The Isle - The Gallimimus Guide

The most vulnerable creature in The Isle is a Gallimimus (Gal – e – mim – us). Playing as this creature is hard, as it is small and easy to kill. This guide is going to explain how to live the gallimus life!

A Lost Little Hatchling

When your first put into this world, your often without a mother. You’ll have to survive on nest food or forage for food yourself. If you hear calls from larger dinosaurs, crawl and stick to the ground. Your color will help you with your surroundings. This will tell you where to hide depending on your color

  • Grey ~ Hide near a stone or crawl on the ground without moving.
  • Green ~ Hide in tall grass, and don’t move.
  • White/Peach ~ Stay close to the sand-grass biome transition.
  • Black/Dark Green ~ Hide in dense forests or ferns.

It’s best to find a Dryosaurus, Gallimimus, or any herbivore who will help you survive. Herbivores will help hatchlings by putting food in their nest. If you haven’t found a new mother, then the next part will tell you survival instincts.

Survival of the Fittest

A gallimimus comes in many colors. Peach, grey, white, black, and even green! Whatever the color, they need to survive. So they blend into whatever surroundings they can.

Here are some survival tips! They’ll help you through predator problems

  • Problem: You’re a juvinile and a predator such as a Tryanosaurus rex has caught your scent.
  • Solution: Run! A Tryanosaurus Rex doesn’t have much stamina. Though it may be able to track you, run around in zig-zaggy like lines or jump to confuse it.

  • Problem: I’m an adult and I think somethings Following me
  • Solution: If your in a forest, run circles around it and get it confused with it’s own scent.

  • Problem: Somethings forcing me to leave my nest and my eggs!
  • Solution: You can lay more eggs later! Destroy your nest and get away from that spot after the predator has left, then make a new nest.

  • Problem: The predator is getting too close to my live hatchlings!
  • Solution: Destroy the nest and move to a different spot. Unless it’s following you, then run away and find a new river or pond to hide near.

Gameplay Tips

  • As a hatchling, stay close to your nest and survive off of the food your mother has left you. Don’t leave unless you have no food.
  • DO Head to the aviary. There are forgotten lakes and ponds around there, and a river is flowing from it. It’s okay if you don’t make it, just stay around it.
  • DON’T make your nest right by a pond. Make it in the pine trees or ferns!
  • DO Leave eggs for survival! Don’t defend a nest from a predator unless the young are alive!
  • DON’T leave live young! They can survive by hiding or following you!
  • DO help any form of herbivore! They might just pay you back!


As an adult, you’ve likely left the nest now. Literally. Your ready to start your new family after you’ve learned how to survive, hide, and what to do. But in adult hood, you need the perfect nesting site! By finding the answer to this, we can take an animal from modern day life. Wolves are a good example of this. Let’s take a look at them to find this.

  • What wolves do (1): Wolves from Yellow Stone often move to Slough Creek.
  • What you do (1): Migrate to the aviary or a small pond or lake.
  • What wolves do (2): The wolves find a den that has water and a food source
  • What you do (2): Find a clutch of pine or birch trees near a creek, river, or pond. likely on a mountain side since flora grows on rocks often.
  • What wolves do (3): They establish a territory or grounds they call theirs and then settle in their den.
  • What you do (3): Establish an area for your hatchlings to play in safely, Woods or a small clearing would work.

Now that we’ve noticed what to look out for, let’s skip on to parenthood!

Parenthood and Hatchlings

You’ve made a nest in the perfect area! You’re happy and ready for your new, tiny younglings to play with. But what do you do? How do you “prepare” for hatchlings? Well here’s how!

Before you start gestating an egg, you first fill the nest with food. As much food as possible. It’s good to do as much as 200. Either way, check the nest every day if there is still food in the nest.

When your young are older and can’t eat from the nest, you may want to think about migrating. Since you need food, too, you’ll likely want to start moving to a new lake or mountain.

Moving to a lake is dangerous, so always remind your hatchlings where to hide. Always go over what to do if there is a predator that would likely kill you. Encourage them to be quiet, discourage loud behavior.

Now that you know how to take care of young dinosaurs, your good to start your life!
