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.

While the Jerboa has little practical use, some survivors enjoy its companionship as a cuddly, shoulder-mounted pet. This mini kangaroo-like creature is able to sense upcoming weather changes and its behavior will indicate when a tribe might need to prepare. The Jerboa is easy to tame, however, low torpor means survivors need to pay close attention to it while taming.

What does a Jerboa eat? In ARK: Survival Evolved, the Jerboa eats Plant Species Y Seed, Crops, Fresh Barley, Fresh Wheat, or Soybean, Dried Wheat, Mejoberry, and Berries.
