Information

The Helicoprion (Hel-ee-corp-ry-en) "spiral-saw" light blue shark-like predator. More closely related to ratfish than to any shark. Which lived during the Early Permian to possibly Early Triassic and lived in Europe, Asia, North America and Australia. In real life, it fed on squid and other soft bodied organisms. Lived during the Triassic Period.

It's tied with Squalicorax in strength, as both have 1320 Health and 180 attack.

This awkward looking shark is known mostly for its "tooth whorl" on it's lower jaw. At first when archaeologists found the 'tooth whirl' they thought it was some kind of ammonite shell. This creature's size is estimated to be around 7.5 meters long. The question on where the 'tooth whirl' was actually on the body was a difficult question to scientists in the 20th century. At first they thought it had a long, toothy bottom jaw, but was later claimed that it would make it harder for the creature to swim.

Design

The Helicoprion has a lighter shade of blue on the pectoral fins and has a white bottom jaw and belly, as well as the well known "tooth whorl" on the bottom jaw. It has two nostrils on it's long, Goblin Shark-like snout, three pairs of gills near its head and two black eyes.

Trivia

  • Until recently where it's tooth whorl was placed was a subject of debate.
  • There is said to be a remodel for this.
    • However, devs are planning to remove the Helicoprion and replace it with another aquatic creature, most likely due to the fact that there weren't that many Helicoprions that survived the permian extinction in order to get to the triassic period.
      • Even if the Helicoprion did make it to the triassic period, it wouldn't count since most Helicoprions that survived the permian extinction and made it to the triassic period were about to perish.
        • It's possible that the Helicoprion will still be ingame but this time as a skin for the new aquatic creature that might replace it if it's confirmed that devs will replace the shark with a new aquatic creature. (Just like they did with Brevi by replacing it with Puertasaurus yet keeping the Brevi as a skin for Puertasaurus.)
  • Helicoprion offspring are not able to swim.

"An emotionless killer. I can't imagine what monstrous thoughts hide beneath its mask."

Information

The Blackfaced Helicoprion is so far the only skin for the Helicoprion. It has slightly better animations with a decent model, having a bite and eating animation.

Design

It has dark brown skin, a black face hence the name. Very "torn apart" or jagged pectoral fins, a "V" shaped caudal fin, four pairs of red gills, red eyes, sharp, long teeth and a gray tooth whorl starts in the mouth and ends under the jaw. It is a very intimidating design.

Trivia

  • Has an odd biting animation.
