When your taking the megalodon once you have knocked it out don’t shoot it again to make it sleep longer use narcotics because then the taming effectiveness will go down and you will get a lower level megalodon
Be cautious while taming. Your megalodon WILL attract other megalodons once tamed, just like ichys. Make a saddle while taming so you can head to base ASAP, or exterminate any nearby wild megalodons. If you kill other nearby sharks, you'll get some prime fish meat to help speed the taming process!
Make yourself a longbow with plenty of tranqarrows, then build a big enough cage going from shore into the water with trapdoor and ladder close to the Dino gate, build a small platform to shoot from. Get it to chase you and wait for it to come thru the gate, then close the gates to trap it and fire on it till it K.O
1. You get a tanky bait like carbonemys
2. Make Your Bait Follow You Near The Mega
3. Wait A Bit Until Mega Gets Attracted To Carb
4.When Mega Is Attracted To Carb. Rain Tranq Arrows On It With A CrossBow
I also saw another person say this just get a itchysouriour and I know I spelt that wrong who cares they look like a dolphin anyway put a saddle on it and kite the megaladon I thought of this while I was taming one
I tamed a low level one only level 4. Seems that evwrthing hates tamed Megaladons. It got swarmed by 3 other megs and 2 Mantas. Lost it within a few minutes of taming. Your better off with a Sarco if you intend to stay near the surface
South Haven is a great spot to look for these to tame, especially in the bay in the middle of the island, all you have to do to tame one there is kill all the fish in there besides the megalodon you want (I suggest using a baronyx to kill the other fish with its stun ability) and then tranquilizer the one you want with a crossbow.
