"The Ancient Temple" is the fourth area in Carnivores. With only a isolated small temple as a safe zone, this is a map is recommended for advanced hunters. The temple, located in the center of the island remains one of the biggest known mysteries on the planet, appearently built by ancient natives. Hieroglyphs on the wall indicate a worship of the Velociraptor, calling the beast "fast as the wind, with teeth sharper than any blade." This island is very important because it reveals rare evidence about the extinct inhabitants of the Planet. It shows that they had forms of worship and writing skills, it also tells of their building skills. The temple also posesses an ominous, disembodied voice speaking something against the wind.
The Island consists of rolling hills covered in mediumly dense jungle, with rocky outcrops and several bodies of water and a Mountain range to the north.
- Lake- A small body of water.
- Northwall Mountains- Forming the Northmost boundary of the Island, the range presents an insurmountable wall which a clever hunter can use to funnel his prey and cut off escape, and an unlucky hunter trapped with his back to unyielding granite in the shadow of a looming Tyrannosaur. The mountain rim is the Highest point on the map.
- Mud Flat- A large flat plain populated with shrubs and small plants growing in the dark soil. Due to the lack of trees and even level of the terrain, the flat provides excellent visibility in all directions, and the dark color causes prey animals to stand out. A silt pond provides an extra degree of cover, if the Hunter has the patience-and lung capacity-to wait it out.
No Geographic Features of Note
- Stone Ring Lake- A small rounded lake surrounded by large boulders with a stone rise coming out of the water in the center of the lake. Climbing the rise provides the Hunter with a platform from which he can lay in wait out of reach of predators.
- Footpaths- A circuit of game trails.

Temple Complex- A ruined open air construct surrounded by a moat of lava, believed to be a hub of worship for the mysterious civilization that inhabited the Island. Considered connected to other ancient constructs on the Planet, the Temple's primary use is as a hard to reach, but impregnable haven for a wise hunter. Its architecture and supernatural mysteries add to its visitibility.
