The Daeodon is one of the Creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved. While not currently available, this creature will be added in a future update.

Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Dossier[edit | edit source]

  • Wild: Daeodon Comedentis is the largest known species of entelodont, an omnivorous family of ancient mammals that are sometimes referred to as “Hell Pigs.” Even though Daeodon has as many similarities to modern Hippopotamidae as it does to Suina, I’ve found that to be a suitably fitting nickname.

Daeodon is as mean as it looks, and any survivor who wanders too close to its feeding grounds will find that out the hard way. As an omnivore with a voracious appetite, Daeodon scavenges, forages, and hunts to survive. It has little qualms when it comes to its diet, and that has helped it thrive both on the Island’s dry grasslands as well as sandy ecosystems.

Its temper hasn’t hurt either, as many would-be predators would rather seek out less vicious prey. Its uncommonly high metabolism enables it to heal very rapidly, making it a difficult beast to bring down or even tranquilize.

  • Domesticated: Many tribes have made excellent use of Daeodon packs within their war parties, not only because of its fierce nature but due to its remarkable ability to rapidly heal itself. I’ve theorized that this healing factor is why it seems to have such a high rate of food consumption, which also makes it difficult to maintain; Daeodon may well eat its owners out of house and home. Far more extraordinary, however, is that this rapid regeneration is evidently able to affect nearby allies, and consequently worth the upkeep!

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Daeodon is a large mammal with hunched shoulders and cloven hooves. It has a massive head and long jaws with fearsome tusk like front teeth for tearing both meat and plant matter and rows of molars at the back of the mouth for grinding. With its massive size and nightmarish teeth, it is easy to forget this animal is part of the pig family.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Daeodon, see the relevant Wikipedia article

  • Dino Dossier revealed on 10/04/2016.[1]
  • The dossier says that the Daedon can "thrive both on the Island’s dry grasslands as well as sandy ecosystems" suggesting that it will be available on both The Island and Scorched Earth

Trivia not relevant for the game[edit | edit source]

  • The dossier says that Daeodon has as many similarities to modern Hippopotamidae as it does to Suina, this sentence refers to how many people call this creature "Hell Pig" even though they're a whole different animal, but still closely related to pigs and hippos; both are members of artiodactyl (even-toed ungulate).
