Definitely one of the best underrated games in the game they are great for diving for pearls but can be stored on land they don't need oxygen, they can go into caves and enter the underwater bubble and you can easily tame it by aggro-ing it out of swamp, the kibble needed is also really easy to get and I got my 130 kibble tamed by collecting eggs on the beach
There is a glitch where when you are on a raft with a sarco and you box it in and you get on and off with either a monkey or compy on your shoulder and you glitch inside the sarco and you open up your map it will show the entire map for you whether you’ve explored there or not.
Something that I don't see too much is acknowledgement of the sarcos ability to not only sprint underwater, but regen stamina while sprinting if underwater. Also, a sprinting sarco in water is the third fastest speed of any tamable creature.
A tip for newish-players: My Sarco is still only a level twenty-something, by even by level 7, she was killing Titanoboas and kiting megalodons with ease. I can't recommend the Sarco enough as a swamp hunting mount-- and as I said before, ESPECIALLY for Titanoboas. You'll have leather coming in by the hundreds. Just be careful that you go at them head-on, and that you don't take on more than a few beasties at a time. Be especially wary of the Kapro. They'll knock you flat and leave you vulnerable to whatever horrors are crouching in the shadows. Have a pike on hand for those pesky bugs that your Sarco can't reach. And beware, dear reader, the frumious Baryonyx, with jaws that bite and claws that catch. They have a penchant of attacking from the side, making it quite a hastle to get back at them. (At least, from my experiences.) Want to take on other Sarcos with your Sarco? Have no fear. Just get your melee damage up a little bit, and you should be fine.
But as always, tread carefully.
Faster than a megeladon, more agile than a megeladon, easier to tame and can go on land. What's not to like? It's base swimming speed is fast which makes it very safe to travel the coast and make runs to herbivore island.
I love dinos for four years, I loved the crap out of of the Spino. And then... I found this beautiful creature. I don’t know if I’ve just been lucky of what, but I have tamed up a bunch of speed demons. I have a herd of them. I’m growing the herd. Nothing goes near my base because it’s immediately caught in the circle of death. I watched a level 20 bronco get shredded by these guys in about 4 seconds. If you seem to lack a good meat-eater, a couple of these guys do the trick. Seriously amazing.
I have found while riding a Sacro that it is extremely powerful. I put in for health and Melee and stamina and i was able 5o defeat 4 to 5 Rexs at one time and a alpha raptor and a few Griffins and it is really good at getting around on water and taking out fishes and i haven't swam in the ocean due to my level isnt high enough to get the scuba gears but other than that the things said about the Scaro is true and i would use a Scaro to go anywhere the only problem is it attack cone i would assume it would be able to use it tail like a alligator would to hit a target but it still really powerful and i hope dear readers you find this creature really good just put in health, melee, and stamina and you can rule Ark.

Favorite tame for early to mid game. Ridiculously fast in water and not too bad on land. Lvl up only health and melee damage, turn radius beats megaladons and I've killed many alpha megas this way. Very beefy and can tank hits at 3k health with mounted combat, letting you tranq anything that doesn't knock you off your mount or attack the rider directly (like the Rex or spino).
