The Dimophodon is an adorable little flying creature you can tame in Ark Survival Evolved. However, the Dimorphodon is more than its tiny body and cute chompers. This mini flying dino can be pretty helpful. Not only is a Dimorphodon great as a battle companion that fights from your shoulder, but it can also harvest resources for you, act as an attack dog (or a whole pack of them), or sit there and look pretty. Below we’ll discuss how to tame a Dimorphodon in Ark Survival Evolved.
Taming a Dimorphodon in Ark Survival Evolved
Taming a Dimorphodon is relatively easy, assuming you have the Movement Speed to keep up with them. Though they are pretty small, a Bola does work on them. When you find a Dimorphodon in the wild, sneak up on it carefully. Since they’re so tiny, missing your target with a Bola can be easy. Get your bola ready and fire!
Pull out your taming tool of choice once you’ve got your Dimorphodon immobilized. Below, you can find some possible methods for knocking it out.
