~ Drake on Oviraptor

The Oviraptor (o-vih-RAP-tor) is a Dinosaur in ARK: Survival Evolved.

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.

NoteHelena.png
Wild
Oviraptor philodator is a small-to-medium sized carnivore, common in the jungles and beaches of the island. Despite being a carnivore, Oviraptor's primary source of food is eggs, which it steals from nests. Unlike any other creature, Oviraptor seems to be able to surreptitiously steal these eggs usually without attracting the attention of the irate mother.
Domesticated
Too small to fight or ride, Oviraptor is still one of the more commonly tamed creatures on the island. Its pheromone release ensures an increased stream of eggs from nearby mated wild creatures, for breeding, eating, or cooking kibble. Oviraptors will also autonomously do the dirty work of collecting them on your behalf without attracting unwanted attention. They also make quite adorable sounds, so many children simply like to keep them as rather strange companions.
Known Information
In an incredible feat of natural selection, Oviraptor seems to emit a chemical pheromone that affects many creatures as an aphrodisiac. Mated creatures are much more likely to... "create" new eggs while Oviraptor is around, which allows the oviraptor to go about its business unperturbed.
~ Helena

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Very common throughout the island, Oviraptor spends its days prancing around gleefully. Similarly to the Mesopithecus, the creature flees at a rather quick pace if one gets too close or if attacked.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Oviraptor is a small theropod that can often be spotted by survivors wandering across the island in search of its favorite food, eggs. It sports a crest on its head, presumably to attract mates, and a beak meant for cracking eggshells open to reach the nutritious contents within.




Color Scheme and Regions

This section displays the Oviraptor's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Oviraptor. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Oviraptor will randomly spawn with to provide an overall range of its natural color scheme. Hover your cursor over a color to display its name and ID.

Server admins can use this region information in the Console Command "cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID>".
For example, "cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6" would color the Oviraptor's "body" magenta.

Wild Stats Level-up

Type in values of a wild creature to see on which stats it's emphasized. Green values on a high-level creature are very good for breeding. If you have already tamed your creature you can try to recover the breeding-stats with an external tool.[1]

Oviraptor
The stat-calculator does not work in the mobile-view, see here for alternatives: Apps

Note that after the creature is tamed it gets bonuses on some stats depending on the taming effectiveness. This makes it hard to retrieve the levels on a tamed creature, so this tool is only for wild ones, but gives a first impression, how well the stats are distributed.

Preferred Food[edit | edit source]

Unlike all other creatures, the Oviraptor can only be tamed by feeding it eggs (standard or fertilized). Once tamed, it will eat raw meat like any other carnivore.

Heavier eggs are preferred.

Rank of Preference Egg Food Amount
1 Giganotosaurus Egg.png Giganotosaurus Egg 300
2 Quetzal Egg.png Quetzal Egg 200
3 Rex Egg.png Rex Egg 200
4 Spino Egg.png Spino Egg 137.5
5 Bronto Egg.png Bronto Egg 250
6 Carno Egg.png Carno Egg 137.5
7 Dilo Egg.png Other Eggs 2.5 x Normal Food
Value of Egg

The Oviraptor will eat the first egg in its inventory unless there's a Giganotosaurus, Quetzal, Bronto, Spino, Rex or Carno egg.

KO Strategy[edit | edit source]

Oviraptors are small, quick, and fragile. Their small size and high speed make them difficult to hit once attacked, so try to get it into a corner before you start firing on it. At lower levels, a Wooden Club.png Wooden Club may be preferable, and a bow could potentially kill it in a single shot.

The best way to tame one is to Bola.png Bola it first, then either tranq or slingshot it down.

Alternatively, it can be picked up by an Argentavis.png Argentavis or Pteranodon.png Pteranodon and moved somewhere safe or shot at by another player.

A tamed Scorpion.png Pulmonoscorpius will be able to trap the Oviraptor by standing above it allowing you to easily knock it out.

Combat[edit | edit source]

This section describes how to fight against the Oviraptor.

General[edit | edit source]

Very easy. Just shoot it. It does not have much health.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Being a very fast and very small target, the best way to tame an Oviraptor is to somehow corner and/or trap it in some way (such as against a rock or cliff). If you have a flying mount, construct a fenced in area, pick up the Oviraptor with your flying mount, and drop it inside the fence. Even a Pteranodon can pick up an Oviraptor.

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

A Bola to keep it in one place, then using whatever tool to knock it out.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

The oviraptor is not hostile or dangerous at all. Just make sure you don't run into more dangerous dinos while attempting to tame an oviraptor.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

Everything. (Except falling, because they do not take fall damage.)

Utility[edit | edit source]

An egg icon will appear under nearby tamed dinos, indicating that the Oviraptor's effect of reducing mating times.

Once tamed, if placed on wander an egg icon will appear above it and nearby tamed dinos (appears not to work on Scorpions and Mantis currently), possibly indicating an increase in egg production or a reduction in mating times for breeding dinos. The icon currently appears on everything including mammals but only while it is on wandering and NOT following anything.

However, encumbering the Oviraptor while it is set to wander still generates the egg boosting effect. Useful for effectively locking it in place inside a breeding pen without fear of it escaping or being pushed through fences by larger dinos. Simply move it in to position, fill its inventory with stone or wood then set it to wander.

The Oviraptor can be used to steal eggs from wild or enemy dinos. Whistling attack my target on an egg will cause the Oviraptor to pick it up and bring it back to you.

The Oviraptor will not collect tamed dino eggs!

Spotlight[edit | edit source]

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

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

  • Even though the Oviraptor eats eggs for taming, the babies do eat meat.
  • It is possible to tame an Oviraptor with just Dodo Eggs; however, Taming Effectiveness will take a hit.
  • Dossier released on 07/31/2015[2]
  • Oviraptors collect eggs from unclaimed dinos left for slaughter, or did as of about a week ago from 02/29/2016.
  • Oviraptor means "egg thief" or "egg robber" in Latin. It got this name because the first fossils of Oviraptor were found on what was believed to be a nest of eggs belonging to the small ceratopsid Protoceratops. Discoveries in the 1990s revealed that these eggs in fact belonged to Oviraptor, meaning it had died while brooding its eggs and not trying to steal them as was originally thought.
  • Also it seems Oviraptors have an innate inability to walk through standard sized door frames. If you need it in a specific room, build a large stone gate or don't put the door in until the raptor is.
