Was getting wood with pteradon and didn't know one was sneaking up on me. Luckily I had my pteradon on aggressive when resource collecting, pteradon killed the titanboa but was knocked out so I sat there spamming stim berries to get him awake again.
Note: Have flying dinos with and have on aggressive when anywhere near swamp
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?
The dossier says dark caves but I have photographic evidence of them in the jungles. Their found in abundance in the swamps, and uncommonly in the jungles, so keep your eye open. They spawn literally where you would expect to see a snake. Stimulants are goof if you get bit because these guys will knock you out quick and kill you. To my knowledge it's not worth taming these snakes as they have an annoying version of passive taming that requires you to drop an egg near them so they can eat it. It's honestly easier to steal their eggs and kill them. Thankfully their not too difficult to kill as long as you shoot them in the head. A few head shots from a bow should do the job. I personally like snakes, but I'm not going to go through the trouble of taming one of these dudes just so it can die to an oversized seagull. Part of me is disappointed that this boa dosnt constrict its prey like it should have. Instead it's just an oversized viper
These things are nasty. They can knock you out with one bite, once you’re bitten you have about 10 seconds to eat some stimberrys or something or you’re dead. Fortunately, they have a weakness. If you’re slightly faster than them you can back away, hit them with a weapon with reasonable reach (pike, spear), then back away before they hit back. As long as you don’t bump into something, you’ll be able to kill them this way. Of course, If you have a good shotgun, forget everything I’ve told you. Just out of reach. (Mobile version)
