Comments[edit]

Consistency: Article early on describes animal as probably carnivorous, but later as definitely herbivorous. Sandcastlesofstone 09:47, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Stalagmite to Pneumatophore[edit]

I changed the use of the word "stalagmite" to the word "pneumatophore", a type of aerial root used by mangroves, often found in swampy environments, as evident in the show.

An herbivorous animal[edit]

I think Arthropleura was a herbivorous animal.The biggest weight is almost ever, with herbivorous or onivorous animal.Agre22 (talk) 11:56, 8 February 2009 (UTC)agre22

No way this is fair use. We're not talking about the film 64.131.243.173 (talk) 15:16, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Width[edit]

I've been trying for years to find out how wide the animal and/or the tracks of this creature are. Is there anyone who can add this data to the article? --Suttkus (talk) 23:16, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Halo Reference[edit]

There appears to be an obscure reference to Arthropleura on page 335 of Halo cryptum MMFA (talk) 00:37, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

"Nearby, something like a small tank passed by me on many pumping legs, a gigantic armor-plated arthropod almost three meters long. It ignored me, for I was not the rotting vegetation it favored as a meal." - Page 335 of Halo: Cryptum MMFA (talk) 00:39, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
Unless it actually said it was Arthropleura, and or explains how this mention of Arthropleura is important to the plot of Halo, please don't use the "In Popular Culture" section as a laundry list of "spot the monster"--Mr Fink (talk) 04:59, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
I didn't edit it, I was just making a suggestion MMFA (talk) 13:30, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
"or explains how this mention of Arthropleura is important to the plot of Halo," You've got this backward--it needs to explain how the plot of Halo is relevant to the animal Arthropleura or has effected public perception of that animal. Otherwise it belongs only on the Halo page at best. MMartyniuk (talk) 14:55, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
