Keratin is a resource in ARK: Survival Evolved. It is the main material of claws, hooves, horns, 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. A very good spot to harvest Keratin is on the surface of Abberation, and in the entrances to the Surface.
