Eating raw food will sate hunger, but is unhealthy for humans. This excellent cut spoils very quickly. Most wild carnivores love this meat.

Raw Mutton is a food item in ARK: Survival Evolved. It can be obtained by harvesting  Ovis.


Can be used to tame carnivores at slightly increased speed and Taming Effectiveness compared to  Raw Prime Meat. This is particularly useful for creatures without a preferred kibble, such as the Dimorphodon since the Taming Effectiveness is better to the next best thing. It restores usually 50 points of Food and provides 187.5 Affinity (progress). For comparison Kibble usually provides 400, Raw Prime Meat provides 150, and Raw Meat provides 50 Affinity. The following table lists the exceptions.

Creature Food Points Affinity
other Carnivores 50 187.5
 Compy 20 750
 Daeodon 50 37.5
 Microraptor 50 31.25
 Thylacoleo 50 25
 Tusoteuthis 50 18.75
 Thorny Dragon 50 162.5

It can be cooked in a  Campfire or  Industrial Grill into  Cooked Lamb Chop.


Raw Mutton can be harvested from dead  Ovis. They are fairly rare in the wild on "The Island" map, so don't expect them to show up whenever you need one.

When harvesting wild Ovis make sure your dino does not eat the mutton itself (put food into its inventory or make sure food is at max).
