ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
NEED TO KNOW BEFORE TAMING!
Okay, so I saw one in a river opening on Crystal Isles. I thought the mantas attack you as soon as you go near. So I slowly approached the tail near the river bank. The mantas didn’t agro on me, I thought I was just far enough away. No. Oh no no no noooo. It turns out the mantas ATTACK the second you feed it. Please don’t do what I did haha
P.S I lost my otter to the mantas. R.I.P

Up! So no noobs will be eaten by manta or megalodon lol
How to tame basilosaurus
Where to find:
Basilosaurus are found in the oceans surrounding herbivore Island
Basilosaurus are passive tames that arent aggressive towards you at all and they are carnivores so feed them meat.
Basilosaurus are surrounded by mantas and they will attack you when you feed or attack the Basilosaurus, there are plesiosaurs,megalodons,leedsicthis and tusothuthis where the Basilosaurus are,
Basilosaurus are slow so you're underwater mount can keep up with it.
Abilities when tamed:
Basilosaurus are immune to jellyfish stings and eel shocks and cannot be grabbed by squid, they produce oil in there inventory but it spoils, they regenerate health fast near the surrface, they can shoot rainbows out of their blowhole using one of their attacks
Disabilities when tamed:
Basilosaurus lose health when they are in deep water
After you feed the first time, it must lose 10% of its food before it can be fed the second time. After the second feeding, it takes about 15 seconds between feedings. So you have some time to gather prime after the first feeding, but not after the second!
The feeding intervals are more like 10 minutes
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
He’s a good guy but he hangs out with a rough crowd.
Fun fact: the first time you feed it, it takes a while. The rest of the time, it’s much faster, don’t worry!
Takes ages to feed after the first time but after that it is nearly instant worth taming as they have high weight and good damage bit they are usually followed by 20 mantas so taming can be difficult
