This Dino is often underestimated, yes they’re somewhat weak but in the early stage of the game they can destroy you, their grab attack is VERY useful for killing smaller predators, and for pvp. I suggest taking one if you’re into pvp, make sure to dump a load of points into health and damage, their weight is decent so don’t worry about it
When you're past lvl 70 or so, these things shouldn't be a problem as they are incredibly weak and you can just pike it to death when you're in its jaws. If you want to tame a suchus of some sort, go for the sarco. They're easier to tame as they're slow on land and have a butt load more health.
if you’re on a pteranodon and gotta stop to increase stamina and you were lucky enough to be above the swamp, never and i repeat NEVER land on the sides of the swamp. the coast may seem clear but those suckers will come at you out of nowhere and kick u off ur tame and tear u to death
so try to keep an eye on any nearby high rock to rest on for ur pteranodon stamina, then yeet out of that swamp area with ur pteranodon ASAP
