Ark Beelzebufo (How to Tame, Drops, Food, Location…)


The Beelzebufo Palucocus is a large carnivorous amphibian from the late cretaceous period and has a languorous temperament appearing lazy most of the time or inactive.

Beelzebufo are a species of large frog but instead of being as harmless as they appear, these creatures have a powerful toxin that can cause paralysis at a rapid rate.

They will usually wander around harmlessly but once they are attacked, they will respond aggressively by licking its enemy with its tongue, inflicting damage as well as increasing torpor until they knock out their attacker and eventually end up killing them.

Beelzebufo will ignore players unless they are attacked or other Beelzebufo around them have been threatened, causing them to respond and attempt to turn the attack around.

Survivors can utilize Beelzebufo for their ability to make high jumps as well as their ability to devour insects and create cementing paste.



Dossier Summary

Amongst all of the frogs that have ever been seen, Beelzebufo remain the largest and are even big enough for survivors to ride on.

Similar to many frogs, the Beelzebufo preys mostly on insects, making it adept at killing them and as an addition to this, they can chew up the chitin and mix it in their mouth with their saliva to create cementing paste

Tribes do not usually use Beelzebufo since they appear to be useless but others make use of them to do high vertical jumps to get over obstacles and their ability to create cementing paste form killing insects.

Beelzebufo are a good choice for tribes that are in dire need of cementing paste but lack the means to obtain them, especially when there are plenty of spawn locations where insects may appear.

The Beelzebufo’s attacks are incredible strong when dealing torpor and can be used to subdue almost any enemy, including enemy tames which can eventually cause several problems for those that go up against multiple tamed Beelzebufo.

Some tribes leave Beelzebufo on wander in order to take out enemies that wander nearby or to gather cementing paste but these will need to be set on aggressive and may need to be checked from time to time.
