In Ark: Survival Evolved, theBird terror is a fairly common creature that is laughable at first glance because it looks like a huge flightless bird. It is easily recognized and ignores ridicule thanks to its great aggressiveness and its features common to several theropods, especially Tyrannosaurus, even if it is much less formidable than the latter. He’s clearly carnivorous and isn’t a very formidable opponent, but isn’t necessarily very useful to the Survivor. We explain to you in this guide the most important elements you need to know about this creature.
Where can you find Terror Birds in Ark?
The Bird-Terror is a carnivorous creature that rather appreciates tropical areas: you will generally find it in swampy areas, regardless of the island you are on. It is an exclusively terrestrial animal, it is not a very good swimmer and can only glide but, strictly speaking, certainly not fly. It is generally smaller than most theropods, and its appearance as a large bird makes it especially recognizable from quite a distance.
The Earthbird is very hostile and will attack any creature it sees near or far and will have no qualms about pursuing you relentlessly until it kills you. Also, watch out, since he’s really fast once he starts running, it’s better to be able to kill him than to run away from him!
Peculiarities of the Terrorbird in Ark
- Explorer: The Terrorbird is a very fast creature on Ark, although it is slower than a Gallimimus, it can roam large areas in no time and all without taking too many risks as few large predators can match it in terms of speed
- Battle Mountain: Very effective in combat thanks to its high speed and ability to deal more than respectable damage, the Terrorbird is one of the most reliable combat mounts available at the start of the game, being both solid and fast during your first few hours to play. You’ll replace it soon, but it’s a good start!
Taming: how to tame the Terror Bird?
Taming the Bird-Terror really isn’t the most complex, the only difficulty is keeping Torpor’s level low enough throughout the process. The idea is simply to put him to sleep using Tranquilizer Arrows and then administer an acceptable amount Narcotics or from Narcoberries until he is tamed.
Plan a good stock of Narcotics or from Narcoberries and increased surveillance: the Torpor of the Bird-Terror goes out quickly and it shouldn’t wake up because you weren’t paying attention.
As for food, due to its carnivorous nature, this creature is especially fond of regular kibble and mutton.
Regular kibble recipe:
– 1x Dried meat

→ 9 regular kibble required for a level 150 Terror Bird
→ Time to tame it: ~14min24s
Kill an Ovis to get meat.
→ 20 mutton required for a level 150 Terrorbird
→ Time to tame it: ~30min01s
How do you breed the Terror Bird?
The reproduction of the Bird-Terror requires the presence of a male and a female of this species in the same room.
Randomly and at a rate of about every 18 to 48 hours, the female Terror Bird lays a Terrorbird Egg. This can be eaten by the player or used for crafting Ordinary kibblebut to hatch a baby Baryonyx, you must hatch the egg by placing it on the ground and providing it with acceptable conditions for the baby’s development.
In the case of the Terror Bird, its egg hatched at around 1:59 a.m. after being incubated under the right conditions. It needs a temperature between 20 and 28°C to hatch, otherwise it will lose health. It is also interesting to know that the incubation time can be reduced by up to 20% if the egg is placed in an incubator set at the ideal temperature.
