I didn’t see the part that said that it was good at gathering silica.
I’m not gonna type a tip that doesn’t have things to do about this type of fauna.
If set on aggressive and you encumber it, it may work like a turret by shooting animals but my guess is you may be able to put tranqs in it to use it as a full on taming tame… thing about a ascendant saddle with shocking tranq darts, gigantosaurus would go down in seconds. This might be a very useful game when it comes for fighting creatures. It was a big”ish” animal in real life which leads me to believe that it could have around 1k-2.5k health
Honestly I’m not the developers so this is really just an idea
