew up along the journey) but the little clever female escaped. She walked and saw the trench, and went in. As she was clever, she escape bigger predators. She walked into the mushroom forest and saw a rock drake, a male who looked sad. They talked and apparently the rock drake, named Zoomer, had lost his family before hatching. The humand took him but dropped him whilr they were fighting something. The raptor, named Cinder, told him about how she and her sibs were adventurers, but they died coming here. They became friends, and then mates. Zoomer died fighting off a bunch of karkinos and defending the nest. Cinder escaped with the eggs and made it to the White Cliffs, settling in and hatching the eggs. They turned into deinonychus and lived across the map. The spirits of them lived on and watched as their descendants killed every last survivor venturing in their territory.
The mouths are deep underground, the rock part is an anchor so they don't sink too far, that way they can get to the level of soil with the pepperiest pebbles and the chewiest chubers. . .
I'll show you this diagram of the anatomy of an ARK rock:
O - rock
| - Tail
( ) - Lil' pot belly
'o' - derpy mud gobbler
I am losing braincells and laughing on the floor at both of your "arguements"
I feel like DAN(dododex lord) should stop this this is getting WAY TOO FAR
DTG, you don't know how hard I am laughing right now. Also, sTOP aCTinG lIkE a ImMaTUre ChIlD oR I wIll flIp a TaBle aT yOu
P. Metallica, rocks have no mouths therefore they cannot eat dirt and have no digestive system. They are probably more like plants in a way they have microscopic things that might be similar to a plant's but different, since the structure would probably not be able to be a plant and support all of that with nothing that looks like it could get sunlight or air, although it could have a stone stem and roots, but roots wouldn't really be possible since when you mine rocks they flip over without any roots. So it could be a new fungi or huge bacteria, or kingdom, even, if it were to actually survive. By the way, I know you were probably joking.
DTG, remember that these yuties are waaayyy bigger than a real yutyrannus, and bigger creatures usually have longer lifespans(humans and koi carp are exceptions, but remember for their families they are pretty big species),
a real yutyrannus (nine meters long) could likely live twenty five years if it wasn't eaten as a chick(and, yes, I do refer to baby yuties as chicks)
A Yutyrannus saevus, the ARK yuty, is. . . Maybe. . . Eighteen meters or more, if we look at the lifespans of similar sized creatures, for instance, bowhead whales,
the yuties could have a lifespan of about one hundred and fifty years taking into account the fast growth speed, although judging by the fact seasnake said Blicket and Wildew were only juvenile/adolescent a few years later,
They could easily live for. . . Oh. . . Three hundred years, give or take about a hundred depending on their luck
I once had a deinonychus named midnight. He went everywhere with me. Then one day my cousin decided that while I was offline he would take him out for a walk. Long story short he got lost. Never did get a death notification. At least if I had I could have some peace knowing he is in a better place.
