They can be knocked out by fists and can be useful in small groups in the early game but they are even useful in the late game in large groups ther spit is useful but avoid groups of more than one in the early game and yes they can just be tamed with meat if you’re early game and don’t have prime
1.kill some dilos, dodos or compy so that you can collect meat.
2.Craft a slingshot, wooden club or you can beat it with fist (If your trying to knock it with fists choose a low level one; if with slingshot collect a amount of stones first also remember wooden club breaks fast so craft and keep atleast 3 more wooden club for backup)
3.Find a dilo
4.after it's unconscious open its inventory by going near to it and tap and hold. After you need to put some meat which we collected at first
5. Wait.....if your dilo eats all the meat but still not tamed put some more meat to its inventory and wait......
