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.
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!
Whenever you're taking the Spino, remember to take at the very least 300 narcotics. It wakes up FAST, and whenever your taming ANY creature, surround it with wooden spike walls! Saves me countless tames from smaller pack animals. And to knock it, you simply need steep high ground and go to town with your tranqs. Happy taming!
Genesis X-Spinos are worth the tame. They are like Bog Rexes that can swim. If you try to tame it, be careful to build a trap higher than normal Dino gates made of stone with a ramp on one side. This Dino needs Behemoth gates to fit through them, so anything smaller than that, but a bit larger than a Dino gate will do. Had one get stuck in my standard Dino gate trap, but it jumped out once it’s torpor got high and it found an area of gate that wasn’t perfectly level with the others and jumped right over and ran off. Taming with standard gates is possible, only if they are perfectly level with each other. Having a trap made of stone fence supports and door frames stacked super high will make escape impossible. Pillars work too, but make sure it can’t slip through them.
Place 3 stone dino gates and one giant bear trap in middle, shoot it and boom here he comes... While he is on trap place last stone dino gate on the back ez tame. Really good in swamp everything fears them and kapro cannot grab you while standing in 2 legs.
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
While I was knocking this guy to tame him he suddenly ran away SO FREAKING FAST HE SHOVED HIS HEAD IN A CLIFF. Good thing he hit a cliff because if not, it would be day 1000 and me and my argy would still be chasing after him.
Got my first spino pretty easy with my heart pounding after witnessing the havoc it can wreck..I laid a couple of large bear traps and lured it into them the shot it with tranq darts...and fed it with narcotics and fish meat..I am currently terrorizing my area with the spino and two baryonyx
