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 Moschops.
Wild: Moschops cibumutante in the wild is a lethargic, cowardly creature that primarily lives in the forests of the island, primarily making its home among the great redwoods of the West. It survives by being extremely flexible in its eating habits and completely averse to fighting. It never starves, since it can eat just about anything. Moschops runs at the slightest provocation, but is still often preyed upon.
Domesticated: What makes Moschops particularly interesting is what it can be trained to do with its eating habits. With a versatile palate and tough teeth, Moschops can be tamed for a unique ability: over time it can be taught exactly which things to gnaw, increasing the likelihood of harvesting that exact resource which its master desires. For example, teach it to prioritize chewing Prime Meat, and Prime Meat will be easier to harvest from the flesh it consumes. Likewise for rare plants materials, and so forth!
Known Information: Just don’t expect Moschops to protect you, though. Even after taming, it will quickly flee when enemies are nearby. Regardless of being fed well, increasing its strength, or how much affection you shower on it — Moschops retains its inherent cowardly nature!
Moschops is a passive, friendly animal that doesn’t take notice of survivors or other creatures, until attacked. When threatened, they will flee, unless if a survivor takes a Moschops egg, then they attack.
Despite its appearance, the Moschops is not a dinosaur or even a relative, but much more closely related to mammals as it is a Theraspid, or mammal-like ancestor. It has a barrel-shaped body to hold the large gut necessary for its varied diet with sprawled-out feet and a short tail. Perched on its body is a short, thick neck with a broad head.
Color Scheme and Regions
The Moschops’s range of its natural color scheme is unknown at this time, however its color regions are available. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Moschops.
