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
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.
Whoever said its a fridge on legs is wrong, these guys don't slow the spoil time any more than your average tame. I tried to refrigerate mutton and it didn't work, now I have to find another ovis to tame my spino.
