Sadly my first ever Dino tamed was my parasuar named Kilo. I tried to sacrifice myself so a brontosaurus wouldn’t break my whole base by stepping on it, but Kilo and my unnamed ptaradon attacked the brontosaurus and they died and I died. Thankfully my other Dino’s didn’t get past the wall of my base so no one else died.
Found mainly amongst the coasts in great numbers , they’re easily knocked out with a few club hits for beginning levels , but make sure to have a bola with you as they can easily outrun a beginner .
If you’re higher up you can use a bow / crossbow and a few tranq arrows to knock it out . The saddle for a parasaur is able to be acquired on early levels ( I think level 9) . They’re tamed within minutes whilst unconscious with any berries .
