When I first started the game, I found one of these beauties. I immediately tamed it as fast as I could, and once he was tamed, I saw a fire in its eyes. I named him Steven. Steven has always been there for me. He gathers stuff for me, helps me kill and fend off creatures from my base, and has had a family with his wife Theresa. He now has three Children, Larry, Kevin, and Carmen. I tamed Steven when he was only a level 4, and I was a level 8. I’m so glad to have found him and we can grow old together. I’m now level 57 and He’s level 68. We’ve had a great life together.

A swarm of these in the water teams up AMAZINGLY with a Baryonyx! Use the stun attack on Alpha Sharks or Alpha Carno and watch as your team of Tuxedo hitmen nips them into a surprised-looking skeleton. Its hilarious.
They are so cute! I tamed one today and I named it Karri. She is a juvenile and very weak but still cute. If you kill baby or juvenile kairukus on purpose. I will find and burn your base in multiplayer.
Fun fact. If u like these penguins and don’t want to kill them but u have to kill them for polimer I have a tip for u. If u r in ragnarok and u want polimer kill mantis. The give u 10 times more polimer and u won’t have problem killing them Because they r ugly
DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE AS I DID. I hit headshots when trying to knock this oversized penguin out, and it died... Just remember to go for the body, and only use tranq DARTs, otherwise it will die, please share to others
Tame a bunch and make a penguin farm for poly. Nine females to one male works great. Set up a bunch of ACs and have them on wander when the babies hatch club them. Free poly within the comfort of your own base!
I use a cross bow its almost 50/50 chance it will kill it but if that happens you can just pick out a different kairuku, and feed it raw fish and/or raw meat to tame they are very easy to tame almost dodo like in a way
The wiki says that you cannot tame them unless they are adults. Well I call B.S. because I tamed a baby Kairuku/Penguin by just shooting it with Tranquilizer arrows until it fell asleep and offered it meat. Don’t trust what the people on the wiki say unless it’s from a trusted source.
For Taking. Use tranquilizing darts. I have an ascendant crossbow and kept killing them by accident. As it seems it takes a lot of tranq arrows take one down. But when using tranq darts it took couple shots but did trick.
The best spot to tame one is on the little island in the corner of the north biodome. Which pretty much is penguin island. Nothing really pops up there to bother you unless you count the ocean. Also dododex does say it has a high tampour drop, but if you have some raw prime meat on you it isn't going to be a problem. Tamed a lv110 it's only 5 pieces of raw prime.
