Jungles and Forests
The forests are home to the Raptor, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Brontosaurus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, Parasaurolophus, Carnotaurus, and Gallimimus. These areas are often guarded by trees, making aerial spotting of enemies nearly impossible.
The mountains are home to the Ankylosaurus, Doedicurus, Stegosaurus, Argentavis, Pulmonoscorpius, Raptor, Carnotaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Quetzalcoatlus, and Giganotosaurus. The mountains are some of the only places where Metal, Crystal, and Obsidian are found in abundance along with lots of Stone and Flint, making them excellent quarries and mines. Higher areas are good for houses due to high visibility but be careful because you will need water eventually.
Plains and Grasslands
The plains and grasslands are home to almost every creature, making them a great place for hunting, but not just Humans.
The snow is centered in the northwest around Whitesky Peak and Winter's Mouth, home to the Kairuku, Sabertooth, Direwolf, Megaloceros, Mammoth, and Woolly Rhino. The snow is a dangerous place due to both the cold and its inhabitants, but the dangers lead to greater rewards, including Organic Polymer from the Kairuku and plentiful resources. However, Fiber is in short supply.
The swamps are centered in the south and east in the Writhing Swamps and are home to the Plant Species X, Meganeura, Beelzebufo, Sarcosuchus, and Titanoboa. The swamps are a dangerous place due to both the heat and its inhabitants, but the dangers lead to greater rewards, including Rare Mushroom, Rare Flower, Plant Species X Seed, and plentiful resources. However, there is little if any Metal, Crystal, and Obsidian.
The redwood forest is centered on the heart of the main island around Deep Island and Red Peak, south of the Volcano and directly north of the swamps.
The ocean is an area that is thought to contain some worthwhile stuff. The only discouragement is the fact that there are dangerous creatures such as the Electrophorus, Angler, Megalodon, Dunkleosteus, Liopleurodon, Plesiosaur, and Mosasaurus, though most other creatures such as the Trilobite, Coelacanth, Ichthyosaurus, and Leedsichthys are far less dangerous. Other than that, it'd be a great spot for a vacation! The Spinosaurus is a great substitute for the Megalodon if you want to do some oceanic exploration.
There are several islands off the coast of the main island. The islands possess many of the same features of the main island, only on a smaller scale. The Dead Island in the northeast is home to numerous carnivores, making it a place that shouldn't be trifled with. The South Haven in the southeast is home to numerous herbivores, making it a stark contrast to the Dead Island. The glaciers in the northwest off the coast of the snow are home to the Kairuku.
The caves are the only other place besides the mountains and snow where Metal, Crystal, and Obsidian are found in abundance, but are usually filled to the brim with the Pulmonoscorpius, Titanoboa, Araneomorphus, Onychonycteris, Dung Beetle, and Megalania. You may also find "care packages" and some of the items required to summon the world bosses deep within each cavern.
