Hey, ok so the center, coordinates 08.1 / 63.4 spinos will spawn there, if is not high enough just kill it, leave the area and come back after 3 mins. Normally works, I found a 150 and I'm taming it rn
I've tamed 2 I. My life and my first died because I made it fight some megalodon's and mantas and it got killed by a megalodon after killing like 10 of each, anyway my second was tamed in a swamp and I made it home on foot with him by my side, (I tamed him yesterday) and I loovvvvvvvvvvvveee him a lot. He's the best spino ever.
How I got mine:
Get a pteranodon
Check for other creatures nearby
Land on a really tall, unclimbable rock
Go ham with any tranquilising weapon
Feed much narcotic
Kill stuff for meat and prime
There you go sir, 1 spino free of charge
stand on a high cliff and shoot it or keep shootong it and running away on a raptor until it's knocked out. it gets distracted very easly by fish, sharks and manta's (even while chasing you) so you may want to shoot it while it's distracted.
If your using a cage use a turtle to attack it then whistle back the spino will attack the turtle but the turtle should lure it close enough to knock it. Used this method to get a male spino to make a high level breading pair raising child right now
Most think u can not take larger Dino's till higher levels but this is wrong if u lead a spino towards a beach it has high agro range so it will attack anything while u make ur way to a cliff then us a bow with tranq arrows to nock it out and prime meat it
Because they do less damage than a Rex but more per second, if you tank a diplo and send it after the Spino, the attacks will be interrupted by the Diplo's push, but doing no damage, this is even more effective with a Snow Owl or a Daedon to heal the Diplo.
Best mount for killing alpha mosa and obtaining ascendant fishing poles take three to 4 buddies on spinos and scuba tanks and goto town enjoy the fishing I have 15 ascendant poles sitting in my locker right now
Honestly, these things seem content to attack anything and everything. I just tamed one without it landing a single hit on me, and I was standing STILL. (...on the back of my Rex so I had a height advantage to my tranq dart range. And protection just in case.) All I did was stand there firing my darts. She came towards me, but then got distracted to kill a Dilo. By the time she'd snaked her way round to me, she was so high on torpor that she turned and started to flee, not before I stuck a couple more in her and finished the job, though.
