This is unrelated to the argy and or taming it. I just wanted to find the closest to relevant place to post some advice for raising eggs. When I'm between periods of incubation, store eggs immediately, otherwise a Dino can eat if from your inventory while you're running around. Once I was raising an argy egg when it got too hot so I picked it up till nightfall hit. This egg was at 3% incubation with merely minutes left and I went out to get meat for the Newley hatched baby as it was close to being born when a little birdy swooped by and ate it from my inventory, costing me nearly 3 hours of time, and causing me to wait for the parents to be able to mate again. Sorry for the inconvenient location of this tip.
If you need an argy and don’t have time to tame one with a trap, just go to carno island, kill a Dino in front of an argy and let it harvest its body. When the green health icon shows up on top of it, knock it out with tranq arrows and the argy is instantly yours.
Just finished my first tame with 10-12 tranqs to the head. My mesopithecus came in super clutch, poo throws really helped me kite and allowed for super easy headshots. Used about five narcotics to keep him down.
If you lose your argys go to the place that shows your character press the tames button which says how much animals you have, Look for your argys name press request, then wait. It will tp to you, if it’s alive.
