ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
The Ankylosaurus is, in my opinion, one of the best dinos to tame as a low level. Not only is it the best dino to gether metal, it is also a great taming mount, because it can collect berries and can kill little things like Raptors easy. This will be one of your most used dinos when you get into the higher levels and taming an Anky as soon as you can make the saddle (lvl 40) is highly recommended.
More Ankylosaurus Utility Tips
A handy guide to utility tames:
Achatina- Mainly found in swampy areas. Tame with sweet veggie cake. After tame, produces lots of CP and Org Poly when set to wander.
Anglerfish- found in deep oceans, the anglerfish is relatively hard to tame. It doesn’t require a saddle, and gathers huge quantities of silica pearls
Anky- Found in a plethora of different places. Look in snow, mountain, jungle, desert, etc. A relatively easy knockout tame, the anky is wonderful at gathering metal.
Argentavis- Found in mountains, snow, or desert biomes mainly. Another relatively easy tame, reduces weight for many useful materials. With high weight capacity, they are useful for transporting items or creatures. They also have a smithy in their saddle. Also, on a sadder note, Dilos got into my breeding buIdling and killed my best female 😢
Beelzebufo- Found in swamps mainly. A very easy tame, can gather cementing paste from insects.
Castoroides- Found in swampy areas, some snow biomes, and rivers/lakes. Not the easiest tame, but not to hard. When tamed, they gather wood like a pro! They have a smithy saddle.
Direbear- Found in redwoods and snow biomes. Lives alongside dangerous creatures, making it tricky to tame, but once tamed, it’s like a metal sickle that gathers 5x the fiber
Doedicurus- Found in redwoods, mountains, snow, desert, volcano. A relatively easy tame, although if it takes too much damage, it will roll up, drastically increasing the torpor it takes. Once tamed, it is a beast at gathering obsidian and stone
Dunkleosteus- Difficult tame thanks to its heavy armor. An oceanic tame, they are the anky/Doedic of the sea, gathering large amounts of metal and stone
Karkinos- found in Aberration and Val and CI and Genesis. in my opinion, these are utility tames. They are difficult to tame due to the fact that you can’t use normal tranquilizers. Once tamed, they can carry a maximum of two creatures. Carrying doedics or ankys in their claws can be a very efficient way to get metal.
Mammoth- Found in snow. Not too hard to tame, and gathers wood very effectively!
Moschops- found on beaches and forests. can harvest many different materials effectively. You can choose which materials your Moschops can harvest better
Quetzal-very hard tame, but doable, especially with a tribe. Has astounding weight and is great for transport!
Snow Owl- Easy knockout tame found in extinction snow biome. When tamed, can heal other creatures and is a great travel mount.
Therizinosaurus- Challenging tame found in jungles. Can gather wood, thatch and fiber quite well.
Thorny Dragon- Easy tame found in deserts. A good tame for gathering wood on SE, a map lacking many normal wood gatherers.

First ankys are good at gathering metal but you sill get a set amount of metal from a node. 220% is fine anything more than points in that is a waste. People have for years not understood that.
Second keep all the metal on your anky never transfer while mining. Ankys have reduced weight carrying ore whatever dino you use to carry the anky with dont transfer the ore.
Third its better to have a low level anky and low level argent than no anky at all.
Fourth the best place to get metal by far is abberation using crabs to carry your anky you can get tens of thousands of metal ore in 30 minutes its just insane.
Fifth again anything over 220% melee is a waste in skill points I would recommend 220% melee the rest HP a dead anky isnt good to anyone.
Thats my experience in around 4k hours all solo pvp official player trust me I know!!!
I'm not sure If this is obvious to everyone else but I realised its 100% worth it, not only can they carry soooo much more metal than you, they also don't have durability like your weak little hatchet so you don't have to bring an extra three on your volcano trip.
Give your anky tons of berries and/or veggie cakes, they totally deserve it!
