Dont listen to all this crappy "trap it in a stone trap that's way to expensive"all you need is a tanky dino and tranq darts/arrows and shoot it off the back of your dino but beware they have quite a bit of torpor and run when their torpor gets high (lost about 2 high levels like that and about 170 tranqs)so make sure you get them stuck up against a cliff or something.this is how I downed a lvl 150 near base.happy taming!! (:
I use my paracer as my cargo transport dino for short to mid distance. I use it to go to the redwood nearby and gather MASSIVE amounts of metal. Just hop off, get the metal, load up the paracer, then get back home. They can defend themselves quite effectively
The only dino that'll agro an unconscious paracer is a Rex. So if those are taken care off and your cautious about not bringing in extra friend with you. You don't have to worry about other creature damaging your tame.
