Area(s)

Brutosaurs are enormous, long-necked dinosaurs native to Zandalar. They are used by the Zandalari Empire as both weapons of war and enormous, mobile trading posts.[1] Trained to haul goods throughout Zuldazar, brutosaurs offer a slow but steady ride around the city's terraces.[2] Brutosaurs are rare within Vol'dun.[3]

To brutosaurs, seed pods partially digested by diemetradons are a delicacy. The pods only become edible to a brutosaur once in the belly of a diemetradon.[4] Brutosaurs have a sweet tooth, how they attained that trait has been lost to time and legend.[5] The brutosaur species of Nazmir have a great fondness for primitive warermelons which are inedible to most other creatures.[6] Some brutosaurs are canivorous, some even like their meat cooked.[3]

White brutosaurs were on the brink of extinction,[7] with Gentle Ben'jin and Irritable Maka'fon having been the last two remaining.[8] However the two eventually had children,  [Lil' Ben'fon] and Little Ben'maka.

Notes and trivia

  • Sauropod-like dinosaurs first appeared in Warcraft in the form of the "longneck" dinosaurs featured in the Journey to Un'Goro expansion for Hearthstone.
  • It is required to feed three named brutosaurs for the achievement [Eating Out of the Palm of My Tiny Hand].
  • Players often humorously refer to brutosaurs using the term "long boi".
