For those of you saying it’s a pointless tame and don’t bother taming it, you’re a noob. Ask any high level/ experienced player and they will tell you they are most definitely not pointless. A lot of players such as myself go around to check ocean loot drops everyday sometimes 2-3 times a day and with one of these can give you a chance at better quality loot along with more items in the loot drop. So if you think these are pointless then I guess you think max armor ascendant saddle BPs and max armor riot/fur BPs are as well because that’s the type of loot you get from ocean drops. Educate yourself before you speak children.
What they do is they improve the effectiveness of underwater drops (ONLY) for example befor taming this Dino youl get for example a primitive rocket launcher after taming youl get a astended rocket launcher and this buff last a quite a bit but the Dino despawns after 30 minutes and keep in mind he is one of the rarest creatures in the game so tame only when your in late game and being escourted my a mosa or somthing cause these guys are about as strong as my pinkey toe and they need giant bee honey to tame wich you need to find a active nest of bees break it down kill all the workers and tame the bee with kibb (THE QUEEN GIANT BEE IS THE ONLY WAS TO GET THE REQUIRED HONEY FOR THIS TAME)also keep in mind these bees are hella rare but not nearly as rare as the lioplerodon then when you have the lioplerodon you don’t wait any time sit on it and go get EVERY UNDER WATER DROP YOU CAN cause again these guys ugh expire after 30 minutes please like not dislike this is my first tip in the Dododex
All i can say, once you tame them and you ride it you will get a 30mins buff from them. After taming, you can throw them aside and continue with your crate hunting. Take note, they will disappeared in 30mins not 6 hours.
