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.
Forest dropped the rune into the sack and quickly swung it over his shoulder, settling it in place. Not losing this again, he thought with determination.
Coal skidded passed Crimson to a second exit on the other side of the room. He gestured his head for them to follow, and slipped out of sight.
Crimson and Bramble were first. Spark was second, and then Forest made his way for the exit. Rust and Nyx followed close behind him.
Coal was moving quickly, sprinting through the halls, checking behind him to make sure Forest and the others were following. He took a left turn.
Forest sprinted up closer to Crimson and Bramble, who kept scanning the surrounding halls and rooms for any Terror birds. All was silent. Forest couldn’t help imagining the tiny Terror bird hatchling, screaming as she ran to find her parents. They need to get out of here before everyone knew.
The prince took another left, and the others followed.
Out of the corner of his eye, Fores tjrouced the rune in the sack was glowing bright again. Rust—who was behind him, gave the sack a puzzled look. Nyx noticed too, but instead of looking confused, her eyes widened and she glanced around.
“HEY!” A dark brown Terror bird appeared in the other end of the hallway, her spear tilted upright. “What do you think you’re doing?” Everyone skidded to a stop in front of her.
Coal inhaled sharply and everyone turned to run—but then another Terror bird stepped in behind them. There was only one way out now. Coal spread his wings menacingly, hissing at the soldiers.
“Prince Coal?” One soldier asked.
Coal stared at her, his face a mask of terror and guilt.
The rune in Forests sack grew brighter and brighter. Nyx gasped and backed up away from it. Crimson snarled at the soldiers, thumping her tail on the ground.
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/
I was going about my business, when yet another Ichthyornis tried to steal my stuff. I didn't have any other ranged weapons on me, so I shot him with my Tranq Crossbow, and somehow, he was knocked out instead of dying. Naturally, I went to tame him, and I decided to name him Tobi. Fast forward a bit, and an Allosaurus pack has wiped out all my dinosaurs, except for my fresh Basilosaurus, and for some reason, Tobi. I decided then to give him the adult name of Tobikomu, with him now being my oldest dinosaur. Even to this day, amidst my vast herd of tames, Tobikomu still holds a special place in my heart. Thank you, Tobikomu, my happiest little accident.
