The Atarkis is a social Maxis made creature, present in the final game. They are simple, scaly creatures with many horns in their heads and tails.
They are omnivorous, but must prefer fruits, since they are weak creatures. When in combat, the Atarkis will probably run away. If they have to fight, they will try to daze the attacker with a charge and weakily bite it.
When socializing, they aren't impressive singers. They can also do a simple dance. They are also capable of jumping, and have more health because of their horns.
