If you encounter a sarco TAME straight away these things have good swimming ability and great melee damage,it’s also quite cute once you get used to it (use narcotics and tranq arrows to tame) EATS MEAT!
The sarco has a variety of moves that can make it dangerous so I recommend learning it’s moves before you fight it. While ridden you can turn the camera and then press attack to make the sarco spin around and attack making up for its lousy turn radius. Like modern day crocodiles it can also do the death roll. The sarco grabs a small creature in its jaws and spins itself around doing lots of damage. If the death roll misses its target the sarco will instead lunge forward.
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.....
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
