The Tusoteuthis is a massive, aggressive squid found in the depths of the oceans. In battle, the Tusoteuthis can grab its prey and knock it unconcious, siphoning its blood to gain health. Once tamed, the ink from a Tusoteuthis can be used as a constant Oil source. Some survivors choose to hunt the Tusoteuthis for its Oil.

What does a Tusoteuthis eat? In ARK: Survival Evolved, the Tusoteuthis eats 50 Black Pearls, 30 Cooked Prime Meat, 20 Raw Meat, 30 Cooked Prime Fish Meat, 30 Cooked Meat, 20 Raw Fish Meat, and 30 Cooked Fish Meat.
