TAME WITH A BEEZELBUFO! I tamed one with little to no effort in an area swarming w Meglodons, Mantas, and those stupid glowing jellyfish azzholes (since Ichys tend to attract these creatures) and even though I kept getting swarmed, all I did was jump to shore where I was out of reach to be attacked, but still in range to attack w the Beezle’s long tongue. Works like a charm. Once you’ve eliminated most aggro’d creatures, u can just go for taming it unhindered, all u gotta do is follow it. PLUS if u run out of food, literally just hop onto land and get some raw meat, come back, and resume feeding. Simple as that, 10/10 recommend taming w Beezelbufo.
Best for killing scorpions on bottom of ocean floor since they don't take torpor. Scorpions down there will knock any other animals out. Once you kill it, hit it with a pickaxe to gather black pearls. Very useful for the next update with tek gear.
