Phiomia Ignauvus is yet another herd animal on the Island. They are small enough that almost any predator can bring them down, but large enough to provide plenty of meat.
Were it not for the protection of the herd, and their instinct to run from any predator, these would almost certainly be hunted to extinction.
Phiomia's tusks and trunk make it especially suited to scavenging plantlife from the ground. It uses its tusks to dig up loose plantlife, then uses its stubby trunk to scoop the foliage into its mouth. Adult Phiomia often dig up food for their young, and watching a baby Phiomia attempt to use its trunk can be quite amusing.
While it is completely possible to ride a Phiomia around, they are a weaker choice. They work very well, however, as pack-mules. And I've seen some communities keeping a herd of these around as livestock. The Phiomia require protection, though, as they are terrible fighters.
— The Dossier
The Phiomia is a medium sized herbivorous mammal found on the Ark. Provides a lot of meat and hide, and will run from combat.

A pig-like elephant relative. It mainly comes in black, greys, and muddy brown colors, and it has tusks with a trunk that looks stunted. It can be best described as a very heavily bulky tapir with tusks or a pig with an unconventional appearance.
Color Scheme and Regions
This section displays the Phiomia's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Mammoth. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Mammoth will randomly spawn with to provide an overall range of its natural color scheme. Hover your cursor over a color to display its name and ID.
- Color scheme information is taken directly from the ARK DevKit and should be deemed correct.
Server admins can use this region information in the Console Command "cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID>". For example, "cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6" would color the Mammoth's "fur mane" magenta.

Phiomia will run away from the player when attacked. Without any increases in the player's movement speed stat, he/she will be easily outpaced until the creature thinks it's safe and stops running. When chasing a Phiomia, it is best to be near rocks or below cliffs, as Phiomia will run into these barriers and be cornered.
The Phiomia spawn anywhere above ground and on land. They can quite commonly be seen walking throughout Ark at a steady pace.
Because of their high meat output when butchered they are a good source of food to keep alive on hand. Due to their slow speed, they are not suitable as mounts. They can be good for early storage or Guards if weight or attack/health are upgraded as they level.
As with all dinosaurs, the amount of food needed to tame them and the number of Narcoberries or Narcotics to keep them unconscious depends on the level of the Phiomia, but is around 50 berries and 20 Narcoberries for lower levels.

Trivia not relevant for the game
- Phiomia are an early member of the group Proboscidae, which contains modern elephants. The exact purpose of their tusk arrangement is uncertain, but they possibly used them to scoop up food or scrape bark from trees.
