When Ark says that the unicorn is the rarest creature. That’s a lie. At least the unicorn spawns. This thing is supposed to. I have spent the last week living in a pearl cave in their spawn hotspot and have not seen evidence of a single one. Reply to me @Tofuna
For the ones saying they are rare and can’t find them they obviously didn’t actually take the time to look. Whenever I go around the whole ocean for red drops I always encounter at least 3-4 of them. So don’t be one of those guys. Take your time and actually use your eyes. Also if you’re going to fast like on a plesi mosa or ichthy then they could possibly not render in time. So take it slow and never sit still for too long.
When attacking, use Basilosaurus whales, they cannot be grabbed, be aware that once low health, the squid will flee and emit ink, and debuff you by making all nearby creatures aggro you. I almost lost a 265 basilosaurus to 4 dunkleos and 10 megalos that boxes me into a star formation.
Grabby Arms has many arms to grab you with. If you don't have a mount because Grabby Arms has already killed it it will grab you and begin shredding you with its spikey tentacles. If you have a grappling hook you can grab a nearby wall or the ocean floor and pull yourself away. This thing will break primitive scuba gear like a thatch dinosaur gate. Put your riot or flak gear back on before trying to make your escape. Your flippers are broken already.
I may be wrong but on Crystal Isles I think you can find them in the weird lighting/snow biome place and there are these balls of water near the ground and sometimes if you get too close they will reach out and grab you. :x
I know the danger surrounding these guys but, NOOOO! I charged towards it with my dolphin, Karru 'cuz it swam away and we chased it. It turned towards us and gave us a huge squid hug. I panicked when I saw Karru's health being sucked off like hell. I avenged him but, it just farted us ink and got away.
I got attacked by a lvl 125 Megalodon and somehow survived with my otter, Minky. I swam up towards the Herbivore Island while grieving for my foolishness and loss of Karru. Our quest to tame a Dunkleosteus went disastrous but, I have managed to tame one with another dolphin I named Proeta.
Guys, BEWARE! DON'T BE FOOLISH ENOUGH TO TRY AND FIGHT THESE GUYS! DO NOT BE A FOOL LIKE ME!
