The Carbonemys (car-BON-eh-miss) often simply referred to as the Turtle, is a small, herbivorous reptile known for its defensive shell making it a good soaker against turrets, as well as its relatively fast speed when in water. It was first added in  ARK: Survival Evolved on its early release.

Basic Info

Temperament

Defensive

Wild

Carbonemys obibimus is one of the least aggressive creatures on the Island. Were it not for the plethora of predators on the Island, I'm quite certain that it would spend its days basking in the sun, eating, or sleeping. Carbonemys leads a simple, solitary life. Nevertheless, it seems to be one of the most peaceful animals I have yet encountered. With its slow walking speed, the only things that keep it safe are its surprisingly fast swim speed, and its incredibly thick shell, which can absorb tremendous damage.

Domesticated

Carbonemys' swift swim rate, fairly high strength, superior shell defenses, and lack of real threat makes it an ideal armored mount for many survivors who shy away from violence. It can carry its rider to the ocean's resources at fairly high speed, and is not particularly dangerous to tame.

Behavior

Carbonemys is a neutral creature, and will fight back only if attacked or you take one of their eggs. They will also defend their own kind. Upon being attacked, Carbonemys can deliver quite a punishing attack, but nothing too fatal. Their extremely low movement speed allows them to be easily kited and killed for meat early on, however they have a very large amount of health, and require quite an amount of time to kill.

Appearance

Carbonemys are large turtles that stand taller than a Human. They are protected by a thick, heavily spiked shell, and their heads and tails have similar protusions, also being covered in firm plates. The skin of their feet and tail is rougher and thicker, leaving only the lower neck area as relatively tender. Thick spikes jut above their eyes, which are pink, and have horizontal pupils.

Color Scheme and Regions

This section displays the Carbonemys's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Carbonemys. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Carbonemys 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 Carbonemys's regions by entering cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID> in the cheat console. For instance, cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6 would color the Carbonemys's "body" magenta.

Wild Stats Level-up

Type in values of a wild creature to see on which stats it's emphasized. Green values on a high-level creature are very good for breeding. If you have already tamed your creature you can try to recover the breeding stats with an external tool.[1]

Carbonemys

The stat-calculator does not work in the mobile-view, see here for alternatives: Apps

Note that after the creature is tamed it gets bonuses on some stats depending on the taming effectiveness. This makes it hard to retrieve the levels on a tamed creature, so this tool is only for wild ones, but gives a first impression, how well the stats are distributed.


Abilities

  • The Carbonemys bites the target for 13 damage.
  • Can be used every 0.75s by both a rider and the AI.

Damage Reduction

The Carbonemys shell and tail reduces the incoming damage that it receives from projectiles by x0.2 and by x0.5 its normal damage respectively. On  ARK: Survival Ascended the body damage multipliers also apply for melee attacks.

Taming

For general info about domesticating a wild creature see Taming.

KO Strategy

It is not recommended that you get into a punching match with this spiky and very well-armored beast, you'll probably lose that fight. Instead you should look to a few other methods of knocking one out. The best method would be using a  Pulmonoscorpius and/or  Tranquilizer Arrows, but if neither are available to you, then a simple  Slingshot will do the trick. Aim at the head for best results and avoid hitting the shell as it has very little effect. Note: Weapons register hits from very slightly farther away than the creature will 'react' to. (i.e. it doesn't flinch or make a noise but the hit still deals damage). If you don't have much health you can jump on its shell and whack it with a  Wooden Club.

Combat

This section describes how to fight against the Carbonemys.

General

The shell of the Carbonemys reduces incoming damage by 80%, the legs and tail by 50%, and the head only takes base damage (no headshot multiplier). The Carbonemys should not be attacked anywhere but the head due to the low damage on all other parts of its body.

Strategy

The Carbonemys is fairly easily killed with a  Pike,  Spear, or Ranged Weapons. Even though the Carbonemys can dish out sizable amounts of damage to anyone with lower than  Chitin Armor, this is easily avoided by backing away slowly and either stabbing or shooting the head of the animal. It is not recommended to use any close range weapons, such as a  Metal Sword, due to the lack of distance between the player and the Carbonemys. If stuck in a tree or rock, one could easily lance hits into its face while maintaining a safe distance. Even if free from a stuck position, it is easy to kite/train(a gaming term that means to lead an enemy around in your control) to your advantage due to the horrendously slow movement speed.

