People say that they’re really dangerous early game especially in a small pack. I disagree. When I was just a beginner at ARK, I saw a pack of them and easily took the out. If you’re confident, you can easily take out a pack of them with a stone hatchet or even your fists. Just don’t get cocky!!! Getting cocky is the death of you in ARK!!! Especially against Dilos(and Raptors!!!). I cannot stress this enough!!!
They make a distinct aggro sound when they lock onto you, keep this in mind when one is nearby. They are easily outrun and with very little practice you can avoid their arcing acid attack. Spears/arrows to he head are very effective
Ever seen Jurassic Park? If not be aware, to the average new player they seem like an easy hunt. But do not let their small size fool you. These creatures can hurt even high level players. If you have to fight one try jumping around a lot to avoid getting blinded. Good luck!
