Good mount fast and can swim. Many says it is one of the best cave mounts. But for me every cave has its best mounts. It is best for swamp caves. The reason why its not good is because it needs fish meat. You don't get fish meat available in all caves. Most you encounter are raw meat givers. You can increase lost health by feeding meat or non veg to the respective dinos. I am taking a very basic perspective of cave venturing scenerio. So you have to pack a lot of fish meat before going in or something else you can do for this. Or just take a good level meat eating mount.
I would argue that this dinosaur is the strongest mount that can fight on both land and in the water. I had one that was bred multiple generations, full imprint, purple saddle. I named him Fury to represent all of the anguish I experienced leading up to his creation. He was able to handle anything I threw at him with ease. People were surprised to hear that I was easily able to kill both squids and alpha carnos with him. Never got to attempt an alpha Rex. He met his match when I attempted an alpha squid. RIP Fury.
