I saw around 3-4in the cave containing the artefact of the clever. Just clear out the cave with wolf/saber, tame the beetles. Have a friend with a quetz outside with a base with enough cages for each beetle. This can also be done with Arventagis with riders. Pick up beetles. Only problem is that u need around 6 people this way and I don’t think that arventagis can pick up dung beetles am checking this after.- also either have fridges or wood fridges for the dung on quetz so it doesn’t spoil
I just used bug repellent and I tamed the dung beetle easy using spoiled meat and just walked out of the cave with holding the dung beetle then flew away on my Argie back home. I called him horn and he lives in a nice home.
You can’t feed beetles titanosaur poop. So best is diplo or bronto poop. Go in a cave with bug repellent and a raptor (a strong one). You can go to the hunter’s cave because it is the easiest cave and megalosaurus won’t spawn there nor will centipedes spawn a lot in the there. If you are far away, bring Argentavis to carry the raptor and pick up the beetle yourself. If your lvl is too low well I guess you’re gonna need to travel all the way back on raptor-back. Again.
When I was exploring the artifact of the clever. I met this little guy halfway through I decided to tame the beetle with spoiled meat. After a while, he was tamed and I called him companion but that was short lived as I was attacked by a swarm of spiders, scorpions, and iballisks and companion was trying to kill them, you can already guess what happened...
