Ark Megalania Guide (How to Tame, Drops, Food, Location…)

Ark Megalania

Megalania Muruspede are carnivores with an aggressive temperament that appeared during the Late Holocene Epoch.

This creature has a resemblance to the modern day komodo dragon and is capable of climbing on surfaces with its sharp claws.

Usually seen roaming near certain beaches or in caves, the Megalania can be sometimes hard to notice due to its color disguising it with the terrain or even surfaces in caves that it clings to.

Humans are considered easy prey for the Megalania so naturally these creatures will attack by biting them which can prove to be fatal due to the mega rabies that can be inflicted upon them.

Tribes have captured and tamed Megalania for their natural ability to climb up walls, helping raiders scale built fortifications with little effort and infecting enemies that try to fight back with mega rabies.
