Scouring the Beaches

You should search along the sandy beaches and tropical forests near where you spawned. Therizinosaur often wanders around these coastal areas, posing a threat to every newcomer. You must keep an eye out for its distinguishing features even while gathering your first resources.

Other Prime Locations

If the nearby shores come up empty, there are other high-probability areas you can explore:

  • The grasslands and forests inland from the southern beaches
  • The jungle regions southwest of the volcano
  • Along the base of the frozen tooth near penguin colonies

Identifying Traits

Spotting a Therizinosaur from a distance can be tricky. You need to look for these distinguishing features to pick it out from the terrain:

  • Enormous curved claws nearly 3 feet (0.91 m) long
  • Feathered back and tail
  • Black and white markings

Tracking Strategies

Following dino carcasses shredded by its giant claws may lead you to a Therizinosaur. Listening to its loud huffing will also help pinpoint where it’s roaming.

Early mornings and late afternoons seem to be when Therizinosaurs are most active and visible. It’s best to focus your hunt during these peak times to find one lumbering through the forests.

How to Tame Therizinosaur

Critical Preparations

Before you start taming the formidable Therizinosaur, you need to ensure you have all the vital equipment and resources required for this dangerous endeavor.

You need to craft a sturdy trap using Metal Dinosaur Gateways, as well as stockpile Exceptional Kibble or Veggie Cakes for fast, effective taming.

To knock it out quickly and safely, Tranq Arrows, Crossbows, and Longneck Rifles are essential. You must also be decked out in high quality armor to withstand its devastating attacks when luring it into the trap.

Securing an Ideal Taming Spot

You should scout for an open area clear of obstacles where you can build your gateway trap. This needs to be a location you can defend easily when the Therizino is down.

Having your aquatic tames nearby is also wise, so you can escape aquatically if needed. You must check for dangerous creatures like Raptors and Rexes and eliminate any nearby threats.

Executing the Trap Strategy

Once you’ve constructed your trap, you need to aggro the Therizino from a safe distance using your Longneck Rifle. When it charges at you, you need to turn and sprint toward the trap, avoiding its deadly claws.

Just before the gateway, you must dive into the water, so it follows you into the trap. As soon as it’s inside, you need to seal the gate and get to higher ground where you can safely tranquilize it.

Taming Process

After it’s down, you need to immediately force-feed it Exceptional Kibble or Veggie Cakes. You must also keep its torpor topped off with narcotics to prevent it from waking up prematurely. This will likely take hours, so you need to stay focused. You should have tribemates guard the area too in case of attack. Once tamed, you can use this ferocious beast on your side!

Solo Taming Alternatives

If you’re working solo, you could tame it safely from a Quetzal’s platform saddle instead. Or you could use a Grappling Hook strategy while another survivor distracts from it. You need to get creative if tackling this alone!

While deceptively peaceful looking, the sheer strength and power of a tamed Therizinosaur are game-changing.
