People don't understand this animal. The reason the standard is carried that way is because it's a shield. If you breed them, they become rideable. Also there good bombs. Attach C4 and drop them in bases.
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. :)
Dodos are good at helping you get an oviraptor. They produce dodo eggs, which oviraptors eat. You can kill the ones in the wild and harvest raw meat which oviraptors also eat. And remember, to tame and oviraptor first KO it, then feed it eggs and raw meat. Plz like!
