Love these creatures! I got an ankylo as my first utility animal thinking it would get me a lot of stone, but this is guy is the way to go. I just did a run for stone on my island and got over 1,000 stone just from a few river rocks. And they were small. They aren’t bad at swimming either and I love the feature of the rolling! So cool
You can trap this thing. It can’t fit through a 1x1 wooden doorway, but you can. Make a trap with ramps for it to get in and wooden doorways for walls for a quick escape. Wood foundation is enough. I tame doedicurus lvl 45 with a mix of tranq arrows, slingshot, and club. It rolled into a ball but it eventually unrolls. If you have a trap, you can be patient. If you’re low on metal/supplies or just want a stone base quickly, this is the tame for you. The tranq darts idea make sense to me, but I didn’t want to make so much gunpowder and metal ingots.
