PRO TIP! When hunting for one of these make sure the creature u are riding on has its follow distance set to low so when u get knocked off you can get straight back on asap. If you do not have this setting enabled you will get knocked off and if your using a bird you will NOT be able to reach your bird when getting attacked usually leading to death.
You can find these dinos in the redwood biome or snow biome. I had trouble finding them myself since they blend in so well and if they are up out of the ground they look like dire bears! Until one day I was going to tame a megaloceros and I knocked it out, the darn Purlovia snuck up on me and ate my tame! Always bring a bola and at least 10-25 tranq arrows, depending on your bow. Do not let these guy pack up as they will rip you to shreds. Best method I find that works is to climb on a rock or build a pen around it quickly and then starve it out before knocking it out, this way you don’t have to waste narcotics on the Dino. Use prime raw meat for 15%+ each piece! And if you wanted to know what they are useful for... HIDING YOUR STUFF AND BEING A MINE FOR PVP!!!
