Chalicotherium is a territorial creature that appears in ARK Survival Evolved! If you have a wish to tame this one or fight against him, you should find out some information about this creature as well as some strategies to domesticate it.

Basic Info


Wild: Chalicotherium was seen wandering around in the cold areas of the Island! These creatures usually turn up in small numbers. They are known as a tranquil herbivore who likes to be very lazy for all day or have some fun playing or messing with the family. It’s kind of geographical, but if there is any creature that intrudes its realm, the whole family, including old and young ones will become very aggressive to that creature.

Domesticated: Chalicotherium was taught to become a moving artillery, which is completely different from other creatures that are helpful while launching the attacks to a stronghold. Its playtime behavior is considered as a destructive attack tactic from afar when you give it some boulders for tossing instead of snowballs.

Known Information: When you catch sight of a unit of Chalicotherium playing, it’s such a weird scene. These creatures usually toss some big snowballs or mud-rocks at each other, doing so will bring them so much fun. Some smaller animals will try to dodge Chalicotherium since they are scared of being covered in snow or gravel.


Chalicotherium will turn very aggressive when it’s approached by a certain creature, just like Direbear and Gigantopithecus. The player will get poisoned by its dirty balls, also, his movement speed will be reduced and there are some dirt effects covering around the screen corners


Probably Chalicotherium is the oldest creature that lived on this island. It is considered as a half-blood creature, with a combination of horse, zebra, and gorilla. It is able to use knuckles for moving, just like a gorilla. However, it has the wicked claws while the apes possess hands. The creature uses its claws to pull the bushy and lefty branches into its mouth, however, these claws are so dangerous in the fight. Apparently, the creature is taking some primary wisdom which is just different from an otter because some of the units of them are caught sight of throwing some snowballs at each other. That action can be called a type of war game which is something that demonstrates useful against some aggressive creatures such as Hyaenodon, Direwolves, or Daeodons.

Wild Stats Level-up

Just input any values of an untamed dinosaur to check out which stats it’s stressed. The green values on a creature at a high level indicate that it’s kind of great for breeding. If you’re done domesticating your creature, you can regain the breeding-stats using the tool called ARK Stats Extractor.

Remember, once the creature is domesticated, it will receive some stats based on the effectiveness of taming. This will turn it very difficult to take back some levels on a domesticated animal. For that reason, this tool can be used for only untamed ones.


If you utilize some normal ways like tranquilizing and feeding, you can’t domesticate the Chalicotherium. This creature must be tamed by using non-violent way.

On the final slot of your hotbar, you need to put Beer Jar for feeding it. When you’re about to get closer for feeding it, press key E. Don’t give them all the food needed to domesticate at the same time, you are supposed to wait a bit until the creature gets starved. Then you can give it food once again. Keep doing so until you fill the taming meter.

You can feed Chalicotherium with Stimberries as well, but you should consider it carefully when using that food since it will make the taming progress slower.


Remember, the values are only for optimal instances, they always carry additional supplies.

You can try using an external taming calculator.

After being domesticated, the diet of Chalicotherium will be Berries, which is similar to other herbivores.
