Tip : DO NOT bring these guys to waters with Cnidarias (jellyfish).
they will not survive because of their low HP pool (you can level up their health but it wont help much)
and always avoid waters with Cnidarias because their detection range is just broken.
by the way, this is how i lost my Sarco, Swampy Bob.
i also started a new save, deleted the previous one (i felt helpless) and tried to not repeat the same mistakes. (im still gonna tame a sarco in my new save)
I live on one of the islands in the bottom of the map (about 0.5 km away from swamp) not too far from the edge of the world. Every couple of in-game days one of thesee pop in to say hello. I absolutely destroy them. I used to almost die but now I have all sorts of good apprentice weapons. I once used the bed to call it Sarco Island but because it is very peaceful it is now called Haven Island.
Also one of these things killed my pteranodon Linda.
If u see one of these go kill it or tame it they are a pain if they are on your island I have had these constantly spawn right where I live but thankfully I set up a nice spike wall along with watch towers be careful around these AND KEEP YOUR DINOS AWAY I learned my lesson already when it took down my first Dino my otter called cuddles.... please click up to pay respects.....
I feel like the queen of my ARK world i have almost max tames I kill theri alone and killed the alpha Raptor might have killed those 2 spinos I have a sarvo 4 raptors 3 itchys 1 bronto 2 diplo 10 parasaur(bc my brother said I could play his ARK Xbox if I did somthing that included having 10 parasaur) 1 carbonemeys 3 trikes and I think thats it I feel so much like da queen nothing can beat me.
my dodo (lvl 4 at the time, thought he was dead until i whistled my other dinos to follow me) was apparently in the direction of the sarco (lvl 5). he walked right into the sarco and i was convinced he was dead meat. until the sarco’s corpse just flew into the air. man, that dodo was a trooper
Sarco saddle is called sarco saddle need to be lvl 35 to get it takes forever to tame i would bring some narcotics narco berry bio toxin or somthing and what everyone says about being on a high rock to shoot with tranq arrows and stuff is so dumb they must suck and ark and be cowards bc I tamed this thing with my fists face to face no running and I didnt even get injured and I killed alot of these when I was a low lvl around 10 I think face to face with a spear 😑 but they r great pets definitely tame this.
So I was on my Mary way as a level 5 (thought I was unstoppable) with a pack of dilo foll me(tamed) when a lvl 1 sarco appeared,so naturally a hit it with my journey man stone hatchet,hit a few time, and it ran away. Seconds later as I was walking away, it leaped out of the water and killed All of is by surprise
