Kibble is the ultimate dino delicacy. This recipe is what every prehistoric pal craves. Still, it’s not that easy to understand, prepare, and use in Ark: Survival Ascended.

If you use the right kibble, it’ll take less time and effort to tame a dino. This might not be a must for easier-to-tame dinosaurs like the Trike. Still, if you’re going for a bigger creature like the Bronto, you’ll want some Kibble under your sleeve. I was on the fence about wasting resources and effort to craft kibble. For the longest time, I blindly charged into the taming process without materials. However, with time, I learned that it makes a world of difference to pack kibble for your taming trips. In this guide, we’ll cover which dinos prefer each type of kibble and all kibble recipes in ARK: Survival Ascended.
