I usually use these guys as bait. I find it great if there is a carnivore nearby if it’s alone and I want to tame it. I usually tame a dodo and drop it near the carnivore and then watch it get devoured as I shoot tranqs at it.
I have a throne for my dodo that is protected by turrets! If you kill the dodo you get epic mastercraft stuff. Don’t attempt cause I have hidden things like shadow manes and invisible wyverns and yutys around my base! (Invisible wyverns cause showdown manes can cloak other stuff)
