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.

Fun fact: megalosaurus (name translates to “big lizard”) was the first true dinosaur found. Discovered by Richard Owen, he thought it was quadrupedal (walked on all fours) and resembled a crocodile-lion cross. Later he would correct his data and soon classify this group of extinct line of ancient lizards as “Dinosaurs”.
Tame the mega during the day! It is extremly slower during the day due to wanting a rest. It is a very strong dino, it has been tested to be even stronger than the allo! Be careful if you tame it at night ;) caw
The megalosaurus is one of the strongest therapods, but its nocturnal sleeping pattern make it significantly less effective during the day. The megalosaurus can bite and even latch onto enemies — including humans — and swing them around, hindering their ability to move. This carnivore is stronger than a Carno or a Rex at night, but during the day, it is much more slow and sluggish.
