Ark: Lost Island Dinopithecus – Stats & Details

The official description of the Dinopithecus reads, “this baboon bruiser defends its master with remarkable ferocity. Dinopithecus will sweep you up with its tail and carry you up sheer walls on its back. Tame a troop of them, to unleash a hail of droppings packing a parasitic payload capable of shutting down enemy Tek”.

Unfortunately, the stats for the Dinopithecus will vary, but thanks to YouTuber Anthomnia, we’ve got a rough idea of how the creature compares to others. When at Level 120, the Dinopithecus has the following stats:

  • Health = 4650.3
  • Stamina = 2480.0
  • Oxygen = 300.0
  • Food = 3360.0
  • Weight = 504.0
  • Melee Damage = 336%
  • Movement Speed = 100%
  • Torpidity = 4884.5

Ark: Lost Island Dinopithecus – How To Tame

The Dinopithecus can be found in packs, which means taming one isn’t going to be easy. If you’re lucky enough to find one roaming around on its own, it shouldn’t pose much of a threat. But nine times out of ten, the Dinopithecus is going to be with a pack.

So, how do you tame a Dinopithecus? Well, each pack has an alpha, so you’ll need to kill the alpha and possibly the remaining members of the pack until the final Dinopithecus realises you are now the alpha.

From this point onwards you are able to passively tame the creature with Kibble or Berries. For more details on all of the new creatures included in the new Ark expansion, check out Anthomnia’s video below.
