Megalosaurus is one of the most outstanding creatures appearing in ARK Survival Evolved! This is a hostile dinosaur that can become a risk to all survivors when they are wandering around the island for hunting, especially when the night comes. Let’s find out more information about Megalosaurus now!

Basic Info


Wild: Similar to other giant theropods of the island, Megalosaurus noctedominus is known as a hostile carnivore that all survivors should be careful when dealing with. They are not like other theropods in life style, mostly they appear at night, which can be called nocturnal creature. When the night approaches, these creatures will start searching for a desert and safe location to sleep.

Domesticated: Although Megalosaurus is not the strongest theropod, it’s still highly searched by a lot of attackers that are mostly active at night. This creature seems to be more intimidating at night because of its nocturnal nature. It usually avoids assault, maintains the stamina and launching its attacks more properly.

Known Information: If Megalosaurus is interrupted throughout the day, it will become more inactive. But, it still attacks the enemy if disturbed too much! Its principal strategy is to bite on that prey then start locking its jaw. The bigger creatures can expect to be free once this creature shuts down the jaw. After that, Megalosaurus will begin to chomp the target until death. It’s really horrible to watch, but this is also a nice strategy for a tribe to use against other quick prey.

Possibly, the Megalosaurus can be similar to a very small version of Allosaurus somewhat. It usually dodges a fight with its fellow big theropods by hunting when the night comes and start attacking the herbivores or any survivors when they are defenseless. This creature is kind of unique because it’s filled with feather.

Color Scheme and Regions

Since Megalosaurus is not released in the game yet, its basic information about color scheme and regions remains unknown.
