I love these creatures, just love them. I am a pretty experienced player, and I had just got The Center. I started out on a tropical island. It was a good start. I had one carrot. I saw a few of these up on a clearing. I ran over, but there were allos everywhere. I managed to sneak up to a beautiful dark brown horse. I tamed him with one carrot. I named him Smasher.
I was only like level 12 or something, so I rode him back to my thatch starter base. Then, an allosaurus sadly ran up and murdered Smasher and my base. I turned on cheats and killed every allo in the area.
⬆️ For Smasher, who fought the allo till his last breath.
1st Taming Attempt: I Find. I Get Carrots. I Try To Tame. Easy Right? *Omnious ROARRR* And I'm Like Oh S***! The Equss Refuses To Move And It Dies By A Damn Rex While I Run Away Like "YOUR ON YOUR OWN BUDDY,BYEEE." 2nd Attempt To Tame: I Find Another Equus. Get More Carrots. Successful Tame! I Run Around On This Equus For Two Days In Game. I Hear Heavy Footsteps And Turn Around Slowly And An Allo Pack Is Like , "HELLO SNACKY SNACK" My Equus Dies. And I Die. And Then I Throw My Controller At The TV Like "DAMN IT ARK CANT I HAVE A DAY OF PEACE" Ty For Wasting Your Time Reading. This Happy Trails! 😁🤣😝😎
(I'm on mobile) Once upon a time I was taming that sorta rolly polly dino that I can't spell , and I saw an equus , a majestic creature that was mainly pale , but had orange legs , I pulled out my spyglass and saw it was a level 2... but I wanted an equus so bad I didnt care. I bought 5x soothing balm and took Iggy the iguanadon and gathered some rockcarrots. After taming this trotting little guy I rode him all around , looking for a female to get some awesome mutations , I found 2 more males at Carrot cake's spawn point (I named the equus carrot cake lol)
But I couldn't find a female anywhere! 😭. 3 Days later I'm still searching for a female... Up this if females of any species are SUPER hard to find , wish me luck! ♥️
Zebra woke up and got on his feet, the other human stroked his mane and said "my name is Robert, and I just saved you from being sold to someone that would treat you harshly" Zebra then heard the flapping of wings and saw a argentavis, Zebra was scared of it, then, Robbert soothed him be saying "Midnight here is going to take you to my base" (5 minutes later) Zebra was in the base, and Midnight when into a gray building, then a what looked like a Equus with antlers came up and said "Hello, my name is Cocoa, I’m a Megaloceros from redwoods." Zebra then saw that all the tames would be his friends, he then felt breath on his neck, he turned around to see a beautiful creature, it then said "My name is Falcon, I’m a Griffin from a mountain that the humans call Griffin Mountain."
My first noble steed Zephyr was his name. He was my loyal friend until, while returning home a Alpha Raptor threw me off my saddle. I was only a level 25 so I ran, and Zephyr bravely distracted the Alpha Raptor. He sacrificed himself for me so that one day I will have my revenge.
Steven looked around the camp. There were people making new settlements, people preparing meals, people tending the wounded. Even Quinn was helping a group of people pull up the wall to a new thatch hut. "What do you do Leo? Really? I mean, no offense, but you don't look like them," Steven said motioning towards the other survivors.
Compared to the muscular fighters and long-legged hunters, Leo looked more like a reptile than a person. He was scrawny and lanky, alternated between the energy of a child on stimulants and a drowsy carbonemys, and he had the smile of a baryonyx about to pounce on its prey, but despite all that, he was clever, quickwitted, and probably the most likeable person Steven had met here, with Quinn being a close second.
Leo continued cleaning his spear and responded without looking up. "I told you, moral support." He didn't have his usually completley light-hearted tone. He seemed a little irritated by the question.
Steven leaned forward. "You okay?" he asked.
Leo looked up and flashed a smile. "Perfectly fine," he said, putting away the spear, "I just don't have a set title here."
He stood up and walked from under the tarp that protected them from the gray drizzle, all the water the sky could spare. Quinn, Roman, and a guy Steven hadn't met were walking towards them. "Leo," Quinn called. She had a grim look on her face. "We need to talk."
"Alright," Leo said, wiping his hands on a cloth. "What is it?"
Quinn cast a sidelong glance towards Steven before giving Leo a nervous look. "Elliott is missing."
Leo let out a heavy breath. "Okay… why are-"
"He had the lantern."
The confusion on Leo's face gave way to a dark look. He turned and looked back to the dark frorest in the distance. "The sun is about to set. The horseman's call has already gone out, she'll be on the hunt now."
"Which is why I came to you."
"But I can't-"
"I'll take care of the lantern," Roman said. "We'll only need you if she makes an appearance."
Leo looked around at faces around him for a moment before sighing. "I'll get my cloak."
I usually play on mobile and I usually find them in the bottom right corner of the map not on the island in the middle of the ocean though but I’m really bad at taking them I usually try and go for a high level but it never works and I don’t know how to make kibble so help is for sure needed IMAO
Steven stuffed a handful of charred dodo in his mouth and watched others socialize. Their hunting party had met up with another to settle and take a break. It was safer if they all stayed together. They had taken down two parasuars and a phiomia in total, and they had rustled up some dodos for a snack before they headed back through the dark forest towards camp.
