If you manage to tame a high lvl one (even with berries) it is a very good mount. On SE, I managed to traverse the desert at a good speed, and fend off against most of the wild animals. Put a fair amount of points into speed, and then put some in damage, weight, and health. Great mount to help traverse against the wild, search for an area to build, and explore.
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.
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.
These things are insanely fast! I'd been spending most of my time using my lvl 231 Raptor as my main scouting Dino, with a speed of 129%, but it can barely keep up with my new 235 Iguanadon with a speed of 122% even when it's on 2 legs.
Once it drops down to 4 legs, it leaves my Raptor behind almost immediately.
And while it uses no Stamina when sprinting on all 4, it still uses almost no Stamina when sprinting on 2 legs.
I've sprinted around for agges on two legs, so my Raptor could keep up, and even with only 940 Stamina, it never even reached 3/4
Do yourself a favour and get one ASAP. Sure they're good for gathering and seeds, but their true purpose is as a shot to long distance scouting mount, or even as a taming mount, since you can use your bow while riding, and it's head doesn't get in the way when you shoot.
