I once had a Dilo named Sally. I got attacked by an Alpha Raptor, totally got shredded, but was close to my base. Ran back to my body to find the Alpha eating Sally while she was lying on top of my body trying to protect me...RIP Sally...
So I was on a parasaur hunt which my dilophosaurus poisie, and as soon as we saw one, she darted at it. We chased the parasaur for about two minutes before we came to a cliff. The parasaur jumped off. I new better then to follow it because even though it’s not a super long jump, the area at the bottom is wicked dangerous. Yet poisie followed. I didnt have enough time to tell her not to. So of course I had to follow her. We got to the bottom but the parasaur wasn’t to be found anywhere. I could see poisie however. She was swimming in front of me. We came to a small island in the middle of the river. We stoped to take a breath when all the sudden, out of the bushes comes a trio of dilos! I looked at poisie and commanded her to attack after a minute a dilo killed me. This brought me into great alarm because I had no idea which way to go to get her. Soon I got a notification saying that she killed a dilo. Even better, I got a notification saying that she had killed another one. She still had one more to get, but then I got a notification saying that she had been killed. ): Note: 1 UP = RIP for Poisie.
I would highly recommend this as a first time tame. I’d recommend crafting a club for it. When I was new I found one alone and waited until it attacked a dodo, then sneaked up on it and clubed it until it was knocked out. They also only need 3-5 raw meat to tame. My first ever tame was a level 56 dilophosaurus called Greg and he really helped me fend of compys and other dilos
These may look like weak sauce but if they are in a group they can shred you to pieces. If you are to far for them to bite they will spit poison that blinds and damages you. They also come in a variety of vibrant and beautiful colours.
