  1. Hey guys! I made a massive list of all the Tamable Dinos in ARK and what makes them each special. I made this list for myself but felt like it could be useful for others and posted it to Reddit where it received overwhelming support. Not sure why I didn’t think of this place first but better late than never, right? Anyway, I got all of this info from a mix of the wiki and my own experience (and a few comments from Reddit, thanks again guys) so let me know if anything is missing or wrong and I’ll fix it. Tamable ARK Creatures: Vanilla: 1. Achatina - generates cementing paste and organic polymer 2. Allosaurus - high dps bleed and pack bonus 3. Ankylosaurus - gathers metal, crystal, oil, flint, and obsidian better than anything else, flint/stone in great ratio for sparkpowder 4. Anglerfish - gathers angler gel and silica pearls 5. Araneo - web attack slows enemies 6. Archaeopteryx - passively gathers tree sap and acts as a parachute 7. Argentavis - high weight/weight reduction flyer with smithy saddle 8. Arthropleura - acid spit destroys armor durability, can damage all structures even tek 9. Baryonyx - decent underwater fighter, has stun attack, no oxygen stat, can sprint underwater 10. Basilosaurus - generates oil and is immune to shock damage, insulates, damaged by deep water, heals in shallow, can’t be grabbed by squid 11.
