ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
DO NOT use a crossbow for knocking out! Not for all shots anyway.
Use half to 60% of what Dododex recommends for crossbow, then finish the rest with harpoon tranq to avoid killing these guys.
I feel like Dododex is way off with their approximation of a 19% chance of death with a crossbow tranq. I'd say it's more of a 80%+ chance you will kill these with tranq only.

THESE ARE ALSO FOUND IN THE LOST ISLAND MAP, IT WON'T SHOW UP ON DODO DEX SO UP THIS TO SPREAD THE WORD.
Be really care when knocking these things out from a distance! Unfortunately they don't look knocked out when they are so continuing to shoot darts at them can be an easy an unfortunate mistake to make.
Sister and I found one max level in the aberation area in Valguero.
We began darting it to tame it.
It did not want to be tamed.
It literally beached itself and died.
I caught the whole thing on clip.
I was laughing but my sister was pissed.
- Main use for this tame is using the Angler as a "lure" for other anglers kill anglers for their gel. The gel is the longest burning fuel in the game at approx. 6 minutes per 1 gel
- secondly use is a light source underwater
Can be used to pick up 60ish pearls instead of 6 or so by hand. Awesome tame now since the update added this.
Use an dolphin to tame because you can shoot off the back and nothing will agro it 👍
Easy tame on Fjordur next to swamp island
They have a LOT of torpor. I tamed a level 10 and it had 1500 torpor
It's a good idea to trap them if you can then they can't swim away, making the taming process alot easier.
With 1 mating pair you can produce tons of baby's in 10-15min. Just catch female in fish basket and release to reset breed timer.
