I love these guys. Don't think of them as standard battle mounts. I use mine to have a really fun time tracking and hunting down creatures in the Ragnarok canyon. Because you can shoot from it's saddle, you can wait to ambush potentially dangerous creatures from the walls and bridges. By far my favorite hunting mount.
Once tamed they are actually okay at swimming and excellent guard animals for if you're base gets raided just put them on the ceiling and when someone breaks in it drops on them and gives them rabies which will generally kill them quickly
I recommend taming these for stealing wyvern eggs they can climb walls wich the wyvern nest whole things are in the wall make sure you have a lot of stamina or else you will fall into lava a die instantly.
These things can stay hooked to any surface even when unmounted. If you live in a cave or wanna set an ambush leave them hooked to the cave entrance ceiling on agressive and taunt your enemies to follow you into the cave.
They'll shit their pants trust me...
This gravity-defying lizard has a high HP count, over the top stamina and descent weight, but don't count on its melee attacks: To balance the poisonous bite, the damage itself is as low as that of a raptor and the attack speed is is extremely slow. Their speed is also not what you would expect, but they have just the enough amount to rapidly climb walls.
Best used with high damaging portable firearms, such as Pump-Action Shotguns, Assault Rifles and Fabricated Sniper Rifles.
