The Morellatops Dromedarius is a relatively passive herbivore that appeared in the early Cretacious period.
These large creatures are easy to spot with their scaly hide and their unique humps on their backs that can store large volumes of water.
Morellatops tend to wander in smaller groups just foraging for berries or tree sap for nourishment in desert-like lands.
Probably used to human presence due to their sort of symbiotic relationship with each other but when attacked they can quickly run away where chasing it may be hard due to the heat of the desert which makes it hard for survivors to catch up.
Taming Morellatops is uncommon for most tribes since they would rather allocate their time in taming stronger creatures for battle and safeguarding their location but more experienced tribes used this creatures usefulness in toughing it out in the harsh desert lands.
Being somewhat large creatures, these are prized prey of most carnivores in the desert not only for their bulk of meat but also the hydration they can get that is stored in its humps.
Not as ferocious or as strong as other herbivores, the Morellatops has a hard time defending itself but surprisingly these creatures can run for far longer than other land creatures allowing it to eventually escape its predators.
Building a symbiotic relationship with humans, the Morellatops becomes a water source for humans as it can store large volumes within its humps for hydration which helps survivors that live in deserts.
