They leapt out of the cave, landing with thuds in the dirt. Forest lifted his head, panting rapidly.
“Hault!” Yelled a voice form nearby. “Who are you? State your business!”
Out of the corner of his eye, Forest noticed a Terror bird, standing tall and scowling at the five carnivores. She looked young—but incredibly fierce and furious as she marched forward menacingly.
Forest didn’t care at the moment. He was too terrified. “What was that thing?” He gasped.
“Beyla,” Rust panted.
“I asked you a question!” The Terror bird was yelling.
“A Beyla??” Crimson roared. “They’re REAL?”
“yep,” Rust hissed as the Terri bird bellowed, “answer me you—did you say Beyla?”
And then it came.
A giant leg burst from inside the cave opening, and then another appeared, and another, and another, followed by a huge set of shaking wings as the insect clawed out of the cave, hissing ferociously.
Forest screamed out his lungs, his feathers standing up as he reared onto his back legs in fear. Rust and Spark jumped back as well, horrified.
The terror bird screeched and skidded in front of the beast in battle position, followed by Crimson as she joined the soldier, looking confident as it snarled loudly, flaring it’s wings.
Several nearby creatures cried out in fear and ran away, several others fled up the trees as fast as they could. No other Terri birds were nearby.
Suddenly hundreds of smaller bugs flew from behind the Queen, slipping around and passed her like a giant cape circular cape. A swarm turned and confronted the Terror bird and Crimson, and another, larger swarm flew straight for Forest, Rust and Spark.
Forest screamed again and bolted away, but the swarm was fast, and Rust jumped over him and turned to attack the bugs—but something strange happened.
Instead of diving and attacking straight on, the swarm dove down, and pivoted away— as if Forest or Rust had a flaming torch to drive them off.
The bugs flew up and around the two—hissing but not touching a scale or feather on them. Forest ducked and covered his head with his talons, grinding his teeth together.
“Spark!” Rust yelled. The swarm had flown away, now heading and divebombing Spark with infinite danger. Spark roared and snapped several in half—but there were way to many for her to fight alone. Rust ran forward, his claws ready to help her.
Forests instincts kicked in and he leapt on the nearest insect, killing it instantly. Bug after bug flew for Spark and Rust. Forest killed more bugs than he could count. But even more strangely, as the bugs attacked the others, they didn’t touch Forest.
He collided into another drove of Beylas and ripped the nearest one apart. As he jumped forward, the sack on his shoulder slipped, and fell onto the forest floor.
At that exact moment, bugs latched onto him and bit him hard with their pincers. He yowled with pain and rage and snapped at it’s wings, but missed as it dodged and flew away. More attacked.
To his left, Crimson was brutally slashing at the Queen Beyla. Several smaller swarms scratched her up as she bit hard into the Queens leg.
The Terror bird was wrestling with a small swarm, screeching with fury. Suddenly she leapt away and flapped her wings, letting out a ear-piercing roar that echoed through the nearby ravines and trees.
A few moments later, Terror birds appeared.
At least thirty of them stepped forward from above the ravine, all with expressions of pure bravery.
At once they joined the fight. Beylas we’re slowly disappearing as the soldiers crushed them under their claws, screeching with confidence.
At once the Beyla Queen knew this. She hissed and rattled her wings, flinging the nearest attackers off her legs and abdomen. Slowly but surely, she retreated back into her cave, calling several beyla swarms with her.
Not long after, all the bugs were gone. Broken insect parts were littered acrossed the forest floor, but none were left in the sky.
When I was lvl 13 I tamed one of these beasts, a truly incredible feat, so I named him Timmy! Me and timmy were best buds and we did everything together. I took him on walks often until one fateful day. One day I was savagely attacked and killed by a gnarly lvl 10 raptor. Timmy chased him deep into the woods and I havent seen timmy since. *IF YOU SEE THIS TIMMY PLEASE COME BACK I MISS YOU*
Hi guys it’s me the dung beetle again. My tamer now has flax armor and has spikes around the base. I’m now kept in a small cage. I almost got killed by a raptor I was very low in health and my entire body was in pain. But when raptor jumped on me the tamer went insane and cut the raptor’s head off with a sword. Glad I’m on his good side. He never took me out on adventures again with him. Which was kind of sad but I couldn’t blame him.
