KO them at the beginning of daylight, right when they're supposed to sleep and starve them. They will wake up depending on level so be prepared to KO them again. Don't worry, they keep the amount starved unless you let them kill and eat something. But remember not to keep any materials on them until fully starved or those items will be lost when it wakes up. (It always wakes up at around 20:30). They're pretty fun at night, but trash during the day. Watch out for the "Sleep Bar" number if you're carrying it back to your base as you can't carry them when they're sleeping. Good luck out there, and be careful. They will destroy you and your tames. Distance is to be kept.
They look cute ,when they are sleeping.
Knock them out early morning (game time), they are very slow and won't wake up during taming process.In Ragnarok there is a mountain cave between lava biom and Viking bay. You can find them there .fly through sea area the cave will be easily spotted .
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
