The Daeodon Comentis is a territorial carnivore that resembles a warthog which appeared during the late Oligocene epoch.
The Daeodon has a large maw which it uses for fighting as well as eating the large quantities of meat that it needs to replenish its health..
In the wild these creatures usually roam around attacking smaller creatures and when in groups, they heal each other if any part of their group gets hurt in any encounter.
Being a Territorial animal they will attack even if unprovoked and will chase their target.
When a tribe has domesticated a Ddaeodon, it becomes a valuable addition to them due to its ability to heal other tames and even provide feces for making fertilizer.
The Daeodon is the largest species of entelodont, even though it is a part of a group of ancient omnivorous mammals it is strictly a carnivore getting the nickname, Hell Pigs.
Many survivors have reported that these creatures are very aggressive and will relentlessly attack anything with a pulse that enters their territory.
It has been said that these creatures make excellent members of any tribe due to its ability to tap into its metabolism and heal other creatures in its vicinity which in turn makes the already gluttonous Daeodon very hungry, very quickly.
