I'm playing on pg and the island that I live on has a spino on it. So I've learned to deal with it and here are some tips. If your low level don't get to close they have a short agro range on land. When your higher level you shouldn't really want to fight one just stay away. For taming just do it as usuall a cliff or hill is useful. Hope that helped!
One time my freind and I decided we should move base locations
So we built a raft we threw all of our dino's on it and set sail through the river(witch led into a swamp). We were Noobs and a spino killed us and most of our dinos luckily it ran of and we got our gear back. We only made it out with a trike and a dilo (the trike had most of our stuff luckily). To this day that raft sits in that swamp waiting to be rescued.
In Valguero they spawn west of small Islands (starter point for noobs). They got attracted by any dino, and a fleeing phiomias or parasaur will eventually get it into water... Make sure to enclose all you base or you might get D-Day wiped
Don't assume just because they are big, they will be slow. They are insanely fast on land and in sea. Their top speed, reactions, attack speed and turning radius are sharper than their teeth and claws. Just because you are on your prized Raptor, sniping from a distance, does not mean it won't reach you faster than you can turn and start to run away.
Tip/Hint: Spinos typically spawn in shallow bodies of water. When encountering, never run. Creep to the end of their tails. If you can, find a ledge, rock, or tree of some sort to hide behind. If you have a bola, use it to stun the Spino. Never go out hunting unless you have a Level 10 Dilo at least. It'll make your life so much easier. This tip is for experienced players. Incase you are wondering where the tips are for 2019, here it is!
