Best for killing scorpions on bottom of ocean floor since they don't take torpor. Scorpions down there will knock any other animals out. Once you kill it, hit it with a pickaxe to gather black pearls. Very useful for the next update with tek gear.
Since there's no way to post it on the actual creatures wall I think I should warn everyone whilst taming these beautiful ichthyosaurus watch out and I mean watch out for any Cnidaria jellyfish they will shock you to oblivion I was caught taming when 4 of these guys jumped me and I absolutely freaked out
So yeah Cnidaria are easy to kill but keep your distance!
I tamed one of these named Diana. She was super fast but kind of stupid: always getting stuck on something. Diana and I formed somewhat of a relationship as time went on. Our bond strengthened she was able to beach a shark for me to kill it. Diana soon became one of my best friends... but nothing lasts forever. As I was leading her back to base via SS Dodo, I noticed a large figure swimming rapidly towards us. Diana made the fatal mistake of not paying attention to her surroundings. I helplessly fire arrow after arrow at it, but it was so filled with rage that they had no affect. I had to watch as MY Diana was ripped to shreds by an oversized fish. That is why my base is now called Fort Diana in honor of the brave soul. Thank you for your time.
Easy enough to tame that you don't need to trap it.
They're attracted to players and especially tames, so using anything from a turtle to a mosa makes taming them easy. They may swim off, but are easy to magnet back onto your tame.
Saw that others had luck keeping him around using tames to make him curious, so I tried to tame one of those guys with a pet Spino in tow. Unlike the first time I saw one, it wasn't curious about us AT ALL. It immediately retreated. So, because I'd found it in a river, I tried to corner it.
It committed suicide-by-beach. Literally swam up onto shore and insta-died rather than be near us.
I don't think they like Spinos. Leave yours at home.
On the very bottom right corner ofThe Island map, the open sea leads into a small island full of trikes, pteranodos, stegos, Paras and Ankylo. In the water in the middle you will likely find an Itchy and when you start the tame they only seem to swim to the other side of that pond (a 10 second swim away) and never into the open sea. Just because the water leading into it is full of Megalos, so it might take a while to get the Itchy back safely.
After the initial feeds, it will swim normally if your mounted. Once you dismount, it will swim directly away from you. Use this mechanic to beach it and stay behind it in the water so it does not flee to ocean. Be mindful of piranha and land Dino's.
