These little guys are one of the most loyal creatures in ark. I once died to a carno immediately after taming an otter. She was a low level so I thought, welp she’s dead. It was only a few days later that I got the message that my otter died. I went to where the carno was and he was super low. She fought hard till the end. RIP Scarlett. :(
Just push this cute lil creature in front of a giga and it'll have an existential crisis. Realising the path of destruction it left in its wake and deteriorate in front of the otters blue sparkly marble eyes
It is tamed in the same way as the Hesperornis, where you have to carry a dead fish to it. Larger fish, and those caught by Ichthyornis, apparently work better. Piranha are better than coelacanths for taming, and salmon are better than piranha.
