If you ever encounter one in the wild, and you are in an early stage in the game, run the opposite direction. Also try not to agrovate it unless you are up to the KO/Fight.
Good luck if you encounter it!
Encounter this in the snow biome. Found these bad boys in west zone 3 I assume, just chillin up north. If you find a pack, run. Run FAST. Make breaks behind a large creature like a bronto or diplo. Head to your base. If it still follows you, get the tranqs and it will run away.
There usually found in the red woods by the huge mountain, I’m pretty sure there found in other places too, but the red woods works best for me. Also if ur trying to tame one aim for the head with tranqs, but if they get too bloody start aiming at the body.
If you’re going to the arctic, bring a raft, cause these guys, along with scorpions, allosauruses, trexes, sabers, and carnos will shred you in seconds. But when you’re on your raft they can’t touch you. Good farming item caches from dead creatures. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR RAFT!!!!! SHARK ZONE!!!!!
If your going to challenge something high level, whether for taming or killing, make sure you have a large rock or cliff to perch on, otherwise you'll have to have a powerful melee weapon like a sword. If you engage into battle, always have a backup plan to escape, whether it be a fast mount or a raft. Never fight something high level if your not confident your tame or you can handle said situation.
