La Sanguijuela (Leech en la versión oficial del juego) es una de las criaturas disponibles en ARK: Survival Evolved.

Información básica[editar | editar código]

Dosier[editar | editar código]

Esta sección describe lo que la superviviente Helena, autora de los dosiers de dinosaurios, ha escrito en sus notas de exploración por el mundo. Puede que haya algunas discrepancias entre este texto y las condiciones actuales de las criaturas.


It is difficult to be angry with Haementeria laetus, despite its rather terrible nature. The creature has practically no intelligence, and just attaches to any nearby living flesh in an attempt to drain that creature's blood.

Removing Haementeria requires precision bladework, or access to an open flame. Both of these can be nearly as dangerous to the host as to the leech itself.

Once Haementeria attaches to a host, it drains blood at a rapid pace, and the host experiences hunger, loss of health, and lowered stamina. Some Haementeria are also carriers for a dangerous disease I've dubbed "Swamp Fever," which persists beyond the leech's own lifespan. Few creatures on the Island are transmitters for this disease, and it can ultimately be cured with a rare medicine.


While Haementeria is not intelligent enough to be tamed, it is always useful to keep a few around for antidotes and fishing lures. When processed properly, Haementeria venom can be made into a powerful antivenom!

Comportamiento[editar | editar código]

Las Sanguijuelas se esconden en el agua, esperando a criaturas domesticadas o a jugadores que se acerquen a ellas, momento en el que saltan sobre ellos y los atacan.

Diseased Leech (Variant)[editar | editar código]

The Diseased Leech.png Diseased Leech is a variant of the Leech.png Leech distinguished by its red and orange color scheme as well as its name in the HUD. It transmits Swamp Fever, which can be cured with Lesser Antidote.png Lesser Antidote. The carcass of the Diseased Leech can also be harvested for significantly more Leech Blood.png Leech Blood than its normal variant.

Aspecto[editar | editar código]

One of the most revolting creatures that inhabits the island is Haementeria laetus, a leech that grows as long as a man's arm. A blood parasite, the soft-bodied creature actively seeks out hosts in the swamps it calls home, propelling itself with fluttering fins and latching on with a mouth full of sharp rasping teeth.

In the wild, leeches are the primary vector for a debilitating disease commonly known as swamp fever.

Esquema de color y regiones[editar | editar código]

Patrones de color por región

The Leech always spawns with the same color scheme, but the Diseased Leech has different colors from the Leech.


Sanguijuela siempre aparece con el mismo esquema de color y no tiene Regiones de Color.

Esto implica que es imposible realizar modificaciones sobre el color natural de Sanguijuela.

Objetos obtenidos tras cazarlo[editar | editar código]

* The Diseased Leech drops significantly more Leech Blood than its normal variant.

Combate[editar | editar código]

This section describes how to fight against the Leech.

General[editar | editar código]

  • To get rid of a leech that is already hanging on your body you need fire, e.g. a Campfire.png Campfire or a Cooking Pot.png Cooking Pot. Jump into the burning fire for a short time, the leech will then disappear. Dying and removing the leech off your corpse also works.
  • To remove a leech from a creature, press and hold the Use key (E by default) and select remove leech from the menu that appears.
  • There is a diseased variant of this creature (Diseased Leech). You can cure the disease by consuming Lesser Antidote.png Lesser Antidote.

Strategy[editar | editar código]

  • Bug Repellant.png Bug Repellant will make you invisible to all leeches even if you touch them. If you attack them, however, they will still be aggressive.
  • Travel well-mounted; you need something tall enough to keep you out of the water and large enough that you stay standing on its back when dismounted. This way you can remove leeches from your mount without having to expose yourself to them.
  • If your mount needs an escort in the swamps, use a flock of flyers; ground-bound escorts are likely to be leeched without you noticing, and if you do notice, you will have to step entirely off your mount to remove them, potentially exposing yourself to other leeches.
  • Keep your eyes peeled; use your mount's attacks to 'plow the road' in front of you as you navigate the swamps in the hopes of killing leeches before they latch on.
  • If you see a leech from far enough away, attack it with ranged weapons to kill it before it has a chance to latch on; once they do, it will not be possible to harvest them even if you remove them.
  • At present, all mounts are immune to Swamp Fever; only humans and Dodos can catch it.
  • Leeches don't attack or attach themselves to tamed Beezlebufos and any other mounts native to the swamp, making them great for hunting Leeches.

Weaponry[editar | editar código]

  • The leech does not require any serious weapons to kill, although killing it before it reaches melee range is valuable; try to finish it with ranged weapons or, failing that, hold it at a distance with spear or pike.

Dangers[editar | editar código]

  • Make sure to bring a friend with you, or stay out of its attack range with a tall mount. If the leeches latch onto you, another player is the fastest way to remove it; if it's attached to your mount, you can remove it yourself.
  • When they attach onto you, you wont regenerate stamina, and you will lose health slowly. Make sure to use that remaining stamina to get to a safe place fast.
  • Leeches are often found in areas that contain other dangerous enemies. Beware they don't weaken you at a fatal moment.

Debilidades[editar | editar código]

  • Dado que no puede causar daño a menos que estés dentro de su alcance, las armas a distancia son perfectas para acabar con ellas.

Taming[editar | editar código]

Leeches can be 'tamed' using Fish Basket (Aberration).png Fish Basket (Aberration). However, as they lack the required intelligence, they will not return once they have latched onto someone or something.
