Chalicos spawn all over the map, so don't limit your search to the snow biomedical. The best way to tame on is to lead it into a trap, leave to lose aggro, then return in full ghillie with pillars. Pillar around the Chali so it cannot move, the just stand next to it and feed it beer! This way of taming also allows you to keep a friendly dino nearby to hold the bear and protect you while taming. Once tamed, a chalico has 3 attacks: a sweeping stationary attack that can harvest berries (left click), a running bite attack that can harvest berries (c), and a rock throw that can harvest meat even at a distance (right click). The rock throw inflicts a poison that increases hunger on the target you are fighting.
For beginners these things will spot you in a split of a second so don’t even think of going up to it with a stimberry in your hot bar. Instead, get a ghille suit and sneak behind it and feed it a beer! Don’t use stimberries it is pain And time consuming unless you have a bush of stimberries. They eat berries after they are tamed though. Not beer.
To tame this creature you have to passively tame it, the best way of doing this is to put on a full set of ghillie as that supply's stealth, then you Aproach it from behind crouching and Feed it a beer!
