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.
I had two iguanodons so I got a fertilized egg and raised one. Her name is DaBaby and she goes with me everywhere. I didn’t know I could get thatch and wood as well as fiber and berries while riding her.
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.

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.
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.
One time I found a nice majestic iguanadon I tamed him and named him lighting. and we were inceprable one time I lost while riding my parasaur.I looked and looked and looked but could not find him.But when I came over a cliff I found him.So one day later we were looking to tame a saber tooth tiger. We found them all right and the chased uS they were smart cookies they were right behind us lighting was a one hit until all the sodden he died I wanted to stay with him but there were to many saber tooth tigers.I cried for hours and hours and hours.I will never forgive the panthers.So the next day I brought a crossbow killed them all in a matter of minutes.R.I.P lighting.Thanks for reading.
One time i was playing ark whit a pal and then i saw this thing next to a para that my pal wanted.so we knock em out and my pal in just 5 mins has parry the para! When whit me, my igua is bout to die...my pal says we should kill it but i REFUSED.it was wakig up... We had to do it.
IT... SURVIVED!it had legit 35.9 hp remaining.3 mins later, it was waking up, but almost tamed. I waited,. And i tamed it! My pal was so confused about how i tamed it.
Not long ago I was walking along a beach near ish a spino looking for a raptor to tame, and then I saw a igy walking along happily, I didn’t want one at first but then I thought about all the great things it could be used for. So I grabbed a bola I had in my inventory and threw it at the igy, it was Furious at me, since I knew that it could hit me i went toward the rear and started hitting it, after a few seconds it fell I put some soothing balm and berries in it and in a few minutes I was tamed, I took it home and was proud I was excited that soon I’d be able to ride it and my Pterodactyl.

Me and my friend have a beautiful glowing Iguanadon we named.. Drumroll please..
Yep. Whole Grain was a destroyer. But one day, on Abberation. It all went down..
We were riding on him. My friend was on Whole Grain and I was on our sarco, Lightstripe. Anyway, we were exploring along the river for exp so we can get the hazmat suit for rock drake eggs. But then, suddenly, we saw hundreds of rushing megalos and basilisks coming from the left to the right. It was a raid! We hid behind a rock formation, but one of the riders spotted us. They yelled in chat, "Attack them!" So we were being chased! We headed the opposite way of the base so they don't find it. It was secret, anyway. Lightstripe, my sarco, started to attack them. Whole Grain followed, but we were sooo outnumbered. I called for the rest of our tribe, which was spread out all over Abberation, and rockdrakes came to save us. But my friend got kicked off by Whole Grain as Whole Grain fell in a karkinos pit.. We got a death message.. He was a good tame. Good for berry-collecting, good for protecting, good for attacking.
