Survivors Wildlife Appendix
PLEASE NOTE I WILL NO LONGER BE UPDATING THIS APPENDIX I HAVE MOVED THE UPDATED VERSIONS TO THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE FORUMS


LINK: http://survivetheark.com/index.php?/forums/topic/14758-survivors-wildlife-appendix/




Welcome Survivors to this great thread to learn about the new and upcoming animals that will land in your Ark! This informational thread will include all you need to know about any animal.

I want to say a special Thank You to the Devs for adding my custom name for the Ape officially into the game. When the dossier dropped with just ????? Instead of a name. I made the name Megapithecus up for the ape because it needed a name. With the latest update I learned the devs actually started calling it megapithecus too. Im honored to have had a part in making the game, even just this tiny part. Thank you Wildcard Studios!

Don't know where you got some of these, for example you listed 3 types of raptors, pleisosaurus? and compys? Where did we see those? I only remember seeing Utahraptors.

If I'm not wrong there was never such a thing as giant spiders either. Spiders are now the largest they have ever been IIRC

Nope, during the time period with giant bugs, there was this HUGE one, don't recall the name.

Coelocanths have been confirmed.
TheLeftHand  [developer] May 13, 2015 @ 6:24pm 
Oviraptor has not been confirmed. I've said that I will make it my mission to get it in... not that it's confirmed in. Just to clarify
