This dinosaur is a very intricate but interesting dinosaur to get. I did find it near the shore line as it had seen me and wanted to eat me. However I had 5 tranq arrows which you can get at lvl 21. I shot all 5 and he fell to the ground. Very good dinosaur to tame especially in the water. It beats anything in the water even with its stun strike. I recommend using this dino to fight. I have one named Juju. One like equals One love for Juju
I got one near a river where I was planning to tame a spino but I saw the baryonyx and then decided to tame him since the spino was gone now I realized how worthy taming him was so If you decide to tame one go with your crossbow and atleast 10 tranc arrows and 20 fish meat and you won't regret it.
