These undead horde of creatures roam the Ark with only their Skeletal remains. They are strong, deadly, and reinforce their battle lust with a legion of zomdodos!
Cannot be tamed. Drops Skeletal Costume.
Almost every skeletal creature will summon a group of zomdodo minions, which are similar to the zomdodos, except they do not have the percentage damage debuff that the regular zomdodos have.
The zomdodo minions and the skeletal creature will inflict large amount of torpor, so it is recommended to only try to fight them with alpha creatures, as even a high levelled group of rexes will become unconcious quickly.
The Skeletal creatures present with some damage reductions (approximately 50% of your normal damage) and they have a reflect damage passive, so expect to take some fairly strong hits from a rex/giga while things like the triceratops will be less of a problem.
Any kind of alpha with a good bite force is a good creature to go against skeletal creatures. Skeletal creatures seem to be immune to both the lightning and fire wyvern breath damage.
Method 1: One good mount is a high level Alpha thylacoleo. It can move up a small hill after attacking the skeletal creature, and then not have to deal with the Zomdodo's damage or torpor, and can easily kill the skeletal creature without too much resistiance - always have an escape route or a bloodvial/detox on backup, just incase things go poorly. This method does not apply to Skeletal Wyvern.
