How many creatures are in Ark Survival Evolved? I want to create a museum of sorts with one of each type of taxidermy. And I want to get started by crafting an SS Large taxidermy base for the dermises. A quick google search reveals that there are 176 creatures in Ark but fails to specify if that is literally all the creatures or just what can be tamed. I do not care if it is tameable or not. So long as I can collect its dermis is all that matters. I am asking for the sum total of all creatures in Ark. I.e. base game, expansions, corrupteds, mechanical, x variants, r variants, alphas, guardians, bosses, etc.
