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 Quetzal is a behemoth of a creature with base stats that top the charts (health, stamina, weight, and torpor). The Quetzal's platform saddle make it an excellent choice for a mobile air base or even a caravan for transporting and gathering metal and other supplies on harder to reach areas. While its melee strength isn't as high as some might expect, its health and ability to carry weapons make it suitable to use as a war bird. Its preference for Rex Kibble make it difficult to tame, and even more so difficult to knock out in the air.

What does a Quetzal eat? In ARK: Survival Evolved, the Quetzal eats Exceptional Kibble, Rex Kibble, Raw Mutton, Raw Prime Meat, Cooked Lamb Chop, Cooked Prime Meat, Raw Prime Fish Meat, Raw Meat, Cooked Prime Fish Meat, Cooked Meat, Raw Fish Meat, and Cooked Fish Meat.
