Without a doubt my favorite tame in all of ark. They are great in everything except for their health, which is trash. So put almost all your points in health, then lightly sprinkle some in melee if you want. But because they have such bad health, trap them in a cage so animals won’t kill it while it’s knocked out. That happened to me FIVE TIMES.
My tribe lives right outside the swamp biome and these damned things are a Menace. They've killed my members dozens of times and they surrounded our mounts and killed them. Do not take them lightly they are cold blooded killers and are efficient at it.
