How to tame a Therizinosaurus in Ark: Survival Evolved
The survival crafter Ark: Survival Evolved has lots of dinos that pack a lot of power into unassuming packages. The Therizinosaurus is one such creature – as one of the mightiest of herbivores, the Theri is known for beating more than a few cocky survivors by a selfish stake or three.
The good news is that the Theri can be tamed if players manage to take it down. Unlike certain tames, like the Arthropleura, taming a Therizinosaurus is an easy task once players have some gear. Just be… careful with those claws.

The Therizinosaurus Basics
The Therizinosaurus is also known as Theri and Big Bird. This herbivore is a territorial creature that will attack players who venture too close to its nests, typically finishing off those players with a few quick swipes of its claws. The Theri is one of the strongest herbivores on The Island, with stats close enough to those of the Rex and Carnotaurini to hold it toe to toe.
They tend to build their nests on coasts and in the jungle, and what they consider “their territory” extends about twenty yards from their patrol points. They seem to lose a bit of survivability once tamed, but can still prop up any dino pack’s DPS with their massive claws.
The Taming of the Theri
Theris are an active tamer, as opposed to passively taming an Equus, although its ability to deal damage (and high inertia range) makes it a more difficult tame than many tribes realize on first contact. Bring along a few dozen narcotics and hundreds of berries for the taming process.
The hardest part of this taming is taking out the Therizinosaurus – it deals massive damage that can shred through most armor and attacks consistently. Avoid Bringing Mounts: Bring instead grappling hook. These birds tend to frequently visit areas where trees are predominant, so if survivors cling to the top of a tree, they can rain down Tranqs.
Once the bird tries to flee when its inertia is above 90%, drop off your perch and chase it until it falls. Therizinosaurus is considered prey to carnivores, so placing some wooden spikes around your tame could go a long way in protecting the creature from the jaws of raptors, which are another common jungle denizen. Alternatively, try dropping it in an easily defendable area like a valley.
With your new Theri
The Big Bird is a helpful tamer whether your tribe is in its infancy or nearing the late game. Even for completing The Island’s final bosses, the Therizinosaurus has a place in the pack as a high DPS herbivore that won’t eat into your stash of meat that’s better equipped for Raptors and Rex.
Also, once saddled, the Therizinosaurus can harvest all resources except metals, rocks, and pearls. Players should decide early on what they want their newly minted Therizinosaurus to specialize in: level-weight for resource harvesting and damage and health for a DPS role. If you’re using Theri as part of a larger Dino DPS pack, opt for health to take advantage of his natural tankiness.
