The Carcharodontosaurus is an upcoming creature in ARK: Survival Evolved.

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.


Carcharodontosaurus medicupestis


Late Cretaceous






I feel lucky to have crossed paths with Carcharodontosaurus medicupestis and lived to tell the tale. Though I’m not sure if this predator grows bigger than a Giganotosaurus, I hope never to find out. Just one of these bruisers held its own against an army of us, and that encounter cost us dearly.

Carcharodontosaurus can sweep aside attackers with its tail, but it’s the other end you’ll really want to avoid. It has teeth like steak knives, set in jaws strong enough to shred most prey. Even a near-miss will carve you up, but good.

Like its namesake the great white shark, Carcharodontosaurus gets more dangerous once it tastes blood. Each kill seems to give these monsters a rush and drive it into a berserker frenzy.


Anyone that manages to tame a Carcharodontosaurus will gain a new way to rally their tribe for battle. There’s something about this monster’s roar that drives others to fight — a war cry for Hell’s own army.

The more tactical tribes will let their Carcharodontosaurus tear through the mid-sized creatures in their enemy’s ranks, thereby building up its bloodrage to take on the largest threats. Talk about shock and awe!


The Carcharodontosaurus will attack wild creatures and players on sight.

Base Stats and Growth


This section describes how to fight against the Carcharodontosaurus.


The Carcharodontosaurus is a ferocious fighter comparable to the likes of the Giganotosaurus itself and caution is necessary when taking on one of these beasts.




The Carcharodontosaurus is a powerful creature, with each creature it kills it grows stronger, it also has a powerful tail capable of knocking back opponents and can power up allies with its roar.



It is unknown how the Carcharodontosaurus will be tamed as it’s unreleased content.


War Mount

The Carcharodontosaurus sports a Battle Cry similar to the Yutyrannus that will boost the power of allied creatures making it a fearsome opponent in raids, not only that but it becomes stronger with each enemy it kills and its tail attack will knock enemies away.

World Boss Counter

While likely too big to fit into traditional Arenas it will be a powerful substitute to the Yutyrannus in maps like Fjordur and Extinction since it has a Battle Cry ability similar to the Yutyrannus, it's far stronger and in the case of Fjordur each of the the World Boss Minions it kills will make it stronger.
