Guys according to the ark wiki leeches don’t latch onto swamp-native tames such as
I think paracer
And I don’t know anything else it wont latch onto
Lets get this tip to the top pls
Tamable if you knock them out. But it is extremely difficult to do as they have low health. You have to feed them rare flowers and it is an instant tame. Watch out for the diseased ones as you cannot knock them out.
They Can indeed be tamed, however they are awkward pets to keep as they move so slowly in land. If you deploy a fish basket, you can capture them as tames. Perhaps if you caught a diseased one, then you could use it to infect other players, causing endless suffering.
For me when I was trying to rescue my dinos from redwood and i went with my Parasaur and i got attacked by these guys so i went home and the leech was on my screen instead of on the Parasaur so i called my cousin but he was no help(sorry if you read this lucas)and it turned out when i removed the leech from the Parasaur it was gone from my screen so I think when there is a leech on your screen but theres one on your dino then I think you just remove the leech from your dino and it will probably be gone from your screen hope this helps
