Ferox is a carnivore mammal in Ark Survival Evolved. Ferox is not an aggressive creature and will run away at the sight of a player or any tamed animal, however, there is a chance that it will evolve into its mutated aggressive form. In its giant mutated form, it becomes extremely hostile and will attack any creature it can get its hands on, even non-mutated Ferox. This guide will explain how to find and How Tame Ferox in ARK Genesis.

Taming a Ferox
Ferox can be tamed in two ways. One is non-violently, or through the knockout method. It cannot be tamed in a mutated form.
To tame Ferox, approach it with “Element” in any inventory slot and use it on Ferox. Be ready, as this will mutate him and it will chase the survivor who used the element on the Ferox.
Keep running until it reverts and repeats. Keep doing so until Ferox is tamed at the last revert.
One of the known tactics is casing it in a giant trap. Lure the giant form into the trap with a speedy dinosaur or any other speedy pets. Otherwise, if you are in a cave, feed it element and quickly grapple to the roof. Once Ferox reverts, drop and feed it again. Repeat to tame it. The same can be done with trees.