Hello I’m a dung beetle today I’ll be talking about well me and what has happened throughout my life. Guys just a disclaimer WE DO NOT EAT POO!! WE EAT SPOILED MEAT!! Any way back to me. I’ve been tamed just a few days ago and my owner has quit a few dinos that are scary but. When you grow up ina. Dark cave will dilos, bats, giant snakes spiders and scorpions. It was hard for me to be afraid of anything he had. Accept the tamer. He wore chitin armor which is the exoskeleton of my kind and relatives as well as the spiders and scorpions in the cave I lived in.he got me when I was lvl 16 now I’m level 18 some real progress right there. A carno tried to kill me after it broke into the base but the the tamer knocked it out but didn’t kill it. Then shove meat downer her throat as well as so sort of green liquid. The. She... liked him? She kind of obeyed his commands. My tamer says I eat her poo but I turn it into fertilizer fo his garden. And oil for something.
When I was exploring the artifact of the clever. I met this little guy halfway through I decided to tame the beetle with spoiled meat. After a while, he was tamed and I called him companion but that was short lived as I was attacked by a swarm of spiders, scorpions, and iballisks and companion was trying to kill them, you can already guess what happened...
Sup guys dung beetle here again. Today is very interesting my tamer brought a new dung beetle and gave me a name. My new name is Marco he wasn’t named the new Dung beetle yet though. But me and this New guy are great friends. We actually lived in the same area of the south cave but my tamer didn’t see him since it was so dark and he found me instead.
I watched the sun begin to illuminate the horizon with its orange glow. The waves looked so calming, but the sight of an enourmous shark jumping out of the waters to catch a seagull in middair snapped me back to the reality of my survival situation. I turned round and saw Ruby and Jude asleep, Harvey collecting berries and Dasha walking over. I looked at Ruby then Dasha. I shook my head and watched Dasha sit down next to me. I noticed Bob drooling all over the floor Next to Ruby in his slumber.
“Hey,” Dasha said.
“Hey,” I responded.
“It’s so beautiful… The ocean, the waves… so soothing.”
“Yeah… The sun rising above it all, so tranquil…”
“Agreed.” Dasha looked about and saw Flaps and Prophet comparing frills. “Do you wonder… What else is out there, in the jungle? So many different Dinos out here, so how many are in there? What if there are none? What if there’s a whole city through there?”
“Well,” I began. “Let’s see, when the others are awake. We have enough muscle and skill between us- Harvey’s got enough weaponry to kill an army, Jude says he’s used to the jungle, he should be fine- give me a sword or a weapon and I’ll best anyone here in combat. You’re smart enough to see every threat and fool every lizard, Ruby seems to be able to befriend every living thing in a 5 mile radius, and hey, we’ve got Prophet and flaps- those are prehistoric killing machines and Bob… erm…”
“Bob… keeps us morale?”
“Sure- we’ll go with that.” We laughed and woke Jude, who grunted and got up. He walked to a nearby bush and ate some berries. Bob stirred at the sound of Jude eating berries, and dragged his soggy beak across Ruby’s face as he made his way to Jude. Ruby woke up and picked up Bob, who squarked in dismay as she turned away from Jude. His little beak pointed over her shoulder and squarked at us. We smirked. “Right…” I continued. “Let’s go talk to the others.”
After a while of debate it was settled- we needed resources, and we should try to find civilisation. With no boats littering the horizon and no planes filling the sky, we had to venture inland. That’s when our little journey took a turn. We were a good few hours deep into the jungle, and we saw human tracks. At last! People. We had begun to follow them, but we heard twigs snap behind us and the Dilos gnarled their teeth and flapped their frills. From the bushes lept 6-7 people in more developped clothes than ours, and they held spears similar to ours, a few with bows instead. The leader, a man with blonde hair like mine and a full-of-himself look took off his hat and shouted at us as another 3-4 people joined him from behind.
