Not even Chris Pratt is able to tame dinosaurs as well as you can in Ark: Survival Evolved. Personally, being able to have dinosaur pets is something I can only dream of. Raptors, Stegosaurus, and a T. rex at my disposal and benefit? I could very well be the king of the world. But because things cannot be perfect in life and probably because I would get eaten in an instant, humans and dinosaurs are separated from each other for millions of years. Maybe that’s for the best. However, that is not the case in Ark: Survival Evolved. There, my dreams of dinosaur taming can be fulfilled. Oh, what a wonderful world. Here is how to tame a wild Pegomastax in Ark: Survival Evolved.

How to Tame a Wild Pegomastax

The way you are going to tame a Wild Pegomastax is similar to when your friend stays in your house for weeks after promising it will take only a couple of days for him to figure things out. You’re going to let it steal your food and eat it. And in order to tame the Wild Pegomastax without having your whole inventory wiped out in a blink of an eye, you are going to have to collect some Mejoberries. The Pegomastax loves them berries. Equip them in your inventory and wait for the Pegomastax to steal them before restocking it again. Follow the Pegomastax while he is eating the berries and let it steal more each time it has its hands empty. Let him rob you as much as you can, and you will have a successful Pegmastax tame.

Once you have domesticated your Pegomastax, be sure to upgrade its speed and health in order for it to steal food and resources from other players for your own benefit. And of course, keep feeding your Pegomastax with the best Mejoberries and vegetables you can find.
