Very good for early game harvesting and can hold its own against small predators eg Dilos and Piranhas. Can be hard or easy to tame depending on the taming speed multiplier. Not much utility outside of early game.
This guy is my favorite dino to start. It can farm LOTS of fiber, chitin, berries, rare mushrooms, rare flowers, polymer, etc. And it has a considerably good melee and health. But people don't see its value just because its a big coward iguana... Lmao. But for real, they're really one of the best dinos to get at the beginning, if not the best. Give this an up to let people know.
An easy mode to start gathering low level ressources and with the gather leveling you can
Specialize them in usefull ressource gathering like organic polymer, rare flower, rare mushroom, leech blood, superior meat, superior fish meat and resine making them the best gatherer of those ressources and a reduct weight for those ressources (personaly i just never made crafted polymer i just had a ton of organic polymer with a moshop and ready to go)
