Anthills (Crystal Isles).png

Anthills are a renewable resource in ARK: Survival Evolved. They are found scattered across the desert and savanna biomes of the Crystal Isles map, and are always surrounded by  Titanomyrma spawns, with  Dung Beetles frequently spawning nearby as well.


Anthills can be harvested using Melee Damage.pngFists,  Tools and  Creatures. Harvesting an anthill produces  Clay,  Chitin and  Sand; using a hatchet gives more chitin, while using a pick gives more clay, with sand being distributed equally. For more information on harvesting each resource, and the tames that specialize in them, please see the links to the resources themselves. For information on the mechanics of harvesting, please see Renewable resources.

Trivia stuff[]

  • Despite being built and inhabited by Giant Ants, these Anthills more closely resemble termite mounds.
  • There is an enormous geographical feature comprised of colossal anthills in the Central Oasis region; despite its appearance, it cannot be harvested or interacted with, and no insects are present in the immediate vicinity.
