A large stegosaur, Chungkingosaurus is an intimidating herbivore. Despite its passive nature, it is one of the most deadly herbivores on the island. Covered in large spines, it also boasts a coat of osteoderms for defense- reducing damage and damaging back attackers. However, it also boasts a deadly weapon- a surprisingly long tail adorned with vicious thagomizers (tail spines) that is equivalent to a natural halberd or glaive. This brutal weapon is capable of delivering devastating strikes, and that's not the end of it. The entire creature- Chungkingosaurus- is venomous. Much like a stegosaur equivalent mix of a sea urchin and lionfish, the spines of Chungkingosaurus contain a deadly venom that injects into attackers in self defense- these same venom glands also found in the thagomizers of Chunkingosaurus's tail, allowing it to constantly pump venom into its attacker in either passive defense or aggressive assaults. Combined with the fact they have tight family bonds with their herd mates, like their smaller Kentrosaurus relative, and a group of Chunkingosaurus turns into a terrifying force that is a nightmare to confront in melee combat. Tamed, they make an excellent solo fighter and are terrifying in groups- requiring proper tactics against to overcome- whether it be ranged assaults or melee creatures immune to venom.
