Raptor Taming Process

One of the most iconic dinosaurs is the raptor. They are deadly, fast, and very smart. Almost every new player is scrambling to tame one as fast as they can in Ark: Survivor Evolved owing to the fact that you can ride them. In order to tame one, you will need to prepare the items. Let’s get to it

To begin, the Raptor can be locked in place using bolas. With Bola, you can lock any small or medium-sized dinosaur for 30 seconds. Once the creature is locked in place, the real taming can begin. It is necessary to knock out the bolad creature in order to tame it. A bow with tranq arrows works at low levels. In order to be able to handle a raptor over level 90, you need tranq arrows and a crossbow. Make sure to aim at it’s head

How to Hatch Parasaur Eggs in ARK

Obtain the egg

When you have a male and female dinosaur, Put both dinos next to each other and set them to “mating” via the command menu.

Mating has a cooldown, so make sure it hasn’t mated recently. There is an 18- to 48-hour breeding interval for Raptors.

During incubation, keep the egg at a steady temperature.

  • Air Conditioners x 4
  • Egg Incubator

The temperature and time at which you incubate an egg will vary. The best option here is to use an air conditioner or an egg incubator. You will be able to regulate the temperature with their help.

Temperatures between 20°C and 28°C are recommended for the egg. It usually takes about two hours for the little raptor baby to hatch according to official 1x settings. Once that’s done, you need to keep adding meat to its inventory for about four hours.

As soon as it reaches juvenile status, it is able to feed itself from a feeder on its own. The maturation process takes about a day and a half.

Additional Information about the Raptor


A subspecies of Utahraptor called Utahraptor prime lives on the island and is extremely aggressive. With its sharp teeth and enlarged foreclaws, it attacks smaller prey in small packs. It is common for pack leaders to use vocal signals as battle cries when they hunt in packs. You should be prepared to run or fight if you hear the Utahraptor’s call! Repeated calls will result in a much more intense attack by the pack. Swarming around their prey before it has a chance to react, Utahraptors are one of the faster creatures on the island. In this subspecies, the large curved talon on the second toe appears particularly suited for dealing significant damage. In rapid succession, Utahraptors usually slash and bite their prey.


Utahraptors make up for their small size with their ingenuity. In order to pin its prey to the ground rather than chase it around, Utahraptor pounces on its prey and pins it down. In spite of their normally aggressive nature, Utahraptors have become a primary combat mount for raiding bands and scouts for larger groups. They are hard to tame, but they are fiercely loyal, claim those who ride Utahraptor. Once tamed, they require a steady supply of meat to survive.
