Even if you don't tame it, it still gives you quite a bit of oil when harvested, as well as prime.
More Basilosaurus Taming & KO Tips
While taming the Basilosaurus you need to have a underwater dino to make it easier to swim back up and get air and the Basilosaurus is a slow taming process so do be patient.
When taming this, be careful, Mantas and sharks follows a basilosaurus around and will attack you if you approach or feed the basilosaurus. According to the Basilosaurus dossier, Mantas usually follow them because of their eating habits (Well very messy) and it leaves plenty of leftovers for them. They attack you when you feed a basilosaurus because it leaves no leftovers for them.
I believe the dossier, but yeah.
Click the arrow pointing to the sky if useful, thanks 😊 (Sorry for the dossier spoiler)
Ride dolphin or manta, water creature won't attack you while riding a water dino, then go near basilo feed it, Don't unride or you'll see your self dying, put food on your hot bar then click it when near basilo u can feed basilo without unriding. Up! So no noobs will be eaten by manta or megalodon lol
Whoever said riding water tame keeps water creatures from attacking is a big fat lying liar face.
He’s a good guy but he hangs out with a rough crowd.
This creature is so easy to tame. All you need is:
1. An Ichthyosaurus(these guy won't be attack by any water creature, except the jellyfish)
2. Anykind of meat(I suggest using prime meat and don't use fish meat)
3. Find one of these creature
4. Feed it prime meat(It's a long time between the 1st and the 2nd feed, after the 2nd feed it's fast)
And then you get one of these, just be careful of the megalodons, they will attack right after it is tamed. I hope this is useful for you<3
On island these guys spawn on herbivore island (the lowest island) the land has no predators but the water had megladons, mantas and these guys.
Ignore posts about taming bar going down, you need to tame it using only the food you give it from the start, if you change the type of food you give it, it then resets the taming bar
The feeding intervals are more like 10 minutes
Can apparently fight cnidaria without getting electrocuted
