Whenever you're in or around the swamp, carry a pike, wear full flak, and keep stimberries on your hot bar. If you try to run away after getting bit, YOU WILL DIE. Instead, turn around and start piking it in the face. Then, if you knock out, at least it will be dead. The more stamina you use while poisoned, the quicker your torpor increases, so DONT RUN
They are already wrong! It should say something more like:
"Found everywhere but the dark caves of the island, this creature will gladly ruin your day by jumping out and killing you as soon as you even think about going to the swamp. Nearly impossible to tame because it has to be tamed via passive which is very difficult to do. Worst of all you need to feed them fertilized eggs. Why can't it e a little easier?
easy to kill with a bow and arrows! if you encounter one, sprint back a bit and stop to shoot. a good bow will take it down in two shots. decent source of meat, just don't get knocked out! i play on mobile so i don't know if these things are true for other versions of the game.
