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
For me this is the best and easiest tame to do torpor damage. You just need to plant some carrots. It's passive tame and deal torpor quickly. You just need to plant carrots. On a 4x server it took me under 20 carrot to tame one. Just crouch and approach slowly and its juicy butt and tame then immediately ride it and wait for it to kick you and press e. You just have to time it and you're gucci. In crystal isles they are common in the floating islands. I recommend taming this as a first util dino coz after its tamed you can now knock a stego or an anky and a doedic or anything other than a giga. . . . Taming a doedic was tough for me coz they curl up and I end up wasting tons of tranqs. With this guy you can knock one in few hits in a few second.
These things eat carrots, deal decent enough amount of torpor. And for being a horses and zebras for Ark’s sake. You should have some carrots with you and make sure you have a LOT to tame them since carrots spoil very quickly I failed my attempt to get 3 of these already
