The Taxidermy Tool is an item in ARK: Survival Evolved's DLC Extinction.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Taxidermy Tool is used to collect the Dermis Extinction Icon.png of any Creature with a harvestable corpse. Simply hitting a tamed Creatures is enough to collect their Dermis Extinction Icon.png. The name of the dermis is determined by the named creature, either living or dead, at the point of hitting with it.

A Creature's Dermis can only be collected once. However, dermis collected from hitting baby creatures with it counts as a separate dermis, meaning a survivor raising a baby can keep record of it as a "Baby", "Juvenile", "Adolescent" and finally, "Adult", making it a total of 4 collectible dermis per growth stage for a bred creature.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In Singleplayer mode, you can collect the Dermis from your character's corpse. However the hair and dye does not render when displayed on the Taxidermy Base.
  • When the Taxidermy Tool is used on a corpse for harvesting other resources it will yield more Meat than a Stone Hatchet.
