Made a 3x3 stone dinosaur gateway raft for Rex and spino taming, Spino kept popping back out after sinking in to the trap, tested on Rex and tamed no problem, spino for some reason just wouldn’t fit in the same sized trap, seems they are bigger some how? Spotted a lvl 147 spinosaur female to tame and no matter how many times I’m forced to retreat and rebuild the raft I’ll keep at it till it’s tranqed and tamed to be ridden. So far I’ve nearly had my imprinted argentavis Little Wing eaten as well as her husband who’s three times her level. The spino it seems can alter its attack rate, it sped up a lot when my birds health got below one third during the taming runs on the 147. They have attention issues making a 3 minute flight to kite to the raft a 20 minute struggle to avoid an allo pack on the upper bank of the river as the river dried up preventing taking the raft closer to my parking bay. She’s currently waiting up river for hopefully the final attempt, fingers crossed take success
Another sad story. I had a spino named Captain Fin. He was red and was really strong. I had him for one day before the tragic thing happened😟. I was on a metal run and it was super far, and after I got the metal I started heading back. I was really close to my base when he ran out of stamina but right then my game crashed! I came back as soon as possible but I had died so I went out to look for my spino, but the sky turned super yellow and hot and I couldn’t see him so I had no choice but to go back. Then while I was helpless in my base I saw words saying, “captain Fin level 76 killed by Therezino lvl 80. :(
So anyways all this to say, spinos are great tames!
Be aware of Genesis' X-Spinos, like all "X-"Dinos, having significantly increased damage resist, resulting in way more tranq darts needed than stated above. If you're going to tame an X-Spino, take at least double the amount with you!
I had a Spino once. His name was J.J. I loved him. But like always, good things always come to an end. We were out looking for giant turtles for their keratin when J.J. fell over the edge of a cliff. I was on my pteradon so I flew over the edge and J.J. was following me back to bace when he was killed my a therizinosaurus... I just sat there on my pteradon watching him be torn apart, unable to help... So now, my bace is called Fort J.J. in honor of him. I will always remember my most loyal friend.
I'm gonna be honest. The X-Creatutes are terrible tamed compared to when they are wild. They lose their damage-resistance and it even seems like they do less damage. So in my opinion, it's not worth taming this one. (X-Spino obviously) But hey if you want to tame it go for it. Nobody is telling you what to do.
