To me they are actually pretty fat good travel buddies and good for killing plant x so yeah they're extremely useful the only thing is once I was on my PS4 and I got a Ark and I tamed a few dodosand my friends told me they are useless so I told him no they're not they're actually pretty good suicide bombers because you just put a C4 on him them and pick them up with a Pteranodon and Drop them into an enemy base and just detonate them and watch the fireworks and also they're good biological chemical weapons get a cure first and then take a few dodos into the swamp and get them all infected and then pick them up with a Pteranodon and drop them in to an enemy base and then Cure yourself so yeah they are not useless and then I get online the next day and I see them on claiming all my dodos and then I'm like guys you know I can just team more and they're like yeah but if you keep on taming them will kick you out of the tribe and I'm like well you are sensitive about a few dodos LOL
Encountering this creature will mean your imminent death. If you want to take this you need a tek trap, as they can break metal. It can outrun almost all creatures. It will take approx. 350 shocking tranq darts for a level one and 1240 for a 180.
