― Saurian encylopedia
Chamops is an extinct genus of lizard that lived in the Late Cretaceous and was most likely an omnivore due to it's blunt teeth. It was part of the extinct group Polyglyphanodontia. The group was once thought to be closely related to whiptails, but recent research suggests that it has a close relationship with Iguanas.
In Saurian Edit
Chamops is portrayed with a red head, foot, and neck and black on the rest of the body.
When the player approaches a Chamops, it will swiftly run away. And with its small size, finding it without using scent can be challenging. It is a very reliable food source for hatchling/juvenile dinosaurs. They release a small green cloud of scent particles that allow them to be easily detected in the first moments of the hunt. After that, the player must ambush and attack the small lizard before it runs away. If it does run away, you can use scent again and detect its green cloud or its blue outline, or the head tracking to find its location. A Chamops carcass releases a purple cloud of scent particles, like most deceased animals.
Currently, Chamops does not have sexual dimorphism or ontogeny stages.
