Community Crunch 366: Introducing Fasolasuchus!
Posted on June 16th, 2023 07:03 PM EST
Hear the Deathworms tremble as they will no longer be the only ones dominating the sands of Scorched Earth when Fasolasuchus makes its grand entrance on ARK: Survival Ascended. This giant sand-dweller will surely change the power dynamic of Scorched Earth.

Common name: Fasolasuchus
Species: Fasolasuchus sabulonatator
Time: Late Triassic
Temperament: Aggressive (Ambusher)
This wasteland’s full of surprises, and not exactly the good kind. There’s something out here that looks like Fasolasuchus, if those proto-crocs could swim through sand like water…
These beasts might pop up suddenly to ambush you, or swim around you fast enough to catch you in a sand-whirlpool. I can't stress enough how dangerous this deathtrap can be! Plus their tails are strong enough to whip up sand to blind predators and prey alike.
If you can help it, I recommend staying clear of those spikes. I think they’ve got acid glands at the base of their spiny fins, and in their mouths as well. Their caustic bite seems to melt through the thickest hide.
One of these monster sand-swimmers would make a great mount, but good luck slowing down something that can shrug off most narcotics. You could try softening one up with explosives, grabbing a spike, and steering it into a rock… But you’d have to be a bit mental to try.
I imagine the adrenaline junkies able to tame a Fasolasuchus would earn themselves a formidable ride through these scorching sands. They seem to have adapted to fighting larger prey, so I'd advise any faso-rider to steer clear of packs of smaller creatures that can swarm over its defenses.

The indominus, rex, and spino are ALL at RISK on the arrival of this new colossal predator: ARK's Giga. Today we will put ARK's giga in both Isla Nublar and Sorna and see which of these two islands can fare better against this Giga. Will these predators be wiped out? or will they join forces to take out a new common foe?
Haxeu shows us who is fit for survival, even if you are solo. All you truly need is a doe and a bow (and massive skills).
