Honestly Ankies are super easy to tame, they just take a while. You will be using them forever and if you pump Melee damage you get more metal which is a must
1. Get tranq arrows and a crossbow
2. Find an anky of your desire
3. Shoot it in the head while walking backwards (they're slow so you can just walk while shooting)
4. When it runs away chase after it and shoot it
5. It'll be knocked out.
6. Feed it recommend food and any narcos if needed.
They get about 3x more metal than you! And depending on the level they can easily kill Raptors and other small predators.
They're found almost everywhere
Beaches, highlands, chalk hills, green forest, I've even see some near desert.
Who ever said they are slow DAMN 500 speed wild ANKY CHARGING ME
If you're breeding Ankys 100 berrys last 19:32
So you got enough time for a poo
Pump melee granted your going to encumber faster but the metal you get out of a rock is higher
If you think the mountains are too dangerous
Just go to the Herbivour Island
Its the small island in the south east of the map
They might be hard-ish to tame but its mega worth it
The best place to tame these guys is on the herbavor island in the southeast of the main island
When your going after it just run and then you will have a perfect shot to the head
Don't let your stupid tribe mates touch these. Ive blown through seven in a week.
