🆕 Based on user feedback, I've made some updates to how player tips are sorted. Tips are no longer sorted by total upvotes alone. Tips now receive a boost based on how recent they are, giving new tips a better chance to rise. Old tips can still rank highly if they're still receiving sufficient upvotes, but this change will also make it easier to push down outdated tips. Please downvote and report inaccurate or outdated tips.
If having trouble finding one in the swamps try bringing a parasaur with you and use its detection ability to see all nearby carnivores hiding in the water and walk up to them to check if they are a diplo. as long as you have some sarcos or barrys to clear out the piranhas you will find one in a couple of minutes easy.
They are skittish but not anywhere near faster than humans. They have low torpor and health, so tranq darts are recommended. Tamed like any carnivore, kibble is Archeopteryx. Can be found anywhere in and around the swamps.
Can ride but only underwater. In order to ride, hold whatever your ride button is and click the option that says ride. Level up in oxygen, health, and movement speed if using this for underwater dives. Really fast underwater, and can outspeed megalodons.
The Diplocaulus is a swamp amphibian with one major use once tamed; becoming a living oxygen bag. When swimming to the depths of the ocean, some disgusting survivors will suck on the bladders of a tamed diplocaulus' head as an effective oxygen source.
