Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Dossier[edit | edit source]

This dossier section is intended to be an exact copy of what the survivor Helena, the author of the dossiers has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creatures.

Occupying a space in the low-to-middle end of the food chain, Electrophorus beluadomito is a carnivorous swimmer that feeds mostly off of shellfish and small fish. Despite its common name, it is actually a very long knifefish, and not an eel. It does not provide much meat, so many predators simply leave it be. Unlike most predators, it does not use brute strength to bring down its prey, but instead releases an electrical charge around itself to knock its prey unconscious. Alone, this can take out a small creature. When attacking together, Electrophorus can even bring down the larger ocean lifeforms, then feed as a group.
By far, the most common use of Electrophorus is to subdue large ocean creatures. Knocking out a Plesiosaur or other giant deep-sea leviathan can be incredibly difficult, thus many tribes employ small schools of Electrophorus to shock targets into submission!

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Electrophorus is a long eel like fish with a fin running from the back of its head to its abdomen. Its mouth is packed with sharp teeth to attack small fish and shellfish that make up its diet.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

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

  • This dossier was revealed on 07/27/2015 on Steam.[1]
  • Electrophorus is one of the only creatures in ARK with a genus that still exists today, such as the Coelacanth or Achatina. The real electric eel, as its name implies, is also capable of producing electric discharges to kill prey and deter predators.
  • Unlike in the real world, Electrophorus does not look like a knifefish, an order of fish that Electrophorus belongs to; but like the unrelated moray eels.
  • The Electrophorus is a simple capacitive generator invented by Alessandro Volta, who also coined its name, meaning Electricity Bearer
