** It's unlikely ''Quetzalcoatlus'' had an extendable tongue, since such organs are rare in archosaurs, and only found in highly derived birds such as woodpeckers and hummingbirds which have specialized bony structures to support them.

Primitive War II leans heavily into the Bitter side as Stalker Force is killed off and Ordo Ouroboros succeeds in sabotaging other colliders around the world, either destroying or unleashing dinosaurs all across the planet. It only avoids a Downer Ending due to Andrei knowing the coordinates of their hidden base and Eli, one of the original members of Vulture Squad, will probably lead the charge against Ordo Ouroboros.]]
