I was flying around and saw a pack of terror birds killing everything so while they were killing a male I led the female father away used my bola knocked her out used mejoberries but collected more and then flew her to my base
If you are a starter and you don’t want to die of dangerous dinos get full clothes cloth or hide so you don’t freeze to death and bola the megalosaurus then you nock it out with a club or a bow of tranq arrows or your fists once it is unconscious feed it berry’s or kibble I hope my tip helps.
You will need: Argy with saddle, a bola, berries and a base fairly close to the redwoods. (maybe in southern islets?) Step 1: Hop on your argy and fly to the redwoods. Step 2: Find a female megaloceros with no creatures charging at it or attacking it. Step 3: Pick up the female megaloceros. Step 4: Land at your usual stamina regain spots. Note that whenever you land, you will drop the megaloceros. Make sure to pick it up again. Step 5: Once you're at your base, if you have spike walls surronding it, put the megaloceros in the middle so it won't die. Step 6: Bola it, knock it unconsious with your fists, and give it berries (50 is good, but if you have a berry plant, take all the berries from that plant and put it in the megaloceros' inventory.) Step 7: Wait until it's tamed. At your base, it's safe. Step 8: Name it, and i reccomend to breed females to get strong males, and fight with males. Don't get your males killed! Also keep females to keep the cooldown at bay. Please ^ if this was helpful!
Easy tame, just use bolas, trap/protect it with spike walls, feed berries, and use narcotics/narco berries to keep torpor up. I play on a small tribes server and tamed a max level in less than an hour with 3x.
