El Escarabajo Pelotero (Dung Beetle en la versión original del juego) es una de las criaturas disponibles en ARK: Survival Evolved.



Esta sección es una copia exacta de lo que Helena Walker ha escrito en sus Notas de explorador. Podrían existir discrepancias entre este texto y los detalles reales de la criatura.


Scarabidae gigas








What magic created the Scarabidae gigas, I cannot say. What I can say is that this creature is a perfect symbiont for advanced human tribes. Coprophagic, it eats mostly useless waste (feces). It metabolizes this waste into a more refined waste product, along with an oily byproduct. The oily byproduct is chemically the same as the oil found in the oceans around the island. Somehow, Scarabidae converts feces into oil. If that wasn't reason enough to worship the Scarabidae, the refined waste product is almost identical to fertilizer from a compost bin.


Scarabidae makes me think humans have been on the island for a long time. Why else would a creature evolve to be such a perfect pet? Most tribes jealously protect their Scarabidae, whom are handily tamed with the skilled use of some well-handled feces. These wondrous little organic biofactories are truly a sustainable, green, eco-friendly source of resources for living off the land. Oil becomes gas, which is generator fuel. Fertilizer means crops, which is human fuel. The Scarabidae can power all aspects of island life!

~ Helena


El Scarabidae gigas es una criatura pasiva, que invertirá sus días paseando por las diferentes cuevas de The Island o en las zonas volcánicas de Ragnarok.


A dung beetle of enormous size, Scarabidae gigas is a vital component of the island's strange ecology. They are most often found in the deep caves, feeding on massive quantities of bat guano and, in turn, being hunted by other giant invertebrates that prowl the dark passages and walls. What dung they don't eat is buried in the soil, fertilizing it and ensuring the regrowth of plants. By means not fully understood, their digestive tracts can convert animal waste into both an oil-like substance and a type of fertilizer.

Color Scheme and Regions

This section displays the Escarabajo Pelotero's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Escarabajo Pelotero. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Escarabajo Pelotero will randomly spawn with to provide an overall range of its natural color scheme. Hover your cursor over a color to display its name and ID.

This information can be used to alter the Escarabajo Pelotero's regions by entering cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID> in the cheat console. For instance, cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6 would color the Escarabajo Pelotero's "shell" magenta.

Aumento de estadísticas al subir nivel en estado salvaje

Escribe los valores de la criatura salvaje para revisar en que estadísticas sobresale más. Los valores marcados con verde en una criatura de alto nivel son muy buenos para la crianza/reproducción. Si ya has domesticado una criatura, puedes intentar recuperar la información que tenía cuando era salvaje con la siguiente herramienta: ARK Stats Extractor.

Nota: después de que la criatura sea domesticada, conseguirá algunas bonificaciones a sus estadísticas dependiendo de la efectividad del domesticado. Esto dificulta el obtener los niveles precisos de una criatura domesticada, por lo que esta calculadora te ayudará mucho, ya que está pensada para dinosaurios salvajes únicamente. Con ella, podrás tener una idea sobre la distribución de las estadísticas de una criatura.

Taming Strategy

Dung Beetles are found in caves and tamed non-violently. They also can be lifted by an Argentavis or Quetzal.

When choosing a target keep in mind that the level of the Dung Beetle is almost irrelevant as a level 1 Dung Beetle will produce entirely the same results as a level 200 Dung Beetle. The only difference is the weight they can carry, which translates to the amount of Feces you can load on it.

While it is possible to tame anywhere, these beetles appear most frequently near water sources (past the first cluster of snakes in Central cave for example) it is advised to draw them closer to the cave entrance for safety. Positioning your Sabertooth at a choke point to prevent other players from interfering with your tame is advised on PvP. When not aggravated, the beetle will remain stationary making it easy to tame. Time lost by aggravating the beetle varies up to 3 to 5 minutes, which is added to the feeding interval time. After Taming it can be carried out of the cave, just keep in mind that you cannot hold a weapon while doing so.

Bug Repellant appears to have no effect.

Alternatively, you can lure it outside of the cave and pick it up with an Argentavis or Quetzal and relocate it to a taming pen near or at your base for easy taming. That way, you'll know where it is and it will be protected from (most) other creatures during the taming process.

You can safely drag one out of the water area in the North East Cave with the use of a Grappling Hook.

On The Center, Dung Beetles can occasionally be found at the bottom of the entry pit of the LavaCave, meaning a player can fly down with a suitable mount and be out with the beetle in seconds. It can then easily be dropped anywhere the player likes to tame.

Preferred Food

  1. Heces grandes de animal
  2. Heces medianas de animal
  3. Heces pequeñas de animal
  4. Heces humanas
  5. Carne podrida
  • They will eat Meat and Kibbles, but the taming rate is lower than Human Feces so it is not recommended.
  • Spoiled meat works but is very inefficient
  • Massive Animal Feces cannot be used for taming, it does not recognize it as a food.
  • When on wander, they will eat a person's body.
  • After taming, keeping feces in the beetle will not be enough to keep its food up. Provide the beetle with meat through a feeding trough or directly in its inventory to keep it fed.


This section describes how to fight against the Dung Beetle.


The Dung Beetle is not a dangerous animal, but one should always consider that it is not defenseless! Just be attentive to your surroundings as there are other creatures far more dangerous where the dung beetle resides.


