When most hear of a dino called the "Rival to Trex", they may initially think of Spinosaurus, or Giganotosaurus: perhaps some other large theropod. If you clarify to mean creatures it lived with in its original time, they may say Ankylosaurus, Triceratops, or even Dakotaraptor. One of Tyrannosaurus's most common prey items was the large, unassuming Edmontosaurus. However, make no mistake. These creatures were larger than the original tyrannosaurus and could easily kill them just the same as a Triceratops could. Here on the arks, these large, generally cold-weather hadrosaurs are far from defenseless. they are large herbivores adept at throwing their weight around to attack their aggressors. While capable of inflicting damage equal to that of Tyrannosaurus, they cannot keep up such a fight as long, and may need to resort to weaker attacks or fleeing if they cannot defend themselves properly. Tamed, Edmontosaurus is an interesting mount. It's of a similar weight class as its infamous predator, but offers a lot of the same, and different, in a more versatile package. Due to its habit of running on its hind legs, it is more agile than one would think. It offers a lot of flexibility and power that most would only expect in large, aggressive animals, though at a bit of a cost of general strength. It makes a wonderful jack-of-all-trades for any survivor.
