I had the pleasure of befriending one of these animals. Despite popular opinion, I find ichthyornis birds to be quite charming and graceful. So much that I found myself taming one. After he woke up, I saw a fire in Greg. From then on, we would be best friends. He’d come with me everywhere. From simple resource gathering to Bronto taming, Greg would be there supporting me from my shoulder. When I was too tired to go fishing or hunting, Greg was there to do it for me. He even makes the effort to make sure I get the best meat out of it. He is a quick learner, he went from from level 20 to level 40 in a day. Anywhere I go, he comes. Anything I need, he makes it his top priority. To this day, Greg continues to be my best friend and sometimes we just hang out on the beach or go fishing even when the resources aren’t needed. I thank Greg for his time with me and his endless favors that he has completed for me. Thank you, Greg.
Just tamed one of these myself, after reading the story of Greg I decided there was only one name suitable for this creature. I love My Greg so much, he is amazing. Shortly after I tamed him I was out gathering with him perched on my shoulder when I was attacked by a group of compys, Greg instantly Launched himself off my shoulder and flew into the air with on in his Jaws while my raptor killed the other 2. I've never enjoyed watching something that has attacked me die so much.... Until a couple minutes later. A Dilo ran up and before it could even blind me Greg swooped in and grabbed him up in his Jaws flew into the air and tore him to shreds. 10/10 would tame a whole battalion of Greg's.
Also they are great for catching fish and taming otters.
Cloud flew overhead as the human walked down the beach looking for reasorces. Cloud spotted a dilo sneaking up on the human. Cloud cawed a warning and snatched the dilo as it was about to bite the human. Cloud threw the dilo to the ground, knocking it unconscious. The human walked up to the dilo and put some meat it its mouth. The dilo woke up after awhile and looked at the human. Cloud flew down and landed on the humans shoulder. The dilo looked at cloud with an uncomfortable look in its eyes. "Cloud, meet Vine. He's with us now." The human said, noticing the confusion on his face. "Why isnt he attacking you?" Cloud asked. "Because I tamed him." The human replied. "Have you ever noticed that you feel like you should protect me?" The human asked. "Kind of." Cloud replied. "Well thats because I apparently tamed you." The human said. "How?" Cloud asked. "Well how you tame stuff is you knock them out and feed them, and then when they wake up, their tamed." The human replied. "I never got knocked out." Cloud stated. "Well, thats why im not sure how i tamed you. Also, i never told you my name. My name is Bob." The human replied.
Wielder of The Artifact(btw this takes place on lost island)
Cloud swooped down to try to steal from a survivor when he saw 2 bright yellow eyes staring at him from the humans shoulder. Cloud shrieked and took off. Little did he know it was just a sinomaratops. Cloud noticed a raptor attacking one of his kind and flew over. He swooped down and opened his mouth to bite, when his mouth grew into a size big enough to grab the raptor. He grabbed it and flew back to the air. Cloud was confused on how it happened, how on ark did his mouth grow? He dove down and slammed the raptor into the ground so hard it killed it instantly. What had that stone done to him? He decided to try something new. He spotted a beach bob(yes even dinos calls them that) and swooped down. He opened his mouth and yet again it grew into a big enough size to grab the human. Cloud scooped up the human and it screamed in terror. "Shake out your pockets or die!" Cloud cawed, not expecting him to understand. To human looked at him in terror and started throwing stuff out of his pockets. Cloud looked at him, realizing the human understood what Cloud said. "You can understand me?" Cloud asked. The human nodded and pointed to the ground. "Oh, yes, i forgot." Cloud put the human down and his mouth shrank back to normal size. The human looked at cloud in confusion. "Look man, i have no idea im doing it either." Cloud said. Cloud thought about what to do next, when he realized working with the human could prove useful. "Hey, do you want to stick together?" Cloud asked. "Sure, as long as you dont try to eat me like the dilos." The human replied. This would be the start of a journey Cloud neved wanted to be apart of.
Cloud swooped down and snatched a stone a human was holding. He felt a weird tingling and then the stone disintegrated. He flys forward and feels a sudden boost of energy aswell as being able to fly faster. What new abilities does Cloud have? How will he use his newfound abilities?
Guys, I just stole the best idea! On the carno page, everyone is saying, PUT BRUCE WAYNE INTO THE ARK ANIMATED SERIES, and I thought hey, why don’t we ask the same thing for Greg?!?! Continue asking wildcard if you want it to happen. Even just “ark should add Greg to the animated series” will do. I just want more Ichthyornis popularity points. Grow the community! (Yes, I know that last part sounds capitalistic, and l’m pretty sure that wildcard made this app so just flood these chat things and maybe they’ll hear us)/side note, OG owner of Greg, if you don’t want Greg in the series, just ask, as I’m pretty sure most people on this chat line are awesome people and will understand/
