The Great Lake is an area in the Central Sector. It was one of the original six areas opened to hunters during DinoHunt's first hunting program.


A few decades prior to human arrival on the planet, a small comet or asteroid hit the northwestern valley, kicking up tons of dust and gas into the atmosphere, blocking the sun in a radius of several miles from the impact site. The impact also triggered forest fires, which, combined with the gas clouds, killed all plant life in the surrounding area.

Eventually, the dust and gas subsided, and rains filled the impact crater over the course of sev

The original map handed to hunters, from which the area outside the valley was omitted

eral years, turning it into a lake. However, most plant life in this area remains dead due to small amounts of toxic materials from the asteroid still being present. When DinoHunt Corp. opened for business, it at first only opened the small valley in the northwest for hunting and exploration. About a decade after, an earthquake caused a landslide in the valley's eastern mountain wall, revealing a tunnel to the outside. Hunters began exploring the surrounding area, and DinoHunt had no choice but to officially open the entire region for its clients.

A hypothetical rendering of the Great Lake region in 150 years


There has been a hypothesis regarding the future of the Great Lake area, According to which the toxic sediments from the impact would naturally degrade within the next century, allowing plant life to grow again to their state before the impact within another 50 years.

Ancient PyramidEdit

Poacher CampEdit

Within the poacher camp, there is a small hut (possibly the hut of their leader) next to a pyramid-like structure, possibly (but probably not) the pyramid that the ancients built several millennia ago. There is also a trophy room containing all 7 dinosaurs from the first program.

  • The Great Lake was originally made for Carnivores by Action Forms themselves. Eventually it was extended and made compatible for later Carnivores games by P.Rex.
  • The extended version of The Great Lake was one of the first fan-made maps to be created with Alt Editor 2, the first Carnivores map to be extended, and the first map made by P.Rex.
  • The extended version of the map inspired glitchhunter09 to make Basmachee Rocks Returns and eventually start Carnivores Reloaded
