These things are the most deadly things in the swamp, for they will come out at you when you least expect it. They are fast, and reasonably powerful as well, and well worth the tame. I was lucky and tamed a lvl 7 the first time I saw one.
Here’s how I did it.
Step 1. Find low lvl Kapro
Step 2. Run at Kapro
Step 3. Punch Kapro til it faints
Step 4. Shove boa meat down it’s throat
This method worked twice for me, with a lvl 1 and a lvl 3. If you’re going for a high lvl, a crap load a health will see that this method still works
If your on the island go to the east side of the map. Go to the edge of the swamp and make a trap, even a two by two thatch one will work. Put door frames on the edges of the foundations, then finally a ramp for it to walk up on. You can also use this as a safety area to knock it out from. Vote ^ so others can see!!
