Imo one of the hardest tames in Ark, especially on the island (he is 3 times on the map to the same time and possible spawns are upper and lower south cave, central cave, carno cave and lava cave and he is very hard to see because he sleeps during the day)…but he is really worth every second of taming, my personally favorite…
If you find one be prepared that you just get him out of 2 caves on the island (lower south and central cave or you tame 2 in the others and breed an egg) or maybe through glitches
For fighting: knock him out when night starts, sounds stupid because he is much stronger then…but if you use a grappling hook on he spot where he can’t attack you…you can knock him out easily...the good thing is that he sleeps through the morning till it gets night again, so he won’t wake up that fast and maybe you just need to shoot him down for one time...but if you knock him out during day, be prepared to knock him out again when it becomes night again…good luck survivor! :-)
They should update these guys so they stay awake permanently in caves. So they can be used on other maps other than aberration. They could be a good cave dino. Please wildcard make it so these guys don't fall asleep in caves! It makes sense since there is no sunlight in the caves. "Up door" so wildcard see this Please!
The megalosaurus is one of the strongest therapods, but its nocturnal sleeping pattern make it significantly less effective during the day. The megalosaurus can bite and even latch onto enemies — including humans — and swing them around, hindering their ability to move. This carnivore is stronger than a Carno or a Rex at night, but during the day, it is much more slow and sluggish.~Steel Cookie 123
The Grizzly bears of Ark on the island. These dinosaurs may be hard to find on moblie devices, on moblie this thing is only found sleeping in caves. Cave of the clever is the most frequent spawn of this guy. DO NOT TAME AT DARK: they are twice as fast and can murder mounts as fast as a arthropluera ( the giant centipede ) also be careful as while its sleeping, it may look like a rock, make sure not to jump on a “ rock “ with a few tufts of fur.
These guys are a must-have in Aberration; they are always awake (at least in the bioluminescent area), and thus always have their night buff. Of course, this also means you must always be wary of wild ones while in their territory.
