One day, in early game, I’d tamed a decent level iguanadon. I decided to go up that hill on the island with loads of metal and crystal by that beginner area. I swam across the water, and began climbing up.
After mining a bit of metal, several carnos and raptors went after me. I had so much metal in my inventory that my iguanadon couldn’t even move. Me, and my dino were ripped to pieces by the carno and I never even saw my iguanadon’s body or item cache. Don’t overestimate your iguanadons! I learnt the hard way. 😭☠️
I.... I LOVE my iguanodon. I’ve had him since I was a lvl 17, he followed me round everywhere, we sailed round the entire island together, and when I got him a saddle, we became even closer. He had gorgeous yellow spots and a lovely orangey-red skin tone, so I called him Spottius Yellowus. He is only a lvl 24, and I am a lvl 53, as of now, and I’m writing this from the swamps. We were hunting carno’s together, like the best buds we were, when a baronyx jumped me. I knew Spottius could take raptors, packs worth even, but I thought we were good as dead by then, but he just kept head butting the bary like it was nothing. His health had gone down 400 times before the baronyx called it quits and ran, but no matter the whistles, he chased that bastard down. I am nowhere near as fast as Spottius, and he belted it over hill and through river, following that baronyx to the ends of the earth if he had to. No predator had escaped Spottius before. It wouldn’t happen now. With incredible vigour, he caught up and lunged at the bary. It squealed in pain, attracting a nearby theri and arousing a close carbonenemys from its grazing, and they all sandwiched Spottius in, bashing and chomping and stamping. His health was rapidly depleting, but he didn’t bash an eyelid. Instead, he just looked at me, helpless. I wouldn’t stand for it. He COULDNT die. Not now. If I have my way, not ever. I broke into a full sprint towards the mob, disregarding my life and safety, and lunged into the mess. With my master raft sword, I slashed and stabbed, and I took the theri, on full health, the bary, on half, and the carbonenemys, who was head butting Spottius dreadfully hard. We finished him off together, and my iguanodon is now on 73 health. He is a trooper.
Iguanadons are lifelong companions. They are fast as raptors but have infinite stamina and can hit just as hard.
I tamed my Iguanadin at level 16 and we were very close. She was a beautiful white with multicolored specks down her spinal ridge. I named her Orangespeck. I guessed for her saddle as soon as I unlocked it. She was always there when I needed berries or simply to explore a new area on foot.
I play on console, and there are events. One night, I was harvesting berries on my trike, Goldenstreak. I was about to obliterate a berry bush when a 'Super Turkey' that was level 250, ran under my feet. At that moment I knew Goldenstreak was gone. The turkey hit Orangestreak instead. She was on Neutral. She hit one. I dismounted from my trike and desperately tried to flee on Orangespeck. She died while I tried to run.
R.I.P. Orangespeck. I hope where ever you are now is a better place than the island.
One time I was on ark mobile, flying around on my pteranodon (I was a noob at the time). And I found this gorgeous, blue colored one. I wished to tame it but there was 10 raptors. I watched it die, atleast I took a picture of it! (My pteranodon died shortly after I took a picture).
1 Thumbs up = justice for blue Iguanodon, and Donnie. (Pteranodon).
When I first happened upon the inlet that I now call home, I spent many a day exploring the coast around it. On a particularly sunny afternoon, when the air was full of the sweet scent of ripe berries dangling off their bushes in clumps of color, I walked East, and happened upon an Iguanodon.
It was a noble creature, meandering across the flower-speckled sand with its head held high. It’s hide was a creamy tan, dotted with orange speckles and it’s spine covered in a long dark stripe.
Cautious of the glossy black spikes protruding from the animals thumbs, I sent a bola twirling towards it’s feet. The Iguanodon trumpeted furiously, immobilized, as I moved in with a crude wooden club, intent on striking the dinosaur unconscious.
Foolishly, I stepped within range of the creatures arms, and paid for it with a painful slash across my forearm from one of those wicked thumb spikes.
Bleeding, and a little angry, I dealt several fierce blows to the Iguanodon, and my face split in a triumphant smile as it fell, unconscious, to the beach.
Once the creature had worked up a sufficient appetite, I fed her - for it was a her - a handful of Mejoberries from my outstretched palm.
By twilight she had awoken and was tamed, and as we walked West together, I made up my mind to call her Apricot, after the orange spots that were scattered across her belly and sides.
Since that warm afternoon so long ago, Apricot has been an invaluable friend and mount, full of surprising and incredibly useful abilities. She’s a fierce fighter; I once found the corpse of a wild raptor at her feet and Apricot was completely unscathed.
As I have progressed through my journey on the ARK, I have domesticated stronger and more fearsome creatures, and have not needed to ride Apricot as frequently as I had. As such, I have decided to retire her to a lovely life in a fenced pasture overlooking the sea, and have even found her a mate: a handsome orange and red fellow named Mango.
