Everyone is making this too hard, use a bola, tranq arrow it, feed and your done you have my favorite Dino in the game. Fast, jumps high, swims great, aoe attack, knockout bonus. All around winning, I ride one with two more following me.
100% melee damage is 20 base damage with beelzebufo sweep attack = 60 torpor over 10 secs. A second sweep attack within that 10 secs will only deal additional damage. 1000% melee damage will do 600 torpor over 10 secs with sweep attack :)
This is the most OVER POWERED animal in ark to get. If you see a LvL 100 don't miss out on taming it. I have taken out carnos and spinos with it with ease and it its great for getting around and knocking things out. GET ONE AS SOON AS YOU CAN!!!! PS. Great swimmer
