Eocarcharia vs Veterupristisaurus8 RepliesAdd A Reply
NoobMember0 XPAug-04-2013 4:46 AMWelcome ladies and gentleman, to my daily DinoFight. I always appreciate my loyal readers, but for those of you who are new, every day I pit two of the most formidable dinosaurs to ever exist against one another in a fight to the death (most of the time). Medium division, round 1, fight 9: Eocarchia vs Veterupristisaurus Eocarcharia [img]http://www.csotonyi.com/Eocarcharia.jpg[/img] Code Name: Dawn Shark Danger Level: Very dangerous Height: 10 feet Length: 27 feet Weight: 2 tons Speed: 35-40 mph Diet: Various herbivores Weapons: Bite, claws, speed Description: Eocarcharia is a carcharodontosaur of Isla Sorna. It lives in the western valleys of the mountainous region separating the north and south sides of the island where it ambushes medium sized dinosaurs, primarily sauropods. They are more intelligent than most of the larger species but they are outcompeted nonetheless. Their main competitors are Kelmayisaurus and Veterupristisaurus. They usually don't kill their prey, instead simply biting what they need off and allowing the sauropods to continue on and heal to provide food for another day. Eocarcharia are a tan color with red eye crests and sometimes black or brown stripes on their tails. Males are slightly larger than females on average. They have exceptional vision and a great sense of smell on top of good hearing, something that would make them top predators if their larger cousins were not present in the valleys as well. Eocarcharia, while naturally a dweller of the mountain region, has been forced out in recent years. Its population is declining and it is predicted that soon they will be extinct in the wild, not factoring in the help of the InGen introduced prion disease that is sure to kill most, with only 10-15 being thought to be alive in the wild after capturing began in April 2011, and only two live in an InGen facility as of July 2011. They seem to be finding a slightly better niche in the northern jungles, however. A number of DNA samples have been obtained but cloning is not planned for the 2015 park yet. Veterupristisaurus [img]http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_ONkzeDc3sOM/ShF_KvYnFVI/AAAAAAAAA6E/jtbknmSzIsA/s320/Eocarcharia.jpg[/img] Code Name: Phantom Danger Level: Very dangerous Height: 11 feet Length: 33 feet Weight: 3 tons Speed: 35 mph Diet: Various herbivores Weapons: Bite, claws, speed Description: Veterupristisaurus is one of the critically endangered species of carcharodontosaur on Isla Sorna. It was heavily effected by the prion diseased sheep and cattle in April 2011, showing that it was forced out of the mountains by then. When they lived in the valleys they were called "the phantoms" because they were all black in color and hid in the crevices and caves along the mountainsides. Instead of fighting the Troodon that already lived there, the two species formed an alliance. If the carcharodontosaurs could bring the Troodon wounded but living sauropods to incubate their eggs in, the Troodon would let them live in the caves as well. Both species were benefiting from the partnership in 2008 but after the Veterupristisaurus couldn't manage to catch sauropods without them being stolen by larger species, the Troodon kicked them out of their homes and the two species were at war for a brief amount of time. Even though the Veterupristisaurus were larger and far more powerful, the Troodon easily overwhelmed them with their huge numbers and very high intelligence. Veterupristisaurus are very stealthy and fast. Their main rivals are Kelmayisaurus, Eocarchia, Troodon and the other inhabitants of the western valleys. In late 2011 DNA samples were obtained and they showed evidence of inbreeding, suggesting the population was very low and unhealthy at the time. Fossils will be used to recreate them if they are ever to be put in the park because the DNA was fragile and mutated. FIGHT! In the narrow valley that the carcharodontosaurids thrive in, competition is constant. The Tyrannotitan, Carcharodontosaurus, Giganotosaurus, Mapusaurus and Acrocanthosaurus have all found their own niches, managing to coexist with only the occasional squabble. The smaller species, however, have not found their spot in the food chain. Two particular species, Eocarcharia and Veterupristisaurus, are at constant war. Competition over food is rapidly depleting their numbers. The larger representatives of their family are thriving, taking sauropods of all shapes and sizes and leaving nothing for their smaller cousins other than a rotten carcass every now and then. Slowly being driven from the valley, the species are forced to adapt. On this particular day, a female Eocarcharia trudges along in the light rain. She stomps through the valley, knowing the giants are hiding from the rain. She finds no food and continues on, eventually leaving the valley and walking into a marshy plain. She picks off a small caiman. From the opposite side of the