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
You can use this guy as a distraction whilst hunting raptors. Once I saw Raptors terrorizing near my base so I took my Carbo with me (Karen) and she attacked the pack of raptors while I caught the alpha raptor with a bola and killed it with my longneck and pistol. Karen was still alive by the time I went to help her out and all of them were focused on killing Karen so I threw a bola at all of them and killed them. Also if you want to invade a base with turrets take this dude and use their eggs to make kibbles to tame Brontosauruses so you can start you first tour de la ark
