I was swimming back to base on my sarco and when I get back to base I turn it off I come back to find my sarco missing but not dead me 17 days later: let’s explore the ocean on our Meg next thing I see is a sarco swimming in the ocean killing mantas fortunately I brought sarco back to base and tail stunned them with my baryonyx
If you are planning on doing anything involving water prepare to despise these flat horrors. They can out swim you. They can swarm you. They can act friendly and once you turn your back eat your tame. Beware.
They have terrible turning circle, approach one from above and feed it. Then let it swim circles around you. The occasional time it gets close you can predict its attacks, it “bucks” just before the attack, which is the tail swinging underneath. Quick swim up or back avoids it. Be prepared to get dizzy, long time between feeding
Tame a kaprosuchos and swim to one of these bad boys and do it's alternate attack it will grab it in it's mouth. walk onto the shore where its safe and have another person feed it while in the gators mouth (if you unmount it drops it) it wont attack or die because it's technically not on the shore.
Taking it is actually pretty easy,just ride on your pelagornis and slowly start feeding it angler gell(which can be found in snails on mobile)make sure it’s near shore and away from predators!(like other mantas)its a passive tame so make sure not to get killed in the process
If caught in open water by a manta fight don't flee. If you have a spear or pike swim up as it gets close. This keeps you above it attack area and puts you in striking range. The manta is slower moving up and down in the water.
The manta is quite dangerous, as it's attacks can punch straight through armour, even flak. They are very fast and unless you have lots of oxygen and speed, you will not escape. Just poke your head underwater and look left and right before crossing the sea. It's like a road, but worse, because roads don't have angry stingrays, very large sharks and/or killer piranha
