ARK's base taming speed on PC, PS4, and Xbox is now doubled, meaning 1× is as fast as what 2× was previously. Dododex has been updated to reflect this. Use the "presets" dropdown for common multipliers.

I tamed a lvl 15 female one and named it Nova and she was really good. She killed a whole pack of lvl 20 carbonemys without taking any damage and I didn’t do anything except stand there and watch in shock and awe. This is a MUST tame for everyone who reads this. I was only lvl 10 at the time I tamed it and now I’m lvl 40 and this creature has never failed to impress me.
If you get stuck by an raptor ,the dimorphon will kill the raptor fast. My dimorphon Danny saved my live seven times. Don’t go in a cave solo without an dimorphon. If you get nocked out your dimo will protect you.
This isn’t really a tip but I had this dimorphodon named Eagle who was super quirky and occasionally killed things that tried to kill me from compys to allos. On day a theri wandered onto my wooden base and guess what happened. 20 of my BEST tames were slaughtered along with my best Iguanodon for travel. Eagle tried to put a stop to it but was killed in the process. All my other creatures were passive. There wasn’t even an implant to revive her with. D: I was so filled with rage, I trapped it and killed it slowly and painfully with my lvl 131 dodo. Rule? Kill and aggressive creatures before they kill ur pets.
So it turns out that if you set this thing to aggressive and have it perch on your shoulder, it can shout at you to warn of incoming danger, which the Mesopithecus(Monkey) is also capable of, but will instead go “TAH! OOH- OOH!”. This is pretty useful in case you are near an animal that you won’t be able to survive an encounter with and don’t realize it. Dimorphodon will also throw a rather hard bite at your enemy to give you a fair hand in escaping, and may kill other creatures looking to prevent you returning home, however Mesopithecus is a better guardian because your monkey will throw balls of poop that slow the predator down, giving you the upper hand should it be that you should stand no chance should you decide to kill the predator. Either way both are quite effective at vocally warning you of danger ahead of time so you have time to correct your position to a safer location.
