Just spawned into a new world on the island and spent a solid 30 min making a thatch base. I walked down the beach and saw a spin-off pop out of the ocean right in front of me. Killed me in two hits. Was not expecting to see a spin-off in my first 30 of playing! Going to try and tame it tomorrow.
I wasn't expecting for one to spawn in the easy zone on the shore line like come on i was coming back home from doing a mission and the Spino gave me a heart attack but I guess it was my fault for killing all of the cinardia (jelly fish) in the river causing it to spawn in since I made room for it. But now not only do I have to deal with megapiranhas, jellyfish,titanboas, and megalodons I have to deal with a spino now too.
