Wild: Presiding almost solely within island’s swamps, Diplocaulus Natatorinutrix is a small amphibian that primarily eats minor fish. It rounds out what I consider the middle-bottom of the ecosystem, feeding on the tinier non-insect creatures of the island while itself being a common snack for the larger carnivores.
Domesticated: There are only a few uses for tamed Diplocaulus. It is primarily used for the (rather disgusting) practice of employing Diplocaulus as an oxygen bag. Diplocaulus stores air in the bladders of its head, and divers can suck from these bladders to take deep breaths while submerged, supporting long-term underwater exploration without the use of external gear.
Known Information: Because so many creatures prey on it, Diplocaulus has become very skittish and often flees at the first sign of trouble. It uses its amphibious nature to escape into whichever enviroment its predator isn’t native to. Diplocaulus unique capability to retain vast quantities of oxygen allows to effectively remain submerged for hours at a time, usually outlasting even other amphibious creatures that might otherwise prey upon it.
According to the dossier, the Diplocaulus can be used as a living oxygen tank (because of its air bladders). This means that it will become possible to take a dinosaur with you while diving, without the need of the Lazarus Chowder or oxygen tanks to be able to stay underwater for a long time. This opens up all kinds of uses, as you will be able to keep your own armor equipped in the depths of the ocean. Furthermore, it will be possible for lower level players to use the dino instead of the expensive, and high level, diving gear.
