Deltadromeus Reconstruction

Deltadromeus Model

Deltadromeus are dinosaurs confirmed to appear in Additional Creatures 2: Wild ARK.

Deltadromeus, meaning "Delta Runner", is a massive species of ceratosaurian dinosaur that lived in North Africa during the Late Cretaceous, 95 million years ago. Although not initially bizarre, Deltadromeus stands out as an oddity among the other dinosaurs it lived with, like Carcharodontosaurus and Spinosaurus. While known to be a theropod dinosaur, what exactly it was has been a mystery for decades. For most of history it was a late-living ceratosaur, although others speculated that it was a carcharodontosaur. However, in recent years, it has been accepted to be a giant noasaur, a group of little-understood ceratosaurian dinosaurs closely related to abelisaurs. At 12 meters long, Deltadromeus is easily the largest in its family. The ecology of Deltadromeus is unknown due lack of decent remains and the general mystery surrounding Noasaurs. Certain Noasaurs, like Limusaurus, were shown to have teeth when young and lost them as they aged, which implied omnivory to more herbivorous tendencies with age. Meanwhile, species like Noasaurus and Masiakosaurus were carnivores. As a result, Deltadromeus's diet is a mystery.

While its role in Additional Creatures is unknown, its model has been revealed, being created by Jagged Fang Designs. It is also known that it will have X and R variants.
