taming a X dunkleosteus is so much harder than taming a normal one. It takes more arrows to knock it down and you will probably kill it before you can knock it down. And yet you have to deal with those stupid eels and megalodons. Be sure set up a trap and bring your friends to deal with those eels and megalodons. Solo tame is ill advised imo. And do not ride basilisaurus when you try to lure it to the trap, for some reason dunkly is afraid of the basil and it will run away from you. A ichthy is a better choice, dunkly will chase you as well as those eels, thats why a friends is needed.
OR just use command "dotame" to save your time and your dolphine.
Very easy to tame if you know what your doing. First tame an Ichthyosaur. Then grab a crossbow and some tranq arrows and find one and knock it out. It is not be able to attack if you are on the Ichthy. As you are taming it, be sure to remain on the Ichthy unless feeding narcs, so other creature don’t hurt you.
How should I handle these guys on gen2? To tame these guys is simple, it’s a normal knockout tame but in the water, they are the best for begging (because unlike the basilosaurus they don’t have swarms of many’s attacking them.) they gather resources and a decent leveled one can mostly survive the taming process for a tusotuethes, although I am having trouble taming them in genisis 2
