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.

The Lystrosaurus is a small, common herbivore often used as a pet. While the Lystrosaurus will not fight, it can be useful to have around — or as a companion on short hunting trips — as it increases experience of nearby creatures and survivors. The Lystrosaurus must be tamed passively, making it very easy to acquire by any survivor with a handful of Rare Flowers.

What does a Lystrosaurus eat? In ARK: Survival Evolved, the Lystrosaurus eats Rare Flower, Mejoberry, and Berries.
