ARKaholics, welcome the Carbonemys!

This is the first of two dino dossiers coming out today, stay tuned to find out what the next one will be.


Common Name: Carbonemys

Species: Carbonemys Obibimus

Time: Danian

Diet: Herbivore

Temperament: Defensive


Carbonemys obibimus is one of the least aggressive creatures on the island. Were it not for the plethora of predators on the island, I’m certain it would spend its days basking in the sun, eating, or sleeping. Carbonemys leads a simple, solitary life. Nevertheless, it seems to be one of the more peaceful animals I have yet encountered.

With its slow walking speed, the only things that keep it safe are its surprisingly fast swim speed, and its incredibly thick shell. I would not be surprised to see a carbonemys withdraw entirely into its shell and be completely safe from most predators.


Carbonemys’ swift swim rate, fairly high strength, and lack of real threat makes it an ideal aquatic mount for many coastal survivors who shy away from violence. It can carry its rider to the ocean’s resources at fairly high speed, but are not particularly dangerous to tame.
