If starting out then these dinosaurs seem to be one of the most easiest way's to get raw meat and hide, given they are a reasonable level (I'd stick to about 20 and below for starting out, anything higher could be really dangerous) along side 'Dodo's', 'Coel' and 'Parasaur's' (which are not aggressive) That being said, if tamed, their eggs which are made into kibble can provide most useful in taming more effective 'resource' dinosaurs such as the; Doedicurus (for stone) and the Ankylo (for Flint, Metal, Crystal and Obsidian). Although don't underestimate these small Dinosaurs, they can/will be very aggressive when nearby. What I found best to dealing with them at a lower level was the spear, attacking whilst 'back-peddling' aslong as you keep getting the hit in. Then harvest with a pick for more raw meat or the hatchet for more hide. Whatever your preference.
If you are new to ARK then you should kill dodos for meat and although it will be hard for new players find some of these guys and knock them out feed them the meat from the dodos then tame them and use them while hunting cause there good for killing smaller creatures.
Tamed 4 in 10 minutes. 5 minutes later killed 3 Titan boas. These are a must have for beginners just tame loads and kill things like Titan boas and get great loot early in game. Must level health though it is terrible. Hope this helps.
Alright these nasty guys are really good for hunting but are a bit slow.the best way to knock them out is if you come at them head on and just bombard them with fists and or clubs trust me it works. They’ll be knocked out in seconds. Hi once you’ve done that you can then feed them 4x raw meat and you’re done.
