Taming: how do you tame the Ichthyosaurus?

Taming theIchthyosaurus is perhaps one of the richest in Ark. Indeed, not only is this done passively, but in addition, the Ichthyosaurus is a very friendly creature that will come and play with you as soon as it sees you without the slightest hostile ulterior motive. All you need to do is find an individual of that species and assign suitable food to one of your hotkeys, then feed it as it approaches.

It may happen that theIchthyosaurus flees from fatigue or because he has noticed a threat in the vicinity. Depending on how prepared you are, follow him and keep feeding him so the taming can continue, but watch out for big sea predators lurking around!

  • Attention : Don’t try to tame a Ichthyosaurus by being violent towards him, if only with Arrows tranquilizers. It would be pointless unlike many other dinosaurs, and what’s more, it would run away from you without you being able to catch up with it!
