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

Ark Sabertooth

The Smilodon Brutalis is an aggressive carnivore that existed during the Pleistocene and Holocene time period.

These creatures resemble prehistoric tigers who seem to have similarities with their modern relatives, retaining the razor-sharp front teeth which it uses to sink deep into its prey.

Sabretooth appear to have a slightly different color scheme depending on where they usually live, showing that they adapt quickly and can survive almost anywhere.

These dangerous felines will not hesitate when prey is nearby and this includes humans which it will chase down as long as it senses them.

When tamed, these ferocious beasts give their owners the advantage of a versatile beast and its adept hunting skills to take down enemies.


Dossier Summary

The Sabertooth is capable of surviving in almost any area, especially in the cold due to the coat of fur that keeps it warm and its predatory capabilities which allow it to always feed on its prey.

While these creatures are usually seen hunting alone, they do indeed team up from time to time to take out prey and will respond aggressively when they notice on of their kind being attacked.

These creatures are known to be able to take out creatures larger than it and even being able to take out Rexes and Mammoths.

The speed of Sabertooth is exceptional and its body is built up to be more tenacious to other creatures with the same size while its adept hunting ability has allowed it to develop skills in flaying bodies for meat and other resources.
