Hide is a resource that can be acquired by harvesting corpses with most tools and dinosaurs. It is dropped by most Creatures that aren't Fish or Invertebrates.

Gathering[edit | edit source]

When harvesting a corpse without a dino, using a Metal Hatchet is the most effective tool to use. Hide can also be harvested with a Stone Hatchet or Picks. See the chart below for the most effective ways to harvest Hide.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Phiomias can yield large amounts of hide and Meat, however, they run from players when attacked.
  • Parasaurs hold no inherent danger, as they will flee upon initiating, often getting itself stuck on rocks or trees. This opens it up to be easily killed or knocked out.
  • The Dodo and Lystrosaurus are both good sources of Hide early game. Dilos can be included if you have access to a Spear or Bow.
