The Entelodon is a fan-made Creature for ARK: Survival Evolved. While not available, this creature was alternately added in update 257.0, as the Daeodon.

Basic Info[]


This section is intended to be an exact copy of what the survivor Helena Walker, the author of the dossiers, has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creature.


Entelodon might be one of the most curious looking creatures to exist, looking a lot like a pig this creature is believed to be more closely related to hippos and whales. A monstrous beast in looks and attitude Entelodon hunts live prey and has been witnessed scarring off small animals away from their kill to gain an easy meal. They are also very aggressive towards each other and are always seen roaming around with wounds old and new from battles between fellow Entelodon. These creatures aren't picky about what they eat either, they're cannibalistic. So it's not unusual to see an adult carrying around the corpse of an infant to feast on at its leisure.

Known Information

Hogs of War; It's not really advised to keep anymore than two of these creatures at a time and then it needs to be a male and a female. Entelodon will literally fight to the death, especially if two males are kept together.


Entelodon is a good way of getting around the island and while it isn't good as a carry weight it's speed makes it efficient for getting away from predators or to charge into battle. They also serve very well as guards due to their territorial nature they will see off anything unknown to them or anything they see is a threat. Entelodon can hold their own too, which means a potential owner will be well protected while out and about, their jaws are bone crushing and it's been documents that they can actually fit the head of another Entelodon into their mouth.

The Entelodon should be knocked out and preferably enclosed in an area


This section describes how to fight against the Entelodon.



A good strategy may be to stand on a cliff and shoot, either tranquilizer arrows/darts, or, to kill.


A bow is recommended as it hasn't got any spit, if you stay at a distance you should with a few shots take it down. If you have something like a gun that would be much better.


It has a very strong bite which can sometimes injured the opponents immediately.
