Liopleurodon is an elusive sea creature with a sweet tooth that appeared in the mid-late Jurassic Epoch.
It is a very large sea creature with a long head with large flipper-like limbs and it has smooth scaly skin.
In the wild, they are illusive as can be but will attempt to attack those that get near it regardless of its small size compared to other creatures..
Even though it is safe to approach a wild Liopleurodon they are quite hard to find, but if one is seen and approached while mounted they seem to get jelous and will attack the mounted human.
When tamed, these creatures are somehow able to improve the value of underwater treasure boxes of those who are in their presence.
Liopleurodon is considered a mid-sized ocean creature that is hard to seek out in the wild due to elusiveness and sometimes can be mistaken for other common creatures of the same build and size profile.
It has been speculated that these creatures have a magical quality to them, further adding to their already mysterious reputation.
They can even move in and out of danger, escaping massive water threats that are unable to pin this creature down while some have claimed that their love of honey is a weakness to their illusions.
Even though they can be tamed and help tribes find treasure in the high seas, their elusive nature never leaves them as they are able to disappear even from enclosed water pens, vanishing without a trace.
