The Ichthyosaurus Curiosa is a water creature with a carnivorous diet with a curious temperament that was seen around the elate Triassic to early Jurassic period.
Ichthyosaurus have a resemblance to dolphins with a similar body and longer nose while appearing to be just as intelligent and friendly as well.
Ichthyosaurus tend to swim around in different depths of the ocean, remaining peaceful but also curious at times.
These creatures do not fear humans and will even swim up to them to help those who are drowning and even accept food out of their hands.
Tamed Ichthyosaurus are some of the fastest underwater creatures around and this makes them worth taming for tribes.
This creature is smaller than most water creatures and in turn is much faster than most of them which makes them essential for tribes when it comes to scouting.
The Ichthyosaurus is classified as an aquatic reptile regardless of the fact that it appears to be a fish or an ocean mammal to most tribes.
Most tribes would make use of these creatures due to their fast speed when either starting out or scouting around as they can travel through water very fast and quickly get from one place to another.
Even though these creatures are fast, tribes are still able to tame then since they are friendly and will pretty much approach the survivor to eat food offered to them.
