You need to kill all but the alpha (since it would be the highest level). Upon doing so it will be passive towards you and your tame. You can hop off then feed it meat. Not sure what kibble it uses. An awesome tame comes out around 5k health and 3k stam in 150s from what I’ve seen and scales cliffs and structures extremely quickly. One of the most entertaining dinos I’ve used in a long while
You can only tame the alpha monkey, the one that has the glow. You will have to kill the entire pack EXCEPT the alpha. You'll want to get it below 85% of its health. When you have done that you passive tame it with its preferred food, like exceptional kibble. I'd guess it eats meat too. Hope it helps!
To all the people saying the dinopithecus sucks, or this isn’t a dinosaur blah blah blah..kick rocks. One this isn’t 2017, we have a whole Arsenal of dinos that aren’t dinos, too include dragons and space whales, even baby stealing platapus, so get dumped on. Two, the same old same old two legged reptiles and 4 legged mammals were getting old. People grew tired of using the same whole rexs for bosses and thaylas for caves. This is a breath of fresh air, and it’s a modest one at that. HP and Damage is on par with thyla/shadowmane, but with interesting twists such as helmets instead of saddle(more armor but degrades) and can throw poop and grenades. I tamed my first 145 yesterday and I’ve been completely happy with it in these early days of the new dlc!
The Dinopithecus is a tamable and ridiable giant baboon in the Lost Island free DLC. After ARK ran a community voting contest, this creature was the top voted of the ten semi-finalists with 6,214 votes (and 35% of the total vote).
