The Dermis is an item in Extinction.

Overview[edit | edit source]

A Dermis can be collected by using a Taxidermy Tool (Extinction).png Taxidermy Tool Extinction Icon.png on a tamed Creature belonging to the tribe that the survivor is harvesting from or harvestable corpse. The Dermis can then be displayed in a Small Taxidermy Base (Extinction).png Taxidermy Base Extinction Icon.png.

A dermis will retain the following from the struck Creature since the last change:

Note that dermis can only be collected once by a player.


Noncollectable Dermis[edit | edit source]

While majority of the creature can be harvested for dermis, specific creature/boss like Rockwell.png Rockwell and Overseer.png Overseer (Along with its transformed state) cannot be harvested for its dermis as either their corpse vanishes immediately on death, or their corpse are unreachable (unless they are force tamed).

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • While a dermis may only be collected once per living/deceased creature, a newborn's dermis can be collected up to four times (Baby, Juvenile, Adolescent, Adult) as long as the tool is struck on them on that growing phase. Be mindful that the tools may potentially kill very low health babies with a single strike, so use it with caution.
  • The dermis of non-tameable creatures only display on their native maps. Therefore, creatures like the Broodmother cannot be displayed on maps like Aberration or Ragnarok. Transferring boss dermis to another map will erase the contents so that bringing the dermis back to the original map will not restore it's functionality. Transferring a dermis to any map, even it the new map also has that boss fight will destroy that dermis.
