Torosaurus is a unique ceratopsian in multiple ways. Firstly, it is an omnivore. While able to digest meat, it is fortunately not predatory like Direbear or Deinocheirus. It orefers to graze on grasses, and is partial to fruits and vegetables. Meat seems to only be when it needs to proteins to help recover from wounds, as they are sometimes seen feasting on predators they kill after intensive battles. More docile than triceratops, while they can be handfed, they are just as aggressive if provoked. Another unique feature of Torosaurus comes out with this aggression: its intimidation factor. Torosaurus's frill actually has a pattern on it in the shape of the face of a predatory carnivore- most familiarly, a tyrannosaur- and it tends to display this frill while emitting deep, carnivore-like rumbling in order to drive off smaller predators. Combined with the fact the frill eye-spots glow in the dark, this is extremely effective. It is an effect similar to the "intimidation roars" many creatures on the arks can do, but due to the intimidating display of Torosaurus, it can effect larger, more medium-sized creatures as well! This makes Torosaurus a viable, flexible mount for survivors who can obtain one.