To tame, slowly approach the dung beetle from behind and stand right next to it and start feeding it feces. Once fed, just go into your inventory and keep getting feces. It should not get aggressive. A Phiomia poop farm is recommended or have some large feces ready when you plan on going for one. If taming in a cave, be sure the area is clear of other more dangerous creatures that might disturb your tame before starting. After taming, you can pick it up and carry it. You can fly or ride other dinosaurs while carrying it, but cannot carry the Dung Beetle while a tamed creature is on your shoulder.

For killing, any weapon will do, as they are relatively weak and fragile. Ranged weapons are not practical, as even a stone pick can kill one quickly.


Podrás usar cualquier arma contra esta criatura, pero las armas a distancia no son prácticas. Sin embargo, si quieres ser rápido y evitar que un Onyc o un Pulmonoscorpio te ataquen mientras te encargas de esta criatura, usa una lanza de metal o una espada.


Beware other animals in the cave. A big fight can usually rile up all of the cave's inhabitants, including the beetle. While the player may be swinging away with a pike at nearby Onyc, a beetle can attack, possibly leading to death on either hand. Beware, as the beetle does a surprising amount of knock-back. Stay away from the lava or spike pits in caves that contain them, as to avoid an embarrassing and untimely death via a disgruntled Dung Beetle.


The dung beetles weakness lies in its frailty and is not a practical fighter because of its speed, attack damage, and health; this creature is not really meant for battling, it is prized more for its fertilizer and good looks. On PVP servers, make sure to keep them well protected, as they can be killed in a raid quickly.



The Dung Beetle can convert feces placed in its inventory into Fertilizer and Oil. 'Wandering' must be enabled for conversion to occur so be sure to place the beetle within a pen where it can wander freely without fear of it escaping. It will not collect feces; these have to be placed manually in the bug. Due to the low starting Weight, it is recommended to level up this stat in order to place more feces in its inventory, and due to low health, it is advisable to house these in an enclosed or otherwise protected area. 2 high wooden railings is sufficient to prevent escape.

It is also possible to keep your Beetle on wander in a Wooden Cage and feed it through the closed door. Just aim for the head and access the inventory.

Weight Converts From Fertilizer Oil
1 Human Feces 1 1
0.6 Small Animal Feces x 2 1 1
1.5 Medium Animal Feces 2 2
4.0 Large Animal Feces 3 3
35.0 Massive Animal Feces 16 7

Conversion of feces into fertilizer takes 15 minutes per conversion. However, it can convert one batch of each type of feces concurrently. For example, if you place 1 Human Feces, 2 Small Animal Feces, 1 Medium and 1 Large, you will have 7 fertilizer and 7 oil after 15 minutes (not 60 minutes). Production of same size feces is otherwise queued. For example, if you place 4 Small Feces, 1 Medium, and 1 Large, you will have 6 Fertilizer and 6 oil after 15 minutes, and an additional 1 Fertilizer and 1 oil after a further 15 minutes (30 minutes total). As of patch 243.0, with the introduction of the Titanosaur, if you have a Dung Beetle with a Weight stat greater than 35.0 it can convert a single Massive Animal Feces into 16 bags of Fertilizer and 7 Oil.

Snow Owl Pellet does not get converted into Fertilizer and oil, although they will not spoil when stored in a Dung Beetle either, making them great containers for fertilizer.”

Level weight exclusively, no other stat has any effect on the Fertilizer production.

In some cases, they might refuse to wander when on ceilings and certain other structures. This can be fixed by bringing them down to ground level. Dung Beetles do not seem to stop producing Fertilizer when kept in a Wooden Cage, even if they are encumbered with Feces.

  • This dossier was revealed on 08/05/2015 [1]
  • The dung beetle's genus Scarabidae actually refers to the group that dung beetles belong in, the scarab beetles.
  • At one point in the dung beetle dossier, the author refers them as worthy of being worshiped. Presumably this is a reference to how the Ancient Egyptians considered them to be sacred.
  • Real Dung Beetles lay their eggs in the dung they roll around, however Ark's Dung Beetles do not.
  • Dung Beetles do not produce Feces.
  • Real world Dung Beetles only eat dung/feces, however, Ark's Dung Beetles have adapted to eating spoiled rotten meat as well.
  • Dung Beetles are cloned by the Overseer to maintain their presence in the ecosystem, because they are either completely unable to breed or their population is unable to recover manually.
    • The game does not assign any genders to the Dung Beetles, making players unable to breed them.
  • Perhaps the closest real-world counterpart in terms of coloration and overall body shape/features is Phanaeus vindex, commonly known as the Rainbow Scarab. The only notable difference is the much more distinctive horns sported by the in-game beetles.
  • The in-game Dung Beetle is not shown as having any gender. However, they can be assumed to be male - in most species of Dung Beetle (including Phanaeus vindex), only the males grow horns.
  • In the dossier it is mentioned that they almost seem evolved to be companions for survivors. This might be inspired by the way beetles are kept as popular pets in Japan.
  • Since v241.0, the best way to move them is to pick them up in your hands and toss them, but you can't hold a tool or weapons while doing so.
  • Survivors can still ride tamed creatures while also carrying the Dung Beetle in their hands. Beware, when crossing water, the Dung Beetle will fall from the player’s hands.
  • Before v261.0 the Dung Beetle was an aggressive creature.
  • It is best to place tamed Dung Beetles directly on the ground or inside of a wooden cage. They have a tendency of phasing through foundations when offline and getting trapped beneath the floor.
  • Massive Animal Feces cannot be fed to Dung Beetles, probably due to Titanosaur(243.0) being added later than Dung Beetle(232.0) into ARK.
