Tame one male and one female for boost, park turtle near base put turtle to passive. Get on turtle and whistle follow all... Then manually set both chalks to aggressive and high range they will keep your base safe and always come back to turtle when target gets rekt. Any dino will be slowed by the poppy thing.
Everyone says this dino throws rocks even now, I got news for ya that isn't rocks it's their fecal matter so that's why it doesn't do torpor or even look like a rock. It does apply debuffs for those hit by their crap, this dino is a decent gatherer and it a very good battle mount with a lot of versatility.
