Why are these guys following me they’re not hitting me

Why are these guys following me they’re not hitting me

Ichthyosaurs are friendly and like to approach you. They'll sometimes even push you to the surface if you are drowning (or so I've heard).


mybrot

It's true, they have saved me once, but then Megalodons killed me anyway


PzykoHobo

Ah yes, the ARK experience in a nutshell. Gives you *just* enough hope, and then feeds that hope to a giant fucking shark.


Cantwaitforhitmanvr

And before that it’s the only creatures that don’t kill you inconvenience you


whoadahbutt

I’ve had Ichthys inconvenience me a great deal many times. They’re still cute though and I get irrationally sad when they swim away from me.


DormantGolem

I fucking hate trodons.


PacoBedejo

Diplodocus knocks you off a cliff into the water, Ichthyosaurs push you into a pod of Cnidaria which stun and drown you.


SubZero-06

Now that’s teamwork


Mentaldentaldog

Like when you finally knocked out a giga but discover how quickly its torpor depletes


drdinkster

The first time I tamed I giga It was max and I made a bunch of narcotics, thought I wwaaaaaay over prepared, I had 2 left


paulfknwalsh

yeah my approach for gigas is basically "look at Dododex and take double that" also helps having a good bronto parked in bushes nearby in case you need a few hundred more narcoberries in a hurry


marijnjc88

If you have a basilo, use bio toxin. It'll be easier to get than narcotics (basilo is immune to cnidaria shock) and gives twice as much torpor per 1 item (80 instead of 40)!


crabbfish

same


SpartanKilo

Learned that from experience


SnooWalruses9019

Forgot to mention when the ichys give u a death hug which gets you killed


Juans_lost_cousin69

This is so true


Bums_International

The hope makes you taste better.


jonkke8

Ouch.


Candoran

I know recently a megalodon was coming for me and like 5 of these fine gentlemen swarmed and just generally got in the way of the shark and pushed me away 🤣


Wheatcamp

How do I have 1,600+ hours in Ark and I didn’t know that


mybrot

Probably because the oceans in Ark are terrifying and you should never go there^^


CrazyKatWoman

One of them fell dead on the beach and nothing was near it I got free meat or whatever so


AdamFaite

This is correct. In addition, they are a passive tame that can become a little bit easier because they come up to you to investigate. It's kind of like a dog that comes up to sniff you.


sifsand

Just beware the megalodons, they think they are tasty.


jane2857

They don’t just think I’m tasty, they know.


not-the-driver

They do this even if you're being attacked. They've saved me from megalodons a number of times haha


A_PartTime_Astronaut

It’s true


BAYSLAYER1234

Anyone else wondering why they have walk as admin command


AnubaG1

They are friendly, just feed them fish to tame them, pretty fast sea creature.


Cantwaitforhitmanvr

Ah ok thanks


RedDwarf_Mods

They prefer raw meat (prime/mutton is better) or Simple Kibble. You can technically feed it fish, but that's it's least favorite food.


Redneckweeb42

Weird considering that’s the only thing TO eat in the ocean


Umedyn

To them it's like going out to a restaurant rather than eating at home.


RedDwarf_Mods

Yeah, in real life, we know that they ate fish and squid. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ichthyosaurus](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ichthyosaurus) I think they eat meat in ARK for balance reasons -- they're supposed to be an easy entry-level sea mount, so they made them tamable with resources that you get off of beaches -- namely Raw Meat from dodos/etc.


merry78

Also they were in the game and tameable before fish meat was added


RedDwarf_Mods

Yep, they predate fishing poles, nets, and even crossbows. If you wanted fish meat but didn't have any sea tames, you'd basically have to get a tool/tame and attack fish in the rivers/lakes.

