This thing has so much Health, when I was taming this turtle, my first slingshot broke and I had to make another one and I must have gone through about 50+ stones until it was knocked out, I called it plastic straw for reasons about pollution and the turtles eating plastic (you already knew that)
If you are having trouble with Dino’s at the start and want to tame a Dino to help protect you but a trike is proving to be to hard just look for one of these turtles and then knock them out and if one is not enough get more. They can be like your living turtle wall to stop raptors and even spinos and rexes from just easily walking in and killing you before you can even run
Just get a few spears, then stab them in the head while slowly walking backwards. If your brave enough, us a club to knock them out. But if you don’t want two-thirds of your health gone, use tranq arrows.
The carbonemys is perhaps one of the best creatures to tame in the early game, and provides decent protection against dilos and lone raptors. The carbonemys can easily be knocked out with a slingshot, and even a survivor with base movement speed can outrun one, making it one of the easiest tames for the early game. Not only can it carry a lot, it can be used a bait for taming (or escaping) big carnivores that would love to eat you and you (amazing pink dodo) for a snack.
Amazing for early game
Can carry lots of stuff
An easy source of meat, keratin, hide, and XP for early game players
Really slow on land
Gets stuck on stuff a lot
Makes annoying wailing noises all the time
When u tryna run away from something like a raptor or something, find a turtle and hop on its back. Then when the animal tries to hit u, it will just hit the carbonemys instead and u can easily run away while its distracted
If you are a low level, and u hit one with others near by, you can easily run, but be warned-when you are level seventy three, you will see a whole army of 1,000 from that one time you hit that one turtle. You can run, but u cannot hide. You could go to Neptune, but they will find you. The only way is to kill or tame them all, or they will never stop chasing you