“My name is Raphiel. Ra-Fie-El. I am your new king, emporer, so bow down and submit.” I gave him a puzzled look and burst out laughing. He snarled, grabbed his spear and thrust it through prophet’s neck- and Ruby screamed. Flaps lept up but recieved 4 arrows too his side, where he fell and died. Ruby held his body and wept. I grabbed my spear, and swinging it round to the side Raphiel blocked, swung it over his head he blocked again. I thrust it towards him and he parried, knocking me off balance. Harvey took the chance to grab my arm and pull me back as Jude grabbed Ruby, who was still holding Flaps’s body, and pull her away. Dasha grabbed Bob, who was squarking in panick, and we all rushed away. We made it too a clearing, where we collapsed and Ruby resumed her crying fit. Harvey smashed his hand against a bush full of black berries, the bitter ones I didn’t like. Bob, smelling the berries, made his way over to them and watched the fluid drip down the rock they were on, over what looked like a piece of rotten flesh and Bob took a big, long, lick. He fell unconcious and Harvey took a closer look. He dubbed it ‘tranqium’. After a few days, Ruby had made us better gear and Harvey had made us better weapons, and he gave me a strong bow and a quiver of arrows. I dipped the arrows in tranqium, and set off alone. I had seen my prey before- a raptor. I didn’t tell anyone, but there was a raptor nest and one mother with her unhatched eggs. From the bushes, I drew the string back, and let loose. After a thrilling chase, she collapsed next to the carcass of Flaps. And that is where we find ourselves- here, with an unconcious raptor, making our way to her nest. The thought of the ‘Empire’ scares us, and we keep looking over our shoulders for the inevitable arrow to smite us down.
Hey guys dung beetle here. My tamer brought in another dung beetle. And we are all now named poo dudes and we wander around his garden and sometimes munch of the tasty crops he makes. Today he tamed some new animals. He tamed up a spider and he... tamed one of the authroplura. Us dung beetle have an. Intense fear of them. Due to other large size and that horrifying acid spit they have. I’m just as scared of the. As the snakes but to have one living with us is even more terrifying.
Hello y’all it’s me the dung beetle again I’m now level 69 and this is my story as a wild dung beetle, here we go: we lived fairly easy lives in the caves I mean sure we were pretty much at the button of the food chain but we still got around we wandered in groups and defended each other it was quite hard to take down our predators but we still manage to get around. We’ve made tunneling systems to travel from cave to cave but prefer staying in the south cave it’s a bit more safe we eat the dead scraps of left overs from the predators but never eat each other we mourn each other when we die but dieting isn’t much of a problem as our lord and savior (no offense to religious people) the overseer allows us to respawn. So idk why we mourn each other, there gonna respawn anyway... I die 16 times in my lifetimes the majority of the times was to the big spiders and scorpions. But the sables take us down too the millipedes aren’t very aggressive to us at least they are to basically anything that tries to press them or enters the cave who isn’t native there. Well yeah that’s life of a dung beetle I hope you guy enjoyed also stop killing the trilobites they did nothing wrong 🪲❤️
Hey to all you fellow ark players out there if you put your Dung Beetle on wandering keep a eye on it! Because these guys will travel and I mean travel you will see how the Dung Beetles path finding is superior. I have my Dung Beetle shout out to buggy by the way and he’s usually wandering my house next thing I know he’s down the cliff past the pond and walking around. I luckily clear out all the hostiles prior before so he’s fine but I saw his name tag in the pitch dark of night and grabbed him with my argy and took him home. So if you put a Dung Beetle on wandering close all doors and stuff or his path finding will become a god and escape.
To the owner of Timmy, I have advice for you in case you still play the game. First, head home and click on the backpack icon. You will see an icon that looks like a dinosaur footprint, Click on that, and click on the tames list button. From there, find Timmy in the list (if he is still alive) and click request. It will ask you if you want to request him, and just hit ‘accept’. From here, just wait a bit and eventually your dung beetle will teleport to you (it should be within a minute, nothing crazy long)
I just tamed one of these in the south cave right after I tamed a spider. On my way out there were 5 snakes coming toward me fast!! I tried to pick the beetle up and run but it was to late… I was already knower out. I then saw two things die but I wasn’t able to read it In time. When I ran back to my base after respawning I turn around and see both beetle and spider with items from the snakes. Long story short I think they are zombies👀
