If you encounter a Carno beware because one of their attacks can give the player bleed affects. The Carno can easily be found in: beach regions, openings in the redwoods and grazing lands. The Carno can easily kill you by making you bleed then bashing you with there tough horns
Carnos have a “blind spot” where they have trouble hitting you. If you get under their chest, then they have trouble attacking. Sometimes they’ll put you in their blind spot on their own and just stop attacking. I’m on mobile btw, so idk if it’s the same on console/PC
So back when i was a new ark player i tamed 8 raptors just for defense, later on i spotted an alpha carno walking down the beach towards my base, and not wanting my newly tamed sarco, and trike to die, I did something any normal person with 8 raptors would do. Me and the pack and charged into battle, lets just say i lost all but one, Silver. Shes still alive today and happy, And we did kill the alpha carno.
