Basic Kibble is a Kibble Kibble made from any Extra Small Egg Extra Small Egg.


The main use of this Kibble Kibble is to feed it to a creature that you are taming. Kibble has a higher taming effect than other food like Berries Berries or Meat Meat, meaning the taming meter will rise faster, while also dropping the Taming Effectiveness less, resulting in more extra levels when the taming process is finished. This Kibble can be crafted in the Cooking Pot Cooking Pot or Industrial Cooker Industrial Cooker.

Currently, this Kibble is used to forcefully tame Dilophosaur Dilophosaur, Dodo Dodo, Kairuku Kairuku, Parasaur Parasaur, and Phiomia Phiomia and to passively tame Mesopithecus Mesopithecus.

For other creatures, this Kibble will be valued less than regular Meat Meat and Berries Berries (only 66% of their effectiveness) and thus is not advised to be used for those.

See Taming Taming for more info about the taming process.


The following Eggs have a size of Extra Small:
