Today the developers announced the "Titanomyrma". This new arrival in the world of ARK is, as is immediately apparent from the dossier above, an ant. Don't get overexcited though, you won't actually be able to ride it. Hilarious as though that would have been, the devs made the wise choice to stay away from that. In fact, you won't even be able to tame them (good news for the Dodo-Assault-Squad). They will however be an excellent source of chitin, as they'll be quite vulunerable when caught out of position.

- Wild: Titanomyrma is one of the smaller creatures on the island; A frightening thought, when you realize it is the size of a dog. A hive-minded Herbivore, Titanomyrma usually goes about it's business unless provoked. When attacked or threatened, it releases a chemical which alerts all Titanomyrma in a large range to help fight the aggressor.
- Domesticated: Because of its hive mentality, I've not seen any successfully tamed Titanomyrma on the island yet. Fortunately for lone survivors, separated Titanomyrma can be easily picked off for a small supply of Chitin among other valuable natural resources.
- Known Information: I've seen two varieties of Titanomyrma: Drones and soldiers. Drones are smaller, faster and land-bound, and they harvest for the hive. Soldiers are larger, slower and have wings; They defend the hive. If Titanomyrma is akin to other hive-insects, there must be Queens too, but I've yet to encounter such a variant.
