Tusoteuthis Vampyrus is a very aggressive water predator. Approximately 30 feet long, Tusoteuthis is a terror of the deep. Once it grabs its prey, it slowly crushes it into submission while using the talons on its tentacles to siphon and drain the victim of blood!

Tusoteuthis is a terrifying opponent for several reasons. Firstly, its grab slowly renders its victims unconscious, so death isn't the first concern. Secondly, its vampiric blood drain instantly revitalizes it even during combat. And finally, if Tusoteuthis is losing a fight, it sprays a cloud of ink into the water around it, blinding its attacker to cover a sneaky escape.

Domesticated

One of the major benefits of taming Tusoteuthis is harvesting its ink. Unlike normal ink, Tusoteuthis' ink is very oily, and can even be refined into fuels such as gasoline. Between that and Tusoteuthis' distinctive combat abilities, it makes for an excellent aquatic tame, despite its slow swimming speed.

 
— The Dossier

The Tusoteuthis (Too-so-tee-u-this) is a large, carnivorous aquatic cephalopod found in the oceans of the Ark.

Trivia

Trivia not relevant for the game

  • Tusoteuthis was a Cretaceous relative of the modern Vampire Squid - which is likely the inspiration for its blood-sucking tendencies described in the dossier (although it's worth noting that Vampire Squids don't actually drink blood.)
  • Tusoteuthis was native to the Western Interior Seaway, an ocean that split North America in half during the Late Cretaceous. Despite being comparable in size to modern Giant Squid, it was still far from the top of the local food chain.
