Please man, if you are new to the game, and see one of these, TURN 180 DEGREES AROUND, AND RUN FOR YOUR LIFE.

I know what you're thinking: I can take one of those! No problem!

Yeah, that's what I thought too. That's how I lost my lvl 28 Dilo Phospho, lvl 27 Dilo Sauro, two lvl 6 dilos (yes I am a Dilo addict- why do you ask?), AND lvl 6 Raptor Resilience- along with several dino eggs I was about to use to tame the darn thing. Those were all my first tames, by the way. (R.I.P to them- rest their souls, likely still haunting me to this day for my stupidity. I deserve it :D)

Trust me, YOU CAN NOT DEFEAT A THERIZINOSAURUS WITH ANY MELEE WEAPONS WITHOUT DECENT ARMOR!

Oh. And bolas don't work on them either. As if the LITERAL DAGGER HANDS WEREN'T ENOUGH.

If you see one of these early game, DO NOT ENGAGE. It's not worth it, and it will cause heartbreak seeing your tames die to these Edward Scissorhand spawns from the pits of Tartarus.

If you must tame one, please use a trap or load em up with tranq arrows from a VERY GENEROUS DISTANCE. They don't look it, but these things are SPEED. If it starts running at you, either pray to a god of your choice, or get on your mount and start running like your life depends on it- because it very well does.

Overall, if you don't have an Army of Trikes and Raptors to back you up or a getaway flier, I do not recommend confrontating one of these things. They are deadly- if the samurai sword fingers don't scream death and doom, I don't know what to tell you.
