You may be intimidated by their large size, but wild Spinos honestly won't attack you as long as you don't get to close. They have a very close range of detection for food, but once they do see you, they will follow you for a long time. They also tend to run in large circles and change direction when you are trying to shoot them. That's not such a big deal though since their are no multipliers for headshots on a Spino. Finally, a Spino will move faster in the water than you or most dinos that aren't a sarco. So running to the water to try and lose them isn't very viable.
Once, I was just a Beach Bob. I had a small thatch hut on the beach, with my dilos and Parasaur. I knew there was a Spinosaurus nearby, but it wasn’t very close. The next morning, I looked out upon the lake right by my house, and there is a freaking Spinosaurus swimming in there, just out of range, hunting fish. Nothing bad happened to me, my dinos, or my hut. Be careful around these guys.
I was crossing a river at level 5, hoping the evil fish wouldn't try to eat me, when I look to my right and see this huge spino not too far away from me. I start running (the water was very shallow) towards the shore, when I see a huge group of dilos and a raptor. I decide going to the reb obelisk wasn't worth it, so I turn around and I see another raptor on the shore I was coming from. On my left was just deeper water with the evil fish who's name I cant remember. Suddenly the spino got bored of killing fish and thought a human would taste much better. You can guess what happened next.
So I was just going about my day in ark, and then I see the spino. I don’t realize how much health they had and how much damage they did.😐 I was a frikin idiot and shot it with a rifle. It was barreling twards me. If your a starter like me, DONT ALERT IT
