Ark Moschops Guide (How to Tame, Drops, Food, Location…)

Ark Moschops

Moschops Cibumutante is an omnivore with a cowardly temperament that was first seen in the Mid Permian epoch.

The Moschops has a big body with short legs often walking in a waddle and has special teeth  that can bite onto different organisms with little to no issue.

In the wild it can be seen taking a bite out of pretty much anything as it seems to be tasting everything to find out what it will like to feed on for the day.

When approached by humans it will continue with its business waddling around like a land seal but once once they feel threatened, they will immediately run away.

Tribes utilize these creatures to farm specific resources as they can be trained to efficiently harvest certain resources based on the preference of the tribes.

Dossier

Dossier Summary

The Moschops are gluttonous and skittish creatures and remains replenished most of the time as it is constantly eating to sustain its hunger.

Being a natural when it comes to surviving dangerous encounters, it will run at the first sight of danger even leaving its rider to their fate if they are not mounted.

Even though the Moschops won’t be able to win you any battles, these creatures are still much more useful than others may think since they can gather large amounts of a certain resource more than other creatures can.

Overview

Moschops can be such cowards and are often preyed upon by other Predators but most of the time they are capable of making a quick getaway.

It may be a bit tedious to tame such a creature due to its need for random taming foods but trapping it before heading out to get its taming food is a good workaround for this.

Tribes greatly benefit from the Moschops’ ability to gather large quantities of specific resources and can even have them autonomously collect these by setting them on wander.