clearing comes a Veterupristisaurus female. The dull grey sky and rain emphasize the unfriendly glare they pause and share. A Shoebill attacks a Hyracotherium nearby and a Marabou stork starts eating it as well. The Veterupristisaurus steals a glance at the attack and the Eocarcharia capitalizes, rushing forwards and tearing a chunk of flesh off of the shoulder of the larger Veterupristisaurus. It roars and snaps back but the Eocarcharia has already backed away. The Veterupristisaurus charges the Eocarcharia but the smaller Eocarcharia gracefully dodges and bites the shoulder wound again before skillfully dancing back. The Veterupristisaurus does a mock charge and the Eocarcharia jumps left, but the Veterupristisaurus knew it would and bites when the Eocarcharia can't run, knocking it off balance. The two birds on the ground drop the Hyracotherium and get away as the dinosaurs tumble into the mud. The Veterupristisaurus snaps its jaws furiously at the Eocarcharia, which has managed to get into a position to hold the larger dinosaur back with its legs. As the lay on their sides and fight the Eocarcharia holds its neck away, avoiding a fatal bite and kicks off from the Veterupristisaurus, causing them both to slide through the mud. The Eocarcharia stands up before the Veterupristisaurus and charges it while it still lies on the ground, chomping down on the injured shoulder again. It tears at the wound, exposing the shoulder bone. The Veterupristisaurus kicks the Eocarcharia's legs and causes the Eocarcharia to fall onto it. It then bites the Eocarcharia on the back right below the neck as it thrashes. The Eocarcharia yanks away and breaks off some of the Veterupristisaurus' teeth, but also helps it get its footing. Both now up, they circle each other for a moment and the Veterupristisaurus bolts towards the Eocarcharia but it runs away, reaching a deep pond filled with Purussaurus. The Eocarcharia plants its feet and manages to stop. However, as it turns to run again, it is rammed into the dark water. It bites the arm of the Veterupristisaurus, nearly pulling it in, but the Veterupristisaurus quickly yanks back and stands up. The Eocarcharia frantically kicks its legs in an effort to stand up and gets to its feet just as a Purussaurus lunges at it. It jumps to the side and runs across the back of another Purussaurus in a death defying stunt. The Eocarcharia safely makes it to the other side of the pond, much to the surprise of the Veterupristisaurus and itself. It tries to run again but is out of breath and the Veterupristisaurus catches up. As it turns to face its opponent, it roars and catches the Veterupristisaurus off guard. It takes advantage and rams the Veterupristisaurus with its head, knocking it over. The Eocarcharia goes for the belly of its larger cousin but gets kicked in the face. It falls back and the Veterupristisaurus stands up, but before it can take action the Eocarcharia is up as well. The Eocarcharia keeps a distance away and as it backs up past a Kaprosuchus, the BoarCroc runs towards it and bites into its belly. As it roars in pain and looks down at the Kaprosuchus, the Veterupristisaurus dashes at it and bites its neck. It pushes down on the Eocarcharia and she falls. The Kaprosuchus and Veterupristisaurus finish her off, but afterwards the BoarCroc attacks Veterupristisaurus as well, tearing off a chunk of its belly. The Veterupristisaurus runs away before it is wounded further, and the Kaprosuchus enjoys its meal as an InGen survey helicopter flies over the area. WINNER: VETERUPRISTISAURUS [img]http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2012/149/3/1/jurassic_hunt_by_teratophoneus-d51j1et.jpg[/img] They were very similar, and the only thing that set them apart was a small size difference. The Veterupristisaurus was larger and had a slight advantage because of it. But who was the real winner? The Veterupristisaurus might outcompete the Eocarcharia but they're still going to be outcompeted by the larger theropods and both will eventually go extinct or be captured. The true champion in this fight was the BoarCroc, Kaprosuchus. NEXT UP: Gorgosaurus, the powerful but speedy tyrant Siamosaurus, the walking croc with killer claws and narrow jaws What happens when a lone Gorgosaurus male takes on a female Siamosaurus on her home turf?

NoobMember0 XPAug-04-2013 7:05 AMI like how the third predator equalized the fight. Nice job!
"Either way, you probably won't get off this island alive."
NoobMember0 XPAug-04-2013 7:31 AMThanks! I wanted Kaprosuchus to have a more prominent role than it previously had in FBR. Kaprosuchus is one of my son's favorites.

NoobMember0 XPAug-04-2013 7:36 AMAwesome it's probably my favorite crocodile. I like the honey badger attitude you gave it is cool. I also like the impending doom the helicopter brings at the end. It's there to plan out capture, no doubt.
NoobMember0 XPAug-04-2013 8:27 AMGreat fight. Like you said, it came down to size. I'm rooting for Gorgosaurus for the next fight.
