ARK: Survival Evolved

Dino Dossier: Achatina – Snail


Today’s new Dossier shows the Achatina, a pre-historic snail. It will continually release cementing paste when tamed, though it won’t be rideable. Those survivors who prefer a more rustic experience will also have a chance to experience a true Bear Grylls moment, when they’re hungry enough to go hunting snails for what little meat they offer.

Common Name: Achatina
Species: Achatina limusegnis
Time: Holocene
Diet: Herbivore
Temperament: Passive
Tameable: Yes
Rideable: No
  • Wild: Found mostly in marshes and jungles, Achatina Limusegnis is a very slow, very non-threatening land mollusk. It might be the safest creature on the island to hunt and while it only provides a small amount of meat and chitin, an easy meal is always good on the island.
  • Domesticated: There is a very disgusting, but useful, fact about Achatina that causes tribes to seek to tame them: its secretions are chemically similar to the 'Cementing Paste' used by many tribes for building materials. Tamed Achatina naturally build up this slime over time, which can then be collected at the tribe's convenience.
  • Known Information: Unlike nearly every other creature on the island, Achatina does not defecate normally. Instead, it secretes a thick sticky substance. Achatina leaves trails of this slime, but the trails are so thin that they crumble to dust quickly.
