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.
For full Jerboa taming details, get the taming calculator app.
DO NOT believe that this reduces weight on its inventory. As of today AUG 2020 I tested stacks of meats and berries etc, IT DOESNT. But instead it increases spoil timer of foods, meats and berries on its inventory. ⬆️ to prevent ppl from false informations!
For those of you who play Ark Mobile, hope of obtaining one of these fluffy little dessert kittens is not lost. They spawn in dungeons. Go to the obelisk, kill one, but don’t harvest the body. Instead, check it’s inventory and take the implant, because you cannot tame things in dungeons. Finish the dungeon or whatever, then go to any of the three obelisks and revive it, they are not hard to knock out, I just use a club, my fists, or an equals buck kick. Feed your new friend berries until he realizes you WILL NOT leave until he joins your army and becomes the new king and sits on the throne in the shrine castle you have built for his royal highness. So, yeah. Those of you upset that the dossier is in the game and the jerboa isn’t, it is. You just gotta work for it, but it’s worth it. (Yes, I do have a jerboa castle and a large royal family. They’re like pringles, you can never have just one.)
The weight reduction does work. However the actual numerical weight of the items don't change. When placed in its inventory the weight looks the same. But when you pick it up after placing heavy items in its inventory look to see how much weight your actually carrying when it's on your shoulders. I promise you'll be happy
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.
