Early game when I restar I always put together a defense squad and it’s three high level dilos and two turtles. All female just for extra food (eggs) anytime. Don’t worry about the turtles attack just the hp because the dilos are mostly there to attack from behind and do the bulk of the damage. Whatever is attacking will go for the turtles unless the dilos get there and then the turtles will snap at it and then it’ll aggravate on the turtles and they attack fast enough that whatever it is doesn’t have time to switch between all attackers. And to add I’ll casually take a stab from the side with a spear from time to time while shooting whatever it is in the head with a bow. Hope this helps. Also on pvp servers these squads wreck people on allos lol.
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
