When riding on a boat keep an eye out for these guys because unlike most other water dwelling predators, sarcos can still see you and attack you on the raft. If it gets to you it will be hard to shake off the raft, it'll make the raft move buggily, and if you don't act quick it will ruin anything you're carrying on the boat, and can of course kill you, most likely leaving you're raft stranded. If you have a partner have them stab it to death, they are weaker than they look. If you're alone, try to get as close to shore as you can and fight it off there.
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.....
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)
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