Leo laid down the spear he had been carrying and sat down next to Steven. "Quite the wallflower, aren't you?" he said with a smile. He bit into a dodo drumstick.
Steven shrugged. "None of these people know me, and I don't know them. I can't blame them for not talking to me. Everyone seems so reserved here."
Leo sighed, "It's a dangerous world out here. You have to be careful who you trust."
Steven nodded slowly. "Well, then thanks for taking me in." After a moment of silence he looked back at Leo. "Why did you take me in?"
Leo laughed and threw a bone to the ground. "Looking a gift horse in the mouth, are we?"
"I'm not trying to be ungrateful, it just doesn't make any sense. You just said you have to be careful who you trust. It makes no sense to take me in," Steven looked adept hunters, fighters, and trackers around them. "I'm practically useless."
Leo wagged a finger, "Practically isn't actually. Don't worry, you've got a skill. We've just got to find it." He sat in a thinking pose for a moment before suddenly perking up with bright eyes. He snapped and pointed at Steven, "I know! Ribbon dancer!"
Steven rolled his eyes, cracking a smile. "But in truth," Leo said, supressing his jokester nature, "You've got a good heart. That's why I took you in."
"How could you have known that?"
Leo was silent for a moment. "You remind me of someone. My son." His bright eyes dimmed.
Steven held in a gasp. Leo didn't seem like the type who would be a father, but he did seem like he would make a good father regardless. "Did he die?" Steven asked as sensitivley as he could.
"No," Leo said with a small smile, "I just lost him, when I came here. I truely hope he never sets foot on this acursed Gray Ark."
"What's his name?"
"Alexander." A sad smile crept across his face. "I called him Lex. I haven't seen him in 16 years. He'll be 27 now, and I don't even know if I'll ever see him again."
Steven was about to offer Leo whatever words of comfort he could think of when a ghostly wail errupted from the forest. Roman stood. "The horseman's call. Time to go," he shouted out to the hunting parties. "Eric's party will go first, then Terresa's, then mine. Go."
Steven turned to Leo, "Why are we splitting up? I thought we wanted numbers."
"Out here we do," Leo whispered back, "Out here we face dangerous creatures, but in there…" he pointed to the dark forest, "More numbers means more sound. Sound is how she hunts."
Steven nodded slowly. He had learned to understand who "she" was.
"I love being an Equus" thought Zebra as he trotted along, then, suddenly, he heard something running, it was a human, Zebra scoffed, thinking that the human would try to passive tame him, but when the human got closer, Zebra saw he was holding something, and it was a longneck, Zebra ran as fast as he could, knowing that if he was shot he would be knocked out, desperate, he neighed "Help!! A human has a longneck and is trying to tame me!! Heeeeeeeelllllp!!" But it was too late, for everything suddenly went dark, he had been knocked out, and then, BAM, ahhhhhh, thud, the human had been killed, and another came to the body and said "thanks for doing the hard part" and the other human fed Zebra kibble
I had a horse named Apollo jr and he was fully imprinted. We were the best of friends. We did everything together. And he mocked out a scorpion we tamed. Then one day some guys were nere my base and I told them to go away. Apollo jr s wife was giving birth. ( yes it was) and they would not go away. Then when I atacked with Apollo jr we were winning then a pterodactyl came and killed Apollo jr. rip Apollo jr. 1 like equalls one saved equess. 5 equals 1 ded pterodactyl.

Steven found himself in a small makeshift camp on the beach, surrounded by serious looking faces. Compared to these people, Zoe and Roman didn't look so bad.
"Look at you," said Quinn with a smile. She was an elderly woman, and surprisingly muscular. Despite her age, she looked like she could take anyone in a fight and would probably win.
"A nice young person. Been a while since we had one of those," she chuckled and looked back at the trio that had brought him here. Leo was the only one who returned the smile.
Roman and Zoe looked like they would still skewer him, no questions asked.
"What's your name, kid?" Quinn asked.
"Well S-Steven, welcome to the Survivor's Band. Tell me, what are you good for? Cooking? Cleaning?"
While Steven didn't have much memory, he knew he had no skills in those areas. He didn't know these people. But they were holding weapons and he'd rather be on their side. "I don't know. Whatever you need me to do, I'll figure out how to do it."
Quinn laughed heartily and turned to Roman, "Oh, I like this one." She turned back to Steven. "Well", she said, "we can always use more fighters."
"Actually, I'd rather not fight," Steven stammered. "I'm a pacifist." That much he did remember.
Quinn smile faded for a second, and then return with a hint of smugness. She leaned and closed to Steven. "Let me tell you a story: There was once a guy who found himself in a strange place around strange people. He told them, 'I'm a pacifist!' The next day, he died." She sat back and smiled at her morbid fairytale.
Steven swallowed. "Okay, okay. I'll fight but I'll only kill animals, and only for food."
Quinn leaned forward again. "Let me tell you another story: There was-"
Steven held up his hands. Okay, okay! I get it, but I'll only fight if necessary."
Quinn laughed. "You think I made it here this long by killing recklessly? It'll be necessary."
