Freeplay: Last X amount of time in freeplay (perhaps an hour, if you can go that long).
Might need to be amended so it only applies after you break the surface, and with requirements for there being nest invasions or other threats turned on.

Alternatively, it could just be a reward for playing freeplay long enough, regardless of whether you are actually in danger.

Fair enough.

Another possible achievement:

In the Formicarium, repel a whip spider, mantis, and tiger beetle within X seconds.

1.1 and 1.2: Beat the level without building anymore food store
1.2: Make the slavemaker kill the mole cricket (they can spawn in the middle of battle but I don't know which ant kill them)
2.1: Beat the level without killing enemy ant (I think possible on low difficulty using Balanite's strat, need to get out at night a lot though), or beat the level without killing adult tiger beetles
2.2: Beat the level without fighting underground creatures (don't know if possible)
Challenge 3: beat it only with species unlock and level 3 unlock (no other modification or upgrade)

Might be a tad bit late, but could you add a random dinosaur bone somewhere that makes it really hard to find, maybe make it so that it's not a preset location to add to the difficulty, but in return it gives some sort of achievement for finding it (maybe by having to utilize a feature like photo mode or something similar)? and yes, this is a very specific request made out of very obvious reasons dating back to the second kickstarter times.

They said in stream that there will be hidden achievement like that, similar to the hidden beetle corpse in 3.1, you won't know what those achievements are until you find them.
