Medium Animal Feces are the excrements of medium-sized creatures (like Parasaurs and Trikes) in ARK: Survival Evolved. From time to time, they automatically drop from these creatures. If eaten by a survivor, their health will drop.


Medium Animal Feces can be used as fertilizer and add 7,500 points to fertilization when they are put in the inventory of a Crop Plot.

They can be combined with Thatch in a Compost Bin to produce  Fertilizer.

* When a plant has its maximum of fruits, it needs less fertilizer. As the fruits spoil after some time, leaving the plant in a non-full state for some time, these numbers are rather theoretical maximums.

List of Creatures


  • The easiest way to obtain large amounts of medium animal feces is taming a Phiomia and force feeding it Stimberries. When doing so, the Phiomia will poop very often.