Weaponry

Any weapon with a longer range than a  Metal Sword should do the trick, as the distance between the player and the Carbonemys will be large enough to avoid much damage. For lower levels, a  Bow,  Slingshot, or  Spear should do the trick, and the same for those weapons' higher-level counterparts.

Dangers

New players should be aware that the Carbonemys is not simply a defenseless, lumbering turtle, but has a large pool of health and feasible damage output. The creature can drag a fight out for a long time, exhausting any player that did not prepare themselves. Players with low melee damage and health may have a more difficult time taking on the Carbonemys. The Turtle's powerful jaws can deliver a devastating blow to low level players.

Weakness

The Carbonemys is slow enough that you can easily outpace it even while walking backward, making spears a very effective weapon against it, you just have to prepare a lot or you might just run away from it temporarily.

Utility

Roles

  • Tank: Excellent tank due to its high HP and natural defenses. (Level up  Health)
  • Transport: While slow, the carbonemys has a very good base carrying capacity. Notably faster in water, making it good for local/water transport. (Level up  Weight)
  • Egg Farming: Carbonemys eggs are medium sized, making them big enough to make  Regular Kibble with, making it one of the easiest animals to get a ton of medium eggs for regular kibble, because of how abundant and easy to tame they are.
  • PvP Turret Soaker: Walking backwards towards a turret will cause it to take greatly reduced damage from turrets, combined with its high HP this makes it a very good tame to exhaust auto turret ammo. It would be best to set it on passive and leash it to a friendly tame out of sight so if you get sniped off of your mount the tortoise will run to safety.
  • Tame Assistant: The Carbonemys, due to its high health and easy tame in case it dies, makes it an ideal distraction mount when trying to tame  Tusoteuthis. Of course, due to the fact that by the time you'll be attempting to tame a  Tusoteuthis you'll have more tanky mounts, such as the mosasaur, but the Carbonemys is much more expendable if you underestimate the  Tusoteuthis's power and get your distraction killed.

Notes/Trivia

For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Carbonemys, see the relevant Wikipedia article.

  • Carbonemys is Greek for "Coal Turtle".
  • On Valguero there are some dead aberrant Carbonemys near the shores, they can be harvested for  Spoiled Meat,  Hide and  Keratin.
  • If you want to kill Carbonemys in the early levels (because they grant great amounts of Exp), prepare some  Spears, and hit it while you're moving backward, as wild Carbonemys's sprint is even slower than you moving backward, so stabbing it repeatedly till it die, also work on medium and high leveled Carbonemys as well.
  • The real Carbonemys and  Titanoboa were contemporaries. They both lived in the jungle rivers of what is now Colombia 60 million years ago in swamp environments. A more realistic depiction of Carbonemys would be to see them in the Writhing Swamps in large numbers. They're not the strongest herbivores but it would still result in great conflict with the swamp's predators.
  • Carbonemys is one of the original creatures that were in the game when it released in Alpha in 2015
  • When mounted the player model grows to a VERY large size to "fit" the turtle's saddle, depending on the original player model, a player could double its size while mounted.
  • The real Carbonemys was actually a giant species of side-neck turtle reaching the size of a small car. They were also believed to be carnivorous by scientists, using their beaks to crush bones, shells, and armour from small creatures.
  • In earlier versions of the game, it was possible to stand on a wild Carbonemys that was crossing a river to avoid getting bitten to death by  Megapiranhas, as a bug caused Carbonemys to go unnoticed by them.
  • Carbonemys are one of the few wild dinos that can be "ridden" by jumping on their backs.
    • However, players will slide down if it is a wild Carbonemys and goes in combat. Occasionally, players can get stuck inside its body.
  • Real turtles breathe air and hold their breath underwater, however Ark's Carbonemys doesn't need oxygen, thus it can stay underwater forever.
  • Real turtles are social animals that live in a group called a bale, Ark's Carbonemys is mostly seen on it's own but can be seen with other Carbonemys.
  • Real turtles have webbed feet, Carbonemys have clawed feet like a land dwelling tortoise.
  • Despite being a turtle it's incapable of retracting its limbs into its shell like the  Doedicurus can.
  • Real life Carbonemys might have just a normal smooth giant shell just like other turtles and not kinda spiky like on Ark.
