Australis was a species of human-Tyrannosaurus hybrid engineered by MTHR 248 as a replacement to the Ozymandias' human crew who perished to radiation poisoning. Australis was engineered as an experiment in enhanced survivability in vacuum conditions. The experiment was deemed a failure, though the species continued to inhabit the ship.
At twenty two meters long and seven meters tall, it is a formidable creature. The Australis are made from the DNA of a Tyrannosaurus. It is one of the largest and most dangerous dinosaurs in the series, with its main comparisons being only the Cebalrai and Miaplacidus. It is only two inches longer than the former, and three feet-six inches longer the latter. Equipped with an electricity-generating organ, the creature releases shock blasts. Unlike T. rex, however, it had two rows of teeth, sharing a trait with sharks.
Since Australis is slightly weaker than the other large dinosaurs, players shouldn't have much trouble defeating this dinosaur. Laser weapons are useful against Australis, provided they also use WASP to inflict extra damage, as Australis is capable of regenerating its own health. That, coupled with its ability to send electric wave through the battle area, makes the Australis a dangerous enemy.
The fourth and last Australis must be defeated quickly by both Patrick and Sonya, as the battle commences during a self-destruct sequence. You may actually need a large supply of WASP to take down the Australis immediately. This must be done in order to spare more time to escape the ship, not to mention that enemy grunts such as Algol will disturb you a lot during your escape.
