Juvenile Arctodus

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The arctodus is a mighty snow wolf-bear. Its wolf side gives it a strong pack mentality that makes it very protective of its companions. It can roar with arctic might, chilling opponents to the core and making it harder for them to move or act.

Juvenile Arctoduses are amphibious pets that can be charmed by rangers.

  • Arctodus is an extinct genus of bear that lived during the Pleistocene epoch. They inhabited North America and died out about 11,000 years ago. Two species are known; Arctodus simus and Arctodus pristinus. In real life, Arctodus differed from the in-game version by having an unusually short snout for a bear. The short snout gives them the common names "short-faced bear" and "bulldog bear".
  • Appearance-wise it bears a strong similarity to another extinct sub-family of bear called Hemicyoninae often called "dog-bears" that lived during the Oligocene through Miocene epochs.
