These guys are ANNOYING as they killed half of my dinos when I had first time in the swamp. Also I tamed one WITHOUT a bola(I set my strong dinos to passive and let it attack my brontos-it does like no damage-and I tranqd it out.)it got killed by a rexy even though I had a SPINOSAURUS and 2 LVL 20 BRONTOS! They can also carry you in their mouths
This guy is my favourite so far, right from when I first meet him, I was a noob and wandered close to a swamp well he came flying at me missed and disappeared behind me, I'm like what the neck was that, climbed a big arse rock asap and looked around, bugger came bounding back towards me and leapt straight up that rock like it was a mole hill.
Tamed the bugger and took him hunting, came across my first raptor and shat myself thinking oh rap I am screwed, nope Kappa flys over my head, collects the raptor and pile drives it into the ground several meters away, hilarious. Always fun times with Kappa around.
For all the noobs out there, if these things kidnap you in the swamp, here’s what to do. Take out your bow/ gun. Pray you have ammo and fire right into its head. This strategy has saved me countless times.
P.S. If you have a strong melee weapon such as a pike or sword on you, that also works.
