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

Ark Carbonemys

The Carbonemys Obibimusis a herbivore from the Danian time period that has a rather defensive temperament.

Resembling what appears to be a turtle, the Carbonemys is slow on land while a bit faster in the water and remains somewhat safe most of the time due to its hard shell.

These creatures are usually seen wandering areas near water, mainly beaches where they tend to traverse both land and water.

A Carbonemys will pretty much ignore survivors and just continue along their way but in the event that they are attacked, they will attempt to fight back.

Carbonemys make good transport across the water due to their moderate amount of health but other tribes utilize them for their hard shells in raids since they can soak a good amount of damage.


Dossier Summary

While Carbonemys are not aggressive creatures, they do tend to attempt to fend for themselves and those of the same species when threatened.

These creatures are targeted due to their slow speed and remain safe mainly due to their protective shell although this doesn’t always ensure their survival against stronger creatures.

The Carbonemys is faster in the water than it is on land and with its strong shell it can be used tame underwater creatures that later on can protect or even replace it.

Turret Soaker

Aquatic Mount

Due to the survivability provided by its health and hard shell, these creatures last quite long against enemies in the water and can tank them when taming.

How to Tame Carbonemys?