WiskerEggPlant

They are friendly sometimes when you are losing oxygen and trying to reach the suface they will push you up


dixkslayer69420

I swear this is a myth, I’ve legit had them push me down before when drowning but not up


WiskerEggPlant

i dunno they always help but they are a bit stupid they want to play with the player that they some times push u down


Zxar12

That's all they've ever done to me. I just assumed their "attack" was surrounding you, pushing you down until the Megalodons show up.


robogeek342

Dude it’s ark it’s glitchy and laggy as all H. E. double hockey sticks


WiskerEggPlant

I hate ark so much but i cant stop playing


devildocjames

This is the way.


WiskerEggPlant

yeah after sometime in this game i knew that this is how things here work u play it Early game: Hard game but good Mid Game: Nice Late game: The worst game i have ever played i will delete it 1year later Name: Ark survival evolved hours: 5000


devildocjames

Yikes! I think I have only a few hundred hours on it. I ended up deploying and when I got back, I saw it as a sign to try other games. Now I lurk the sub lol


WiskerEggPlant

u are from the few choosen ones who left the game dont come back this game put you in a circle you cant get out of im stuck here every time i stop playing i say this game sucks the next day: time to sleep i played for 19 hours


devildocjames

[Hah! 304 hours!](https://i.imgur.com/89QuIbl.jpg) Yeah, I loved the game, but the anger was real. Now, having a family and responsibilities 🙄... makes it easier to play games I don't need to stay glued to. You can do it!

When every thing in the ark kills you and you see something that doesn't kill you so you become concerned it might be a bug


Ambivadox

It's a trap! Like diplos. They're all friendly like with their little head butts of love... right off a cliff!


conehead27_8

They are dolphins they playing with you


psihateyouu

They love you!!!


Peepee_Retard_exe

I'm guessing you're new to the game. That is an ichthyosaurus. They don't attack you. You passive tame them by feeding them raw fish.


riko845

Raw meat or kibble, fish is their slowest food


cheeseroll7

Finergolem

This guy ^^^ Ultimate bro


reeeeesauce

They are a passive tame that eat meat


Helleri

If you attempt to tame one, use the time that they are interested in you to build a trap around them. Because that interest will wane and they will swim off in a random direction. Possibly to somewhere that makes it harder to tame one. Also consider building the trap fully under water as wild ones have a habit of committing suicide mid tame by heading for the surface.


vikingr41der

They'd like to talk to you about your raptor's extended warranty.


That_Chris_Dude

Not sure why 80% are saying raw meat. Raw meat is good if you want to take 20 mins to get a 70% tame. Kill a sheep and feed it to them. The answer to most things is kill a sheep and feed it to them. Then kibble save for the best.


FrostyWostyUwU

They wanna be your friends


Kabbejohan

They just want food


Tyrant_R3x

Ichthyosaur*. Ichthyornis are the sky demon


X4tnt

Can’t believe I made that mistake


CloroxWipes1

They want cooked meat to tame them. Put cooked meat in your "0" hot key and you will be prompted the feed them.


WooooshMeIfUrGay

Maybe use the ark wiki instead of posting on reddit...?


manifestthewill

Not everyone knows about wikis, friendo. No need to be smug.


barackobama1947

Why does it affect you?


Furdron01

See like, this is something you should just google. Why make a Reddit post?

jamescoolcrafter15

They are basically the dolphins ofthe game. They want to be fed which is why they approach you. Don't knock them out though as they are a passive tame. Only gime you should fear them is if an ammonite or basilosaurus is nearby which will aggro them to attack the player.


TheBlyatMobile

They are your friend :)

Cantwaitforhitmanvr

Ain’t rape if I consent


Matimat_Gaming_yt

Welp at least ur able to respawn after the expierience


erragodofmayhem

Just adding, as a tame they let you equip a crossbow while riding them. I don't think any other water animal lets you do that. Combined with their speed they're pretty great water mounts for scouting & collecting pearls.


k1410407

Curious temperment.


Scout_Serra

They are also the one sea creature that gives you red meat over fish. Pleasio and Mosa tend to just give prime meat, so it’s a nice way to get some red meat if you get a group of them.
