Not sure about this but I'd think it's reasonable to say a flamethrower could save you from these devils due to their low health. Always build a raid base as well so you can have turrets save you from the swarm.
I tamed a lvl 15 female one and named it Nova and she was really good. She killed a whole pack of lvl 20 carbonemys without taking any damage and I didn’t do anything except stand there and watch in shock and awe. This is a MUST tame for everyone who reads this. I was only lvl 10 at the time I tamed it and now I’m lvl 40 and this creature has never failed to impress me.
If you have these guys with you do not, I repeat, do NOT, attack a stego or anky! I was once roaming around with my mini army and attacked an anky thinking I would win (since my army has taking down a theri AND pack of raptors). Worst mistake ever. One swing from the anky’s tail and three of my Dimorphs flew across the map.
It you put them on aggressive and perch em on your shoulder, they warn you of any danger with a scream. Usually it’s a diplo or a compy. If it weren’t for my dimo I would’ve died hundreds of times, he once yelled so I left and the next day i went back and say a giga killing a pack of raptors.
Tame every one of these you see regardless of level. Up only melee and maybe some health. Once you have 20-30 whistle for them to follow you and attack your target. Hit a rex, bronto, or literally anything that can die once and watch as your hurricane of teeth tears it apart.
