Are you a new Ark player? A Tipp for you. He is fast... faster than you. The best way is craft Bola and Bola the Parasaur. Knock out and feed it with Berries. Dont miss nacoberries... Good you tamed it! Craft a Parasaur saddle and ride it! Good luck.
Paras are great beginner dinos mainly because they carry around 350 weight or more, they can also tank a few hits from most dinos. They can also harvest thatch and berries. They have really good stamina also.
