Dinocrocuta is a large, hyena-like creature found on the Arks. An uncommon sight in small groups on aberrant and standard arks, they are much more common in larger packs in scorched arks and desert environments. They are what many would expect of a giant hyena: robust, hardy creatures that pack a severe punch for their size. Somewhat hard to obtain, anybody able to assemble a pack of Dinocrocuta has a obtained one of the deadliest pack animals on the island- outmatched and rivaled only by Amphicyon!
Whereas Amphicyon individuals and packs are sheer power, Dinocrocuta are less durable and powerful. Rather than be brawlers, they're adept at being a bit more tactical- they're slightly faster, their bite penetrates armor, and drains stamina.

- Dinocrocuta means "Terrible Hyena".
- Dinocrocuta is a member of the Percrocutids: a family of now-extinct modern carnivores that're very closely related to hyenas, but actually aren't hyenas themselves. Still closer to hyenas than Hyaenodon though.
- Dinocrocuta used to be in Additional Creatures 1, but has since recieved a TLC, which has moved it to Additional Creatures 2: Wild ARK. It's functionally very similar to how it was before, with the main difference being that the old one had a stealth ability that allowed it to sneak past enemies.
