Ok so, on switch I had a carbonemys called plastic straw (for obvious reasons) and I took him to a lake, but then we were ambushed by a megalodon, me being a puny weak level 10 or something died instantly, and I thought my carno has too. That was until I went back to see the megalodons corpse at the bottom of the lake and my carbo was chilling out, I got my loot and we went off together.
These guys have saved me so many times, even while wild. I remember the first time I learnt I could jump on their backs and any short predators couldn’t get me. Since then they’ve saved me from dilos, raptors, sarcos and even a rex!
