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.
Just did my first ever metal mission to Herbie island! I ran from spawn to the herbie island channel on my iguanodon, popped in my brand new raft, and started paddling... made it to the island fine, started taming my first anky, and my iguanodon frikkin shows up! This guy SWAM all the way to herbie island past goodness know how many megs and leedsicthys! This animal is such a beast!
They are great traveling dinos, they have decent weight and they can fend off things like raptors, sabers, and maybe carnos and baryonxs if you level attack. They can turn berries into seeds, one berry=one seed, it's crazy. And they take up absolutely no stamina when they run on their quadruped stance, on all four legs, they only attack on bipedal stance though. Overall, great creature to make long trips, from beginning game to mid game. I suggest leveling speed and health, then weight afterwards. Theres no need for leveling attack if you can outrun pretty everything. Except gigas..........in that case, just stop, put head between your legs, and kiss your a$$ goodbye.
