The Thylacoleo (thy-lak-o-lee-oh) is a creature that you will encounter in ARK Survival Evolved. If you are interested in this type of dinosaur, you can check out some basic information and other details about it right now. At the moment, the creature is not currently released in the game yet, so more info on it will be exposed in a later update.

Basic Info


Wild: Thylacoleo furtimorsus is a giant and strong marsupial that you can catch sight of it roaming around the trees for hunting. It is considered as an apt climber due to its long claws, and Thylacoleo uses that feature to its advantage when it goes hunting. It’s able to climb the trees and wait a bit to pounce on a target.

Domesticated: Thylacoleo is a fairly powerful mount and it has the skill to climb trees, which makes it very helpful for traveling across and that’s a reason why the advanced tribes often domesticate it. Some small attacking parties especially like Thylacoleo because it’s perfect for ambushes and unjust battles

Known Information: The strong jaws are the most outstanding fighting skill of Thylacoleo. After chomping the prey,  its jaw can be locked in a powerful grip that can keep most of smaller targets in a place. After, this creature begins to attack the prey using its pointed claws. When it needs to run away from a battle, it will utilize the hind legs to take a leap back to the safe place among some trees.

This creature is known as the marsupial lion and it is a strong hunting predator native to high redwood forests of the island. It chases a half-arboreal lifestyle because it chambers and jumps between the trees. It becomes an intimidating ambush predator due to its powerful bite and sharp teeth. It can jump from above to squeeze the necks of prey.

The Thylacoleo was initially launched on September 30, 2015

Although Thylacoleo is just like a lion or a giant rodent, it’s still a marsupial and it resembles kangaroos and koalas in Australia.

In Latin, the name Thylacoleo means “Pouch Lion”, alluding to the nickname of it, which is known as marsupial lion

Comparing to its body weight, Thylacoleo probably has one of the most powerful biting forces on this island

Thylacoleo is able to climb trees and this can become a new mechanic that hasn’t been carried out yet.

The game now adds more red wood trees, and this will help the creatures like the Tapejara lock onto these suggesting. The Thylacoleo can use a mechanic like this.
