You will also be able to change your skin color and the types with different layers, marking, and more. just note that you can only do this if you spawn directly into the game. if you are bred and hatched by parents you will get random skin based on your parents.

Comfort – Effects On Health

This is one of the important aspects of the game and determines how fast you grow, regain your ability power, restore your stamina, heal yourself and more.

The comfort level of your character will largely depend on the type of surrounding you are in. for example, if you are among enemies then your comfort will lower but if you are among allies then it will raise your comfort.

The size of dinosaurs and the food you eat will also affect the comfort of your character. so make sure that you stay among the beasts which are of the same or lower size than you and eat proper food by searching and hunting for them in map of Beasts of Bermuda.

The comfort zone of a dinosaur is represented as a Dino skeleton symbol on the right bottom corner of the screen. below you will find the color and their correlation with the comfort.

  • Blue: 75 – 100
  • Green: 50 – 75
  • Yellow: 40 – 50
  • Orange: 30 – 40
  • Red: 0 – 30

Once you reach the orange comfort level you will start losing health and it will also drastically reduce other key survival features.


While sprinting and jumping your stamina will be slowly depleted and if it is fully depleted you won’t be able to run until you recover it.

To increase the rate of recharging of stamina you should stay in one place or just sleep to recover quickly.

There are also talents which you can pick which will reduce the usage of stamina and also increase the amount of stamina.

Ability Power

Ability power of your character determines how you attack, use special abilities, and scent in Beasts of Bermuda. this mechanic has a recharge/cooldown system in which your abilities can be used by spending some amount of ability. once it is depleted you will need time to recharge again so that you can use it.

  • Orange cloud – decaying Meat
  • Yellow cloud – Rotten Meat
  • Blue Scent – Water
