As a beginner I tamed several of these. I am now level 80 and I still have most of them. I use them mainly for base defense and storage. If you have a feeding trough nearby you basically have a living chest.these have great health and female's will give eggs for food.
First dino I ever tamed and bred. In my opinion its a slow breeder. But hell of a defender. Its just a good tame all around especially due to the fact its 10x better then a trike (in defense) and the saddle is relatively easy to unlock. Plus its got a cool swimming animation.
