What ever you do, make sure it is alone while taming. I was a young level 30 lad back then when i stumbled across this turtle trapped between trees. My inexperienced mind thought "easy tame". I drew my tranq crossbow which my tribe mate had given me and shot once, shot twice, shot thrice. Then, to my horror i kid you not 5 level 80-120 turtles attacked my rear. I was now the one backed against the corner with only a ranged weapon. I drew a sword and started slashing, alas to no avail. The monsters killed me and i was put in a cage by my tribe for 3 houra because of my failures.
Take this guy because he is so powerful, I have one and we were crossing a body of water then all of a sudden we get attacked by a megalodon and my turtle fought it whilst I was there axing the shark, it killed me and I went back there thinking my turtle was screwed, I come back to see the megalodons body at the bottom of the lake and my turtle is down there with it and it was fine, I got my stuff back and never forgot that moment. (Sorry it’s so long) upv0te if you enjoyed the tale.
