New animal that will be released in June 2022 with the new DLC map Fjordur:
Even with all the other monstrosities here, this fugitive from a Creature Double feature deserves first place. I mean, Dracula is already in the name of his species! And Desmodus has a scream that he can use to scare pretty much anything that gets in his way. He's also smart enough to limit himself to victims he can kidnap into the night.
With over 60'000 votes the "Desmodus Draculae" wins the second Community Creature Vote! In the next week the concept and the dossier for the new inhabitant of ARK will be presented. Some possible ideas are uploaded here in the Gallery (see also the official proposal on SuriveTheArk.com, creator is Shadowenigma250x)
Most of the creatures I've encountered here have survived thanks to their size, strength or ferocity. But the fjord goshawk manages with its wits and by scavenging. The bird also seems to have an almost supernatural ability to anticipate and avoid danger. The Fjordhawk tracks predators (and survivors) from above, waiting for the moment when it can strike and grab an easy meal.
