Ark: Survival Evolved is a great survival adventure that allows players to build powerful bases, survive on a dry island, and tame animals from dinosaurs to giant turtles. Taming is an important part of the skill set, and requires proper food.
Taming Animals can be a real challenge if players don''t have the appropriate food. It''s often a lengthy process that requires a lot of time, time, and patience, and even after all this there''s still a chance that players will fail. Kibble is an extremely useful resource in Ark: Survival Evolved and will undoubtedly make their lives much easier.
What Kibble Is Used For
Kibble is a natural food item that can be used to tame creatures at its simplest rate. It speeds up the process when the player is initially taming the dinosaur of their choice, making it much more efficient and not as resource-intensive.
While it may expedite the taming process as a whole, it also has other features that may help save the player''s life or improve their performance. In addition to feeding Kibble to a creature to grind it will give them better stats once the process has been completed. This may make them stronger, healthier, or quicker depending on the animal. Luckily, the Kibble is one of the most easy recipes in Ark: Survival Evolved, which requires only a few ingredients and even fewer machines to make
Due to the fact that there are six different versions of Kibble available on Ark''s console version, selecting the one player should make all depends on the creature they''re intending to sue. Each creature will prefer a different type of Kibble, and feeding them the wrong one will prove the opposite of effective.

How To Get Eggs
As players progress through the game, sometimes it''s difficult to create Extraordinary Kibble, but as they progress through the game and different resources begin to gain hold of, they should be able to grab the required ingredients. This is especially true for any type of Kibble, and the name hints at where the egg will come from.
Firstly, find a female dinosaur of the sizes players want the egg to be, Dodo''s can''t lay large Eggs, and a Triceratops can''t lay small Eggs. It''s worthwhile to find or taming a female creature and finding them a partner. This will be beneficial to the relationship, as long as they have two different gendered pets nearby. This should be evident as to if this has been done by the sign of a pink heart by their name
Once this is achieved, the player will only have to wait. If the creature is boosted then the player should not wait around the pen for the female to lay an egg. However, it''s worthwhile checking in every so often since it does not decompose 30 minutes after dropping.
The average female boosted creature has a great chance to drop an egg every 17 minutes. Players have eight-day before it spoils.
How To Make Kibble
Kibble itself may be accomplished using a Cooking Pot, an Industrial Cooker, or the TEK Kibble Processor. For ease, it''s worthwhile to use a cooking pot for the beginning of the game, given that it does not perform too much in terms of efficiency when it comes to making the Kibble Processor or the Industrial Cooker.
Take the ingredients for the Kibble and place them all into the Cooking Pot. Players on console will need to make sure they have at least 25 percent water in there before cooking. Then, add some thatch to the bottom of the fire to prevent the fire. This type of method will often result in something the player doesn''t desire, so be careful when it comes to making this recipe.
The player will have to wait 30 seconds to get the campfire on, and it will produce some Kibble. In brief steps, he must:
