This pet food recipe has been carefully designed to give balanced nutrition to almost any creature native to the island. Includes plant fibers to help with digestion and egg to bind the mix. Humans have difficulty digesting this.

Kibble are food items used to tame creatures more quickly and with higher affinity, allowing players to save time and end up with better stats on their tamed pet. Most creatures have their own individual favorite type of kibble that maximizes taming effects. However, using a non-favorite kibble is even worse than giving Raw Meat or Berries.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Kibbles can be used as food when taming a creature. Although all kibble types will technically work to tame all creatures, certain kibbles will work better for certain creatures. Using the wrong kibble is only 2/3 as effective as using the creature's regular food and will instead decrease the taming effectiveness.

The order of effectiveness (in terms of taming duration) in food for taming creatures is:

Food Taming Speed Taming Effectiveness
Kibble.png Preferred Kibble 5x Speed ★★★★★
Raw Mutton.png Raw Mutton 3.8x Speed ★★★★☆
Raw Prime Meat.png Raw Prime Meat 3x Speed ★★★☆☆
Spoiled Meat.png Spoiled Meat 2x Speed ★★★☆☆ 1
Cooked Prime Meat.png Cooked Prime Meat / Prime Meat Jerky.png Prime Meat Jerky 1.5x Speed ★★☆☆☆
Raw Meat.png Raw Meat 1x Speed ★☆☆☆☆
Cooked Meat.png Cooked Meat / Cooked Meat Jerky.png Cooked Meat Jerky 1x Speed ☆☆☆☆☆
Berries.png Preferred Berries 1x Speed ★★☆☆☆
Advanced Crops.png Preferred Advanced Crops 1x Speed ★★☆☆☆
Berries.png Other Berries 1x Speed ★☆☆☆☆
Advanced Crops.png Other Advanced Crops 1x Speed ☆☆☆☆☆
Kibble.png Other Kibble 0.66x Speed ☆☆☆☆☆

1: Scorpions, Dung Beetles, Spiders, Vultures, and Karkinos only

The favorite kibble fills up 80 points of food, (exceptions: Megalosaurus: 135; Diplocaulus, Daeodon, Kaprosuchus: 120; Bronto, Diplodocus, Woolly Rhino: 53.33; Archaeopteryx: 25; Rock Elemental: 20). Non-favorite kibble fills up 90 or 60 points of food and gives only 1/8 of the taming progress than the favorite kibble. Because of the more food-points it gives, the creature waits longer before eating the next kibble than it would if you were using other food types.

Kibble is also used for imprinting baby dinos. During care, they may want to be hand fed a randomly selected kibble, including any kibble that is not their species' preferred food. For this reason, having as many types of kibble as possible will allow the imprinting rate to increase.

Recipes[edit | edit source]

In-game recipe for kibbles in general

Learning an Engram is not necessary to create kibbles. Follow the same instructions as when cooking with a Cooking Pot.png Cooking Pot or Industrial Cooker.png Industrial Cooker.

In addition to the ingredients listed below, almost all kibble recipes require 2 × Mejoberry.png Mejoberries, 3 × Fiber.png Fiber and a Waterskin (Empty).png Waterskin with at least 25% water in it (any other Water-container works, but will be completely used up regardless of capacity). Quetzal Egg kibble is the exception which requires 100 × Mejoberry.png Mejoberries and 120 × Fiber.png Fiber instead of the aforementioned quantities.

When creating Kibbles in an Industrial Cooker.png Industrial Cooker which is hooked up to a water irrigation system, no waterskin or other water-container is necessary.

In most cases Cooked meat may be replaced by Cooked Fish Meat without any issues. Also any Meat Jerky can be replaced with Salted Jerky, and equally any Prime Meat Jerky may be replaced with Salted Prime Meat Jerky.

Fertilized eggs can also be used to make Kibble, except for Thorny Dragon Eggs, which will give Kibble.png Kibble (Camelsaurus Egg) instead. Breeding creatures is a great way to generate eggs on-demand.

Cooking these kibbles requires a lit Cooking Pot so in addition you need fuel for the fire. It takes 30 seconds to cook 1 kibble in a Cooking Pot.

Kibble Taming Chart[edit | edit source]

Kibble-Chart (v276.0)

Using as regular food[edit | edit source]

Kibble can be used as regular food for tamed dinos. Kibble takes 3 days to spoil, which makes it last longer than most other food types. It also stacks to 100 and weighs little compared to other foods. Kibble can last for very long periods of time when stacked and preserved in a Preserving Bin or Refrigerator (Refrigerator is recommended as the spoilage time is greatly increased).

The amount of food per kibble depends on the type of kibble and whether the kibble is preferred by a particular dino. Most dinos gain 80 food from their preferred kibble, even if other dinos would gain more. There are exceptions; for instance, Daeodons gain 120 food from their preferred kibble (Iguanadon), which normally only gives 90. Aside from being preferred by a dino, kibbles will give either 60 or 90 food per kibble. Kibbles that give 90 food generally require Prime Meat Jerky and as of v257 are: Ankylo, Araneo, Archaeopteryx, Argentavis, Ichthyornis, Iguanodon, Kaprosuchus, Mantis, Megalosaurus, Microraptor, Moth, Oviraptor, Pulminoscorpius, Quetzal, Rex, Spino, Stego, and Tapejara. All other kibbles give 60 food, unless preferred, of course.

Due to these traits, using Kibble as regular food can be useful on some occasions. Like when leaving your creatures behind for long periods of time, as you have to fill the creatures' inventories less often.

However, farming Eggs is still very time consuming and expensive, so generally it is not recommended to use as regular Dino food. When using Kibble for this purpose, it is advised to use Kibble types that are easy to make, like the Dodo Kibble.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • When using Kibble to passive tame by placing it in the last slot of your hotbar, be aware that if a Pegomastax steals it, it will eat the entire stack!
