. Taming a Monkey in Ark: Survival Evolved is relatively straightforward providing you’ve gotten your hands on some monkey kibble. You’ll also need to make sure you have enough space for the monkey once you’ve tamed it.
The first step is to place the monkey kibble in your hotbar. Then approach the monkey you want to tame.
When you’re close enough you’ll get a prompt to use the kibble. Use the kibble and the monkey that you’ve approached will make an agitated noise.
You’ll then need to destroy the black nodes around its neck; this is done by attacking them with any weapon. This process will tame the monkey and once it has settled down you will be able to name the monkey or assign it to one of your tribesman. Finally it will be yours to use and will follow you wherever you go.
