Since the flyer nerf v1 (don't know about v2) these are probably one of the best ways to get around the island. On four legs, these things are probably faster than anything that's not a Gallimimus, and they have no stamina drain, if not it drains very slowly. On two legs they have a decent jump, but no matter what they have decent weight, health, and ok damage. And since their saddle is cheap and low level, they can be used very early in the game.
Iguanadons are super slept on for their utility outside of making seeds. They hardly consume stamina when running on all fours, you can use your hotbar while riding them, and they're forever giving you moral support with their permanently fixed thumbs up 👍
Iguanodon is a very useful dino. Its strong, fast, have a lot of stamina, can jump really high, can collect a ton of berries, can turn it to seeds, when u need, and poop for u big eggs. :D A must-have creature in the game.
I have no idea why no one talks about their amazing ability to gather berries. If you want rockarrots, or a ton of berries, get the iguanodon. It takes out the bush in 1 swipe, and gives twice the berries you would possibly get with a parasaur. Another thing is, on all fours they outrun direwolves. That is good for leading a wild direwolf into another place. Iguanodons have the ability to change colors a bit at night. I have posted mutiple posts about Iguanodons color changing. Yet no one has posted it yet. I HAD an Iguanodon, but I had to kill it due to a dire wolf. That attempt ended terribly. The direwolf had taken damage because my Iguanodon nearly killed it! So I had to kill it sadly... But Iguanodons color change! She was all brown, and at night changed to blue. Another Iguanodon I saw was orange, but changed to a demon red.... Get an iguanodon. I really recommend it. They just may be a bit hard to find at first.
