To tame faster feed it once and then dont feed it till the taming % start going down ... it works like KO tames when u strve them. It worked for me... and tamed a lvl 435 with only x10 balm and 22 mejoberries. Upvote so others can see and try this trick . :)
Ok so to tame these just find one with an argy and make a small (ideally stone) 4x4 foundation with all the walls having windows. Oh and when your carrying it to your base find a safe spot to put the ape and eat like a dodo or parasour so your argy can regain health because when u r carrying an ape THEY ARE NOT NICE! So just eat something and regain some health and stamina.
