Try a decently high level snow owl with stats invested in health and stam set to passive stay no wander, land right in front of the vela you wish to tame getting aggro on the owl then tranq, tame, and cryo the vela keeping an eye on your owl the entire time, if they get too bloodyvyou can always hop onto the owl and freeze up for a heal on both you and the wild Dino making it less likely for both creatures to die without affecting the torp too much

You don’t need to trap this to tame, it’s a solo tame. If you run up to it, it will go into turret mode then you need to walk circles around it and keep hitting with tranq until it eventually tries to walk away *in turret mode so really slow walking*
Make a 2x2 cage with ramps and a door. Lure the velonasaur in with a flyer. If you stay close to him he won’t enter turret mode. Leveling melee raises his projectile hit points. Also level stamina to attack longer. A high level can shred everything I’ve come across. Can’t wait for an imprinted one for the speed bonus.
