Keratin is a resource in ARK: Survival Evolved. It is the main constituent of mammalian hair, finger and toe nails, claws, paws, hooves, horns, nose horns of rhinos, spines of hedgehogs, baleen whales, beaks and feathers of birds, scales and the outer armor of reptiles.
Gathering[edit | edit source]
Keratin can be acquired by harvesting corpses with most tools and dinosaurs.
The most efficient way to harvest Keratin is by using a tamed Sabertooth or Direwolf with high melee damage. Another highly efficient tool for harvesting is the Metal Hatchet, but it can be harvested with a Stone Hatchet and Picks as well. Other low level items will only occasionally harvest Keratin.
