All these tips here tells you how to tame it... but what they fail to mention is the fact, you have to breed it on land, can’t move the egg and the baby HAVE to STAY IN THE WATER!! Don’t push the baby on land or it WILL EXPLODE!!!! I just watch my baby explode right before my eyes!!! Never have I seen a Dino exposed before!!!
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.
These guys are the kings of trilobite hunting. Not only do they deal additional damage to them, they're great at collecting chitin, oil, and pearls. Other perks: they don't need a saddle to be ridden while in the water, they provide you with oxygen underwater, and are faster than just about anything while swimming. Super underrated mounts imo.
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.
