This dossier section is intended to be an exact copy of the text in the official dossier. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game Pachyrhinosaurus.
Wild: Pachyrhinosaurus mitisaura is a medium-sized herbivore, found almost everywhere but the island’s mountains. It is generally calm, and ignores all other nearby creatures unless it is attacked, at which point it usually tries to flee.
Domesticated: Pachyrhinosaurus is an excellent starting mount for anyone new to taming. It is fairly easy to train, can carry enough to be a simple pack-animal, and is not as deadly as some of the larger herbivores. Additionally, Pachyrhinosaurus can release its unique chemical on command to protect itself and its rider from nearby predators, or draw attention if desired, making it a potential life saver in a pinch.
Known Information: Of the island’s varied creatures, Pachyrhinosaurus may possess among the most unique survival skills. When threatened, its massive nasal boss releases a chemical into the air that calms other nearby creatures, making them less likely to attack it. Affected creatures are sometimes hungry enough to ignore the effect and humans seem immune to it. Conversely, it can seemingly invert this phenomenon at will and induce creatures to become more aggressive towards it!
Pachyrhinosaurus is a peaceful herbivore that is not aggressive and will spend its time grazing. Similarly to the Triceratops, the Pachyrhinosaurus will charge if a survivor or tamed animal attacks it. However, if the battle seems fruitless for the Pachyrhinosaurus, it will flee and release a chemical to pacify its attackers, allowing the dinosaur to escape and recover. This chemical will not work on humans though.
Like its larger relative the Triceratops, the Pachyrhinosaurus is a burly quadrupedal herbivore with an impressive frill. Unlike the Triceratops, Pachyrhinosaurus has a bony growth called a boss where the trike has its nasal horn. The animal still displays a multitude of horns and spikes on its frill, though none as large or fearsome looking as those on a Triceratops.
