I had finished building a trap i was gonna use to tame a spino, but to make sure it worked, i tested it on one of these. these things to not mess around, killed me 2 times before i could finally get it in but i know have a bary and my trap works :)
When I was a noobie in Ark I saw this guy. Like the therizinosaur incident with me thinking this guy is passive I walked up to him while he was busy dealing three raptors. He slew the raptors easily then he drew his attention to me. I was like “Hello there” and he was like “Omae wa, mou shindeiru.” He stunned and easily killed me. Lesson learned. Don’t ever, ever go near creatures dealing with other hostiles. You might save your character by doing this.
I once put my Baryonyx on wander because it was in a pen, because I wanted it to be sorta like Jurassic park and later that night I heard the music that plays when you’re getting attacked. Little did I know, the Rex broke my dino pen that the Baryonyx was in. It wandered off. I was so sad because it was a high level Baryonyx. It happened on day 53. Later, on about day 70 I found it attacking piranhas. I was on my Allosaurus taking a little hunting trip. So from my experience, never put a dino on wonder, even if you want to it to mate. All you have to do is just enable mating, not wandering.
