These guys are the best dinosaur in the game for learning what's it is like to lose a dino. The are pros at dying. Offline while a Rex walls by your pen? Dead. Run into two carnos near your favorite cactus patch? Squish. Don't have a behemoth gate just starting out in scorched earth? Enjoy the practice of tribe log analysis.
These guys are great for your first tame on scorched earth. Because if you put Cactus sap in them you will be able to drink water and they are great for gathering berries and cactus sap so this should be your first tame in scorched earth definitely
The morrelatops should be one of your first tames on Scorched Earth. They are excellent at gathering berries which will make taming higher level dinos easier, and they can hold water so if you live far away from a water vein or a lake you won't dehydrate.
Good at harvesting berries, WOOD, thatch and cactus sap. To harvest wood, you need to look for the bushes that look like tiny pine trees. Attack those and you will get about 80-120 wood. Hardly on par with a beaver but much better than looking for trees in the desert.
It can easily kill carnos, sabers and wolves of a lower level in a 1 on 1 as the primary attack has a knock back effect, similar to a trike in the island. The secondary attack is a stomp with an AoE effect. They have decent health and good carry weight and you can drink water from their hump. To fill the water, take it to a well, use carriables or harvest cacti with it.
