Dodos are very useful creatures throughout the entire
game. In early game, they can serve as companionship or possibly can be bait with some tripwire setups. In mid-game, the are egg-squirting machines, great for kibble and oviraptor taming. Remember to use stims! In endgame, their main uses are pvp. They can transmit swamp fever, and are golden for C4 cluster drops. If you really want to though, they are the easiest dinos to breed and imprint on. Hope this tip helped!
For the guy who said that it would be cool if a dodo could sit on your shoulder: on ark mobile, a dodo smaller than .75 can in fact be carried on your shoulder. Dodos over 2.6 can be ridden. Fun fact. :)
