ARK: Survival Evolved Ceratosaurus Species Guide

Posted on by justin
ARK: Survival Evolved, and its community, constantly release new creatures to bring additional challenges and flavor to the game. One of these latest additions in ARK: Survival Evolved is the Ceratosaurus, which can be tricky to tame, unlike other dinosaurs.

What is the Ceratosaurus in ARK: Survival Evolved?

ARK: Survival Evolved Ceratosaurus Also known as the “Horned Lizard,” the Ceratosaurus is a carnivorous dinosaur approximately six to seven meters long. Its hunting instincts are useful in finding and catching prey, and these traits also make this dinosaur a ferocious combatant. In ARK: Survival Evolved, the Ceratosaurus isn’t in the base game at the time of writing. Instead, survivors can find it as part of the ARK Additions mod. Within it, players can only find this dinosaur in the Grassland biome. But it shouldn’t take long before you’ll be in front of one.

How to Tame the Ceratosaurus

Unlike other creatures like the Diplodocus, taming a Ceratosaurus in ARK: Survival Evolved requires a unique approach. For starters, you can’t simply knock it out and feed it its favorite food. Instead, you must first craft a consumable called the Hemoglobin Cocktail. Unlocking this engram requires you to be level 75. You can read our ARK: Survival Evolved Leveling Guide for a step-by-step process on how to gain XP quickly. Upon unlocking the engram, you must use 15x Blood Pack, 10x Narcotic, and 10x Cerato Venom Spine. Use the Blood Extraction Syringe to get the Blood Pack item. As for the Narcotic, craft it by using 5x Narcoberry or Ascerbic Mushroom and 1x Spoiled Meat. Next, get the Cerato Venom Spine by killing a Ceratosaurus. You can get about 5 to 10x Cerato Venom Spine per kill. Then, find a wild Ceratosaurus and feed the Hemoglobin Cocktail to one of your tamed creatures. A pink glow should emit from its body, luring the Ceratosaurus. Sacrifice your tamed creature and wait for the Ceratosaurus to become drunk. Interact with the Ceratosaurus when a prompt saying “100% Drunk” appears. Feed the wild Ceratosaurus Superior or Extraordinary Kibble, and this dinosaur will be yours to command.
