The megalosaurus is one of the strongest therapods, but its nocturnal sleeping pattern make it significantly less effective during the day. The megalosaurus can bite and even latch onto enemies — including humans — and swing them around, hindering their ability to move. This carnivore is stronger than a Carno or a Rex at night, but during the day, it is much more slow and sluggish.~Steel Cookie 123
problaby the most underrated creature in ark this thing is a beast, while they are hard to tame they can do up to 100 (night) and take on a rex bro they need more attention! every like is another person liking the megalosaurus
Today we will look at the utilities and abilities of the Megalosaurus! So lets start and not waste time...
1.) BUFFS- Megalosaurus has a few tricks of its sleeve, despite being quite slugish during the day, in night you should really fear them since when its night this creature will have upgraded stats on its major stats like: Health, Melee Damage, Movement Speed. Which makes it more practically powerfull. So basically if you encounter one in night your just dead like acctually you can also find them on Mobile but only spawn in the Chamber Cave (Location: Middle of Map) and only seen in the pool of waters and near the Artifact, thats why some night tribes A.K.A (Night Raiders) often use these guys during sunset since they get their buff at 10:00 in the ARK Time.
2.) ABILITIES- Ok so lers move on to this guys abilities. So basically this creature is one of the first land dinos to pick up other creatures (not to mention the Mammoth, and Karkinos) so it could pick up a Dodo-a Baryonyx which is pretty ideal if you dont have a flier yet and best of all you can yeet them away from your jaw with a cool animation.
3.) TRIVIA (CUSTOM)- Did you know that Megalosauruses name in Old Greek Mytholigy in Latin stands for " Great Lizard"? And also did you know that Megalosaurus is the first dinosaur to be discovered! At first Scientist found a tooth which resembled like an horn/crest so they thought Megalosaurus was a 4 legged lizard but in the early 2000's we now know that Megalosaurus is a 2 Legged Carnivore.
These guys are a must-have in Aberration; they are always awake (at least in the bioluminescent area), and thus always have their night buff. Of course, this also means you must always be wary of wild ones while in their territory.
Description: Megalosaurus is famous for being the first dinosaur ever to be discovered it 1824. When first discovered, paleontologists thought it looked like a giant lizard with a short tail, four short legs, a large round body a long head. (We now know otherwise👍)
