I hate these guys. i was trying to tame an ichty and I got one but as soon as I got to shore a gang of about 4-6 high level mantas attacked my Ichty. my ichty was low level so it had low health so the mantas killed it. They damaged my raft quite a bit as well. I got revenge by killing all of them with my ascendant bow. I especially hate them because I also had an ascendant ichty saddle with my ichty and I couldn’t find the item cache that had it. I’d recommend you killing them with a powerful ranged weapon from out of the water because they are very agile and powerful and can easily kill you when you are underwater. Also forgot to mention,they also almost killed my trike that was waiting on shore.
