I've found the best way to tame one is to agro it to a hill or mountain. Put down a few metal pillars and some foundations above them. Put your canons on the foundations. Aim for the head and it should be pretty easy to dodge the rocks.
It's a bit silly that kibble tames it a lot better than rocks or sulfur because even in the dossier it says that it lives off of absorbing nearby rocks and minerals. So mabey they should make it so you have to feed them a rare mineral like obsidian what if they made it so you could tame one fast and with high effectiveness by giving one a few hundred or few thousand obsidian . or what if there kibble was made out of a combination of ores and minerals .
