Useful tip for everyone: Ark’s day and night cycle is 1 hour in real life (on normal settings).
That means if you shoot the dinosaur right out at 8:30 p.m., it will wake up in real time in one hour at 8:30 p.m. the next day. For each past hour you have to subtract 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Example: you knocked him out at 10:30 p.m. -> he will wake up in 60 minutes - 2,5 - 2,5 = 55 minutes
At level 26, it is the first time that the Megalosaurus needs more than an hour to be tamed.. So be prepared to knock him out twice or three times
Tame the mega during the day! It is extremly slower during the day due to wanting a rest. It is a very strong dino, it has been tested to be even stronger than the allo! Be careful if you tame it at night ;) caw
I tamed one with tranquilliser arrows and a slingshot. It was even level 130. If you want to tame one I suggest finding it at night and waiting till day to tranquillise it because if it’s night it will wake up instantly
