If you find this thing RUN it took me out in two hits and completely demolished my home and murdered my raptor and my little otter cuddles please like to pay respects to my little cuddles kept me warm on the cold nights
I only got a chance of taming this sort of early in game because managed to find a good spot on top of a tall rock where it can't reach, and shoot tranq arrows. Scared to tame a 2nd one. It killed me in like 2+ swipes as I still was new then. Now the same Theriz that killed me once is my best friend.
I know most of you are here because you can’t find a way to not get ripped to shreds by this thing. A few days ago, my brother and I were around level 25 on the south of the island and kept seeing these menacing tickle chickens. These guys were murdering our pets at night and stalking us from 200 meters during the day. One time, one came particularly close to our house, and we had to improvise. We went on our fortified raft (no we didn’t just run away) and my brother started shooting mr tickle. He didn’t like that so he followed us out to the sea. We saw a group of Megaladons nearby and had mr tickle follow us straight into the big chompers of 4 megaladons. He was never to be seen again. Megaladons don’t flat out attack you if you’re on a raft so we’ve found that to be the best way to take care of the tickle chicken at a low level and have done it every time we see one.
First time I met the tickle chicken.. it was terrifying.
So, I didn’t know they were hostile, and was like “ what the hell is that??” And went up to it, it hissed and me and started using its large tickle claws and chased me. I survived.. I swam through water, and climbed a rock.
