These are great to tame. Their a bit hard though because their sensitive. I use the Equus and Unicorn a lot. Gathering but mostly taming. I've tamed T-rexes, Brontos, Thylas and more with them. Just level up the heath, stamina, movement speed, and melee a bit and... There ya go! Perfect taming mount. :)
Don't Listen to people who say that they are waste of time. If are probably used they will be the best early game dino ever and in taming you just have to complete hunt Megapirana task and you will get a 10X smoothing balm and then gather 8 to 10 bushes and you will get 2 carrots then just go and tame it.
BEST THINGS ABOUT THEM IS THAT THEY DO A CONTINUOUS TORPOR DAMAGE WITH THEIR KICK NOT LIKE OTHER CREATURES LIKE PACHY AND SCORPION. AND YOU AND EASILY MAKE NARCOTICS IN THEM SO THEY ARE VERY GOOD FOR TAMING.
BTW THIS IS MY FIRST TIP.
This creature is a pain to tame but worth it. When I first got it I was like “Now, what in the world am I going to do with this?” Then I realized, it is great for knocking out wild Dino’s if you are short on tranq arrows (knocked out a lvl 120 sarco with 3 back kicks). It is also good for a mobile narcotic maker. Just put some rotten meat in this bad boy and run around getting narcoberries and use it’s saddle to make all the narcotics you want. Bam!!! Then you got all the taming supplies you need to go get some other Dino’s.
These guys are good starter tames in ark because you dont need a saddle to ride 1 also if it's a high level like level 100 tame it they have good hp, weight, stamina etc. Also if you encumbered you can ride this guy and put your stuff I'm him
If you play without flying, this thing is a must have. Decent weight, almost no stamina consumption while sprinting, reduced fall damage and imprinted ones are really fast. The Buck Kick (L2 on PS4) is really good forknocking out creatures. And don't forget that this things saddle is a mortar and pestle, so you can grind those sweet narcotic XP while traveling. This is my go to mount.
