I found out you can't escape this creature you're screwed if you try to do that but you can let it charge you and jump when it jumps dodge it and then chase it's tail they have the same turning radius as a sarco they might bite you sometimes but you can kill them before they kill you after all I killed one with my fists, I didn't know what it was so I walked up to it and turned around and ran from me and then turned back around and charged me and killed me so I needed to get my stuff back but he was there so he jumped as soon as he did that I ran to my left and dodged it and ran around his tail punching him until he ko apparently they have low torpor
This guy is my favourite so far, right from when I first meet him, I was a noob and wandered close to a swamp well he came flying at me missed and disappeared behind me, I'm like what the neck was that, climbed a big arse rock asap and looked around, bugger came bounding back towards me and leapt straight up that rock like it was a mole hill.
Tamed the bugger and took him hunting, came across my first raptor and shat myself thinking oh rap I am screwed, nope Kappa flys over my head, collects the raptor and pile drives it into the ground several meters away, hilarious. Always fun times with Kappa around.
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
