8.0.4 UPDATE

Ankylosaurus ('ang-ki-lo-sawr-us, or æŋ·ki·lə·so·ɹəs in IPA notation', meaning "Fused Lizard") are diurnal (meaning active during the day) herbivorous prehistoric creatures that were added in Build 5.1. As a medium-sized armored dinosaur, it grows to 2 blocks tall and 7.3 blocks long including their tail club. Male Ankylosaurus are darker than females, and have a red underbelly. Newborns are 0.2 blocks tall and are fully grown in 12 Minecraft days. They can be given essence of chicken to grow faster, at the cost of hunger.

Ankylosaurus, like almost all other mobs, has a mood that can drop or be raised through various means. Having a low mood means it may attack or avoid you, having a high mood will make it passive. Right-click it with a Dinopedia to see what its mood is at.

A fossil version of the Ankylosaurus can be created by right-clicking a bio-fossil on the ground, which will create a random skeleton of a prehistoric creature with a small chance of it being a Ankylosaurus. Like most other mobs in the mod, they do not spawn naturally in the world and must be created by the player through the culture vat. As they are dinosaurs, they hatch from large eggs that need to be warmed by torches.

Ankylosaurus are relatively slow-moving territorial dinosaurs that will defend themselves when attacked. When provoked, they will become surprisingly fast, and will hit the attacker with their tail club, launching them into the air and causing additional fall damage. They can break blocks weaker than iron, although at a smaller rate than other block-breaking mobs. When they are hungry, they will seek out plants to eat. The best plant to feed the self-sufficient Ankylosaurus is the ancient ferns which will spread under trees on their own. The only predators of an adult Ankylosaurus are allosaurus, liopleurodon, mosasaurus, tyrannosaurus, sarcosuchus and spinosaurus. Baby Ankylosaurus, however, will be attacked by many more carnivores.

Ankylosaurus will interact with scratching posts, tethered logs, and will chase toy balls bringing up their mood significantly. They will however toss their ball up into the air with their club, and may accidentally throw it into an unreachable place. They are diurnal, meaning they are active during the day and will sleep at night.

Adult Ankylosaurus can breed and lay eggs every five minutes as adults if there is a male and female present. The breeding probability is handled by how many individuals are nearby.


Ankylosaurus is tameable and rideable. To tame an Ankylosaurus, you must to stay within 6 blocks from the egg while it hatches. If the player is not in this range then they will have to hand-feed it until it is tamed. It can also be forcibly tamed with a whip, lowering its mood. It's recommended to only do this when it is at a high mood, as it will attack you when its mood is too low. They are ordered with sticks.


Adult Ankylosaurus are rideable after being tamed. It is controlled with a whip. The controls are the same as when riding a horse. When riding, the Ankylosaurus is faster than it seems to be otherwise.


Ankylosaurus are herbivores and will eat flowers, leaves, grass, and ancient ferns. They can also be hand-fed seeds, wheat, bread, apples, sugar, sugarcane, cookies, melon, and cake, and will eat from feeders that have plants in them.
