With a taming raft they are extremely easy to knock out but take quite a few tranq arrows in comparison to other dinosaurs their size. They have a fairly long range with their tail and can inflict devastating damage if they hit you or your boat. I generally use a slingshot or the first tranq Arrow to get its attention and since they're so slow you can easily cut it backwards wherever you needed to go. It will lose interest if you get too far away from it so try to stay fairly close.
