Use a tranq dart and aim for the soft butt or head. Wait 5 to 10 seconds between shots, less wasted ammo, faster KO and less likely to kill. Easy to keep up with, kill everything on the ground around it to ensure a safe start. After KO add cakes and sleepy stuff (narcoberries, narcotic, or bio toxin) stand a bit away incase you are attacked so you don't kill it accidentally. I fly argy when taming snails since usually attacked by troodons and little thieves.
Guys ,achatina eat berry only with a mod
I think it's krakens better dino you can't feed it berries in vanilla ark be aware! They will require so much cake so better not tame one . hope this was helpfull it's my first time writing a tip •~•
Anyone who says don't take is an idiot... Theses guys aren't hard to take care of. I use to own 20 snails before I left the game a year ago. What's hard is getting bee hives for their honey. Once you have a hive and sap collectors. It's a piece of cake (no pun intended)
Lastly DO NOT GO FOR ANYTHING LOW LEVELED! Just like another wrong person said. Low level is very bad. Go for 110 or greater as it's food will be much higher and that means less feeding of cakes. Mine were so high, I didn't need to feed but ever 10 days or more. So worth the investment.
Lastly, like someone else said. Theses guys are really good at escape. Far worse than dung Beatles 😅 Dino leash works fine for me. Though tried wooden cages in the past and they got out. So either weigh down or dino leash down on the lowest setting (depending on how many snails you got)
So in the end. A worthy investment period. Just a pain on the honey...