I am about to tell you a little bit about Iguanadons, and I don't think Iguanadons will consume narxoberry. Stimberry makes these and Phiomias Turd 31 times. Iguanadons are large creatures that can convert 4 of one berry back into 2 seeds. It is what some people call Upgraded Parasaur. It means "Tooth of The Iguana". This dino can be tamed with berries like mejoberry and azulberry and amarberry and tintoberry and other berries like Ghialnieiberry. You can also tame it with Crops and Tamingaatsfood and Wheat. Rare Flower attracts it, but also makes it mad at you because you consumed it before it did. Chapter 2 of Iguana Tooth will appear if I get 5 points, so make sure to press the arrow that shows what you feel about this Chapter of Iguana Tooth.
I had one of these called luke and it was on isle and that’s when I discovered rafts so I just had a raft base and I just sailed around with Luke but then I went to north zone and got SLAYED by dire wolfs and never played that save again.
The iguanodon a majestic creature everyone loves it it's faster than a parasaur and if you get a spinosaurus to follow you that you tamed you can ride really fast on the iguanodon and get the spino to murder anything in your path so honestly I just have to say that the iguanodon is the best and here's some good names Don the iguanodon then for female ones I have iguanodana
So I tamed this Iggy as my main mount due to speed and weight. I’m still fairly early game like level 35 right now. I don’t even have a flyer. So my iggy is lvl 127 and I took her on a standard metal run. I’ve got an acsendent bow that deals like 250 damage nothing spectacular. Level 145 Caron shows up. Iggy takes some damage and gets down to about half health before we take it down. Then I head back. Iggy is at half health and I don’t wanna risk losing her We end up running into this alpha raptor with like 4000 health. My iggy has like 1065 normally and after the carno she’s down to 640 ish I believe. I hop off and pepper it with arrows while my iggy goes on the attack. At this point I’m so sure that I’m gonna lose her and everything on her plus all my hard earned armor. ( no way I’m gonna go back and get my stuff the alpha raptors always camp it). I grab my pike determined to take as much health off of this darn thing before I come back with an army. Alpha just keeps hammering me breaking all my armor and I’m hammering him bring his health down faster then expected. Iggy helping too and we TAKE THIS THING DOWN AND SURVIVE!!! Iggy left with like 200 health and me with like 15 lmao. Never doubt an iguanadon that thing is a beast
I tamed this with tranq arrow and fed it tintoberry when I tamed it I went back to base equip it with saddle and I got so exited this thing is the perfect traveling companyon it has freaking infinite stamina and jumps which is good. The one I got is level 46 cause I was in medium mode.
Just wanted to big up my iguanodon (skippy) she just saved me from a pack of 4 raptors. I was about to die after being surprise attacked and BOOM Skippy comes barrelling through and wrecks them all. She’s a total babe.
Back in the good old days when my most advanced piece of tech was a primitive stone axe, I was desperate for hide and meat, and I saw one of those suckers on the beach and I thought, so what, it’s a pathetic herbivore, I have a stone axe and cloth armour, I’m indestructible.
Rip my day one tame. Found a 150 Iguanodon first day and friend told me to tame it right away. Named em Boi. Fast. Can jump. Gets berries super quick. Also gets wood and thatch too. Realized it was literally better than parasaur for speed and farming and damage and whatnot. Went through thick and thin together. Even killed a low level Rex the first day and barely clutched it up. It all ended when I took em for a cave run and was told I could bring em and it would work since he can jump and is small enough to fit. The memories all hit me as the jump over lava was wacky and we both hit the lava underneath. Realized I had never actually lost a tame I really cared about or was legit good. Only got rid of some bad ones that were low level I randomly tamed etc. I thought it was fine after until I was thinking of who to take to quickly get some wood and realized Boi was the only dude good for gathering wood at the time. Couldn’t even take em to grab narco berries either. Rest In Peace Boi 2022. I’ll never forget the adventures.
Once there was an Iguanadon that liked to eat Mejoberry. Mejoberry grew in the water, so this Iguanadon lived near a pond. One day an Achatina came and ate all the plants! The Iguanadon did not know what to do. Then along came a Dodo, saying, "There is a lake with 30 mejoberry plants about 5 miles in that direction." The Iguanadon turned and looked for the lake. Along came a Trike, saying," There is a lake with 25 mejoberry plants 2 miles in that direction." The Iguanadon turned and looked for the lake. Along came a Stego, saying, "There is a lake with 18 mejoberry plants about 9 yards in that direction." Now the Iguanadon lives at a tasty 15- berry lake in harmony with a Stegosaurus, Trike, and a Dodo. The end.
