ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
Tame a Baryonyx to deal with the manta or bring a crossbow. They are easy to pick off and then you can feed it. Extremely fun animals and their right click makes them jump and spray water, forming a rainbow!!!
More Basilosaurus Taming & KO Tips
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.
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.

Super easy, super useful!
He’s a good guy but he hangs out with a rough crowd.
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
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
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!
