Be warned after you kill all the Mantas that are surrounding the basilo. There is a high chance that another manta will come wandering, and will attack you. I know this because I killed all the Mantas was taming the basilo and my megalodon all of a sudden after I got hit from something attacked and killed the baslio. Angry and sadness.
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
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
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
- Immune to electric shocks (electrophorus/eel, jellyfish)
- Immune to tuso/squid hug
- Long taming process due to the first feed in which you have to wait for its hunger bar to drop 10% to feed again
- Loses health in deep waters
- Slow turning
How to tame:
Get a good water tame (prefferably sarcosuchus or baryonyx) and get the manta's attention WITHOUT HITTING THE BASILOSAURUS, afterwards, kill all the mantas and then begin feeding the Basilosaurus, it is important to note that the time between first and second feed is long (abt 6 minutes), try to stay near your basilosaurus and kill any mantas/megs that come near it. That's it from me, bye.
Here’s a tip! Take a Baryonyx out and stun all of the creatures around it! Try not to hit the Bassey, all the others will follow you and you can easily stun and kill them all! Have kibble or preferred taming method in you last item slot! Put you Barry on follow and just feed ‘em! 😌👍🏻 HAPPY TAMING!!
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!
A living oil mine and immune to jellyfish and someone who likes to ignore the hug of the Tuso . Yup definitely worth taming and for some of you who don’t know how to tame this kind of Dino then this is how you do it
Step 1: put the item you will use to tame in your hot bar
Step 2: get close to the Dino then tap the item to feed it then keep feeding it until it tame up
I am telling process because I had problems passive taming when I was a beginner
Discovered this by accident, but a Sinomacrops will scream at and scare away all the mantas that surround the Basi. Not required, but the easiest way I found was to set my Sino to have "auto scream" enabled and "scream requires aggro" disabled. When you get semi close it'll scream which will make all, or most of the Mantas flee for long enough to feed the Basi. Hope this helps and happy whaling!!
