Advice from an absolutely fresh noob to other noobs: don't take its eggs if the mother is nearby. It's slow so you'll stay alive if you keep running but it just won't let go. I had to run around crafting 20 spears to kill it, just to stay alive (yeah, I know I should have used a slingshot I'm a noob okay?)
This is an awful animal to underestimate. When I first played the game, I thought I could kill one for easy meat and resources. The douche took 6 spears to the face, broke my leg, and speed-walked after me as I limped away. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE.
These guys are big turtles.When you hit it there go nuts on you.When I was a......noon I thought they run when you hit them so I hit one.I was like"I'm goanna wreck" your face and he was like"oh no you don't ".And it killed me.
