A Dunkle Fish is really good for harvesting oil from the underwater nodes, along with a bit of stone. They also are useful fighters, with moderate melee and high health, though very low speed

Just lv up movement speed and this will be your oil friend forever

They can now gather metal, which is fantastic! They have decent weight also.

They van harvest a lot of oil with good stats, and they also drop a decent amount of chitin.

Great at getting Black Pearls from the eurypterid. 1 bite usually kills them, 2nd gets the pearls. I've never had to worry about their torpor sting with this fish

They're the doedic's oil-gathering, underwater Cousin! Very useful mounts to have, especially for mid to late game tribes who need oil and/or jerky.

On ragnarok in the underwater scar these guys aee crazy good for obsidian and metal and crystal in the area. On 2x harvest i can encumber my 211 dunk in about 4 bites

Best metal and obsidian gatherer in the game if farming underwater. Decent on stone and oil as well.

They are great at destroying rafts and can take a lot of hits from turret or plant X

This is literally the fastest metal gathering in the game. Hands down, bar none. Filled 2 industrial forges faster than they could cook

Don't be over confident against wild squids with this. It can't dish out damage fast enough to negate the squid's vampire drain, and can end up slowly getting killed if the squid chooses to never let go.

fights better unmounted because of its slow movement speed

Level up their movement speed to 130% and you can outrun anything.

Best Dino for oil.
I have a 200+ melee Dunkleosteus. I can kill 3 megalondon level 20,95,85 at the same time and lost only 200health

Can damage stone walls and such so the only for
Aquatic creature that can damage stone , so go tame one and reckon all those beta and Gamage rafts that took them hours .

This will be on the new map btw

This slow-ass Dino is totally worth taming, just have someone else with a raft to put the oil and metal on (their weight is trash)

It doesn’t say but in my experiences it Harvests more metal than an anky
