Rhinos are one of the defensive Mammals in ATLAS.

Basic Information[]


Rhinos are docile unless provoked.


Large, plate-covered back, with a giant horn on the end of its snout.


Gate Size[]




Rhinos can make an ultra-high-damage charged attack that multiplies their melee damage by the speed of their current sprinting charge. Also, they gather massive amounts of Stone.png Stone, Flint.png Flint and Bamboo.png Bamboo. They can get an OK amount of material from pure nodes of the various types of Tin.png Metal, but using a good Metal Pick.png Metal Pick and Skill Advanced Higher Hand-Harvesting Yield.png Advanced Higher Hand-Harvesting Yield skill will give you much more. And a Rhino will harvest no Tin.png Metal from regular boulders at all, while a pick will give you small amounts from them. They can also harvest the different gems types and reduce their inventory weight, but like metal you are better off harvesting with a metal pick and upgraded hand harvesting.


Originally the rhino could only be Tamed with Turnips. As of patch 10.0 they can be tamed with Turnip, Vegetables, or Fruits. With turnip having the most effectiveness.

Taming TIP: feed it from belly side stay close to back legs and belly and aim to head and slowly find a sweet spot for feeding. 1 wall high pen is enough.


know so far:

You can breed Rhinos in the following biomes: High Desert and Low Desert, Western Tropics. Acceptable temperatures for mating and offspring are between 25-43°C (77-110°F). Your newborn Rhino will be ready for you to claim it after about 6 hours and 15 minutes.

Feeding Baby[]

It will eat from its inventory one Chili.png Chili (or similar food) about every 48 seconds. A newborn can only carry enough weight to hold a few units of food so you won't be able leave for very long between feedings. Once it can hold more, each full stack should give you 1 hour and 20 minutes away from baby. Tested with berries, non-Vit A source, and it works fine too if chili's aren't available.

About about 6 hours and 40 minutes after the baby is born, the maturation meter will reach 10% and the baby will become a juvenile. After that point, the young Rhino will better handle temperature swings and it will be able to eat from a Feeding Trough.png Feeding Trough, allowing you to leave it alone for longer periods of time.

Keeping Baby Comfortable[]

When possible, arrange to raise the baby someplace that won't stay too far above its comfortable temperature range for too much of the day. It is easier to heat an area than it is to cool it, so keep that in mind when setting up your nursery for each species you breed.

To keep the baby warm enough, have plenty of Wood Wall Hook.png Wood Wall Hooks with Torch.png Torches in them mounted around the floors and walls in the fully enclosed area where you will be raising the baby. Maybe also install a Lever.png Lever set to the same PIN as the hooks so you can trigger them all at once if you like. This will help you keep your young pets alive during any cold spells.

If you need to cool the area, you will need to use Ice Box.png Ice Boxes. To power them, you will need to have visited a frigid region ahead of time and stockpiled enough Ice.png Ice to keep the boxes active until the heatwave passes.


Beyond the initial imprint when you claimed your newborn, you can also gain a very useful imprint bonus by cuddling with your new friend. The cuddle timer ("Wants Care In" timer) is eight hours. Cuddling or taking a walk with it as soon as possible each time the timer elapses will increase your new Rhino's stats. It will also provide a nice rider buff once you can saddle it as an adult.

A 100% imprint will give an additional 30% damage and defence bonus while the pathfinder that imprinted on the animal is riding it. If you can't arrange to increase the imprint every eight hours, don't despair. You'll still get a bonus based on whatever imprint bonus you did get while raising your new little friend. For example, a 50% imprint bonus will still get you 15% more damage and defense; it's not an all-or-nothing thing.

Notes On Timing[]

Successfully raising a high-imprint offspring—or even just keeping your new buddy alive at all—can take quite a bit of time and good scheduling. So here is a rundown of the relevant times to be mindful of:

  • Mating time: 2 minutes
  • Gestation Time: 5 hours 45 Minutes
  • Baby feeding every 1 min 50 seconds
  • cuddle interval: 8 hours
  • 0.1% maturation = 143 seconds

on OFFICIAL Servers: to 10% approx 4 hrs


Rhinos are relatively fast creatures, that take some time to turn. They can use a charge attack that causes extra damage.
