Dino Dossiers

From ARK: Survival Evolved Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
I wouldn't trust everything in those dossiers, information is hard to run by on the Island, and many things are left to conjecture, rumour, or assumption based on fantastic tales.
~ The Right Hand on Dossiers

The Dino Dossiers are a collection of notes on the various different creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved. You can find them scattered around the landscape of The Island, Scorched Earth and Aberration as collectables among other Explorer Notes. The dossiers tell you about the behavior and habits of all creatures present in ARK, written by the survivor Helena, who is mostly correct with her observations. Almost every creature can be tamed, but it differs what and how much the certain creature needs to eat in order to be domesticated.

Earlier in the game-development you used to earn the dossiers when you killed or tamed the local wildlife.

For more creature information, see:

Note: There is no correlation between the release date of the dossier and the release date of the creature itself. There is no way to predict how long it will take for a creature to be released by looking at the release date for their dossier. For example, the Sabertooth Salmon released within two months of its dossier publication, while it has taken over half a year for others to be released.
