Great starting tame for new players, and you seem to have gotten a lot of help from other Ark players on how to tame this. But I will say one thing:if you see one running around like crazy, that means a hungry predator is around! Beware!
Parasaurs wont attack you, but when you hit them they are sorta fast and you might want to bola them to kill or tame them. They collect wood,thatch and berries quite easily and are a friend to you in the harsh world of ARK. Just bola them, knock them out with a wooden club, and collect some berries while taming. And there, you have your first tame! This is a easy and beginners tame, and i usually lvl up speed and buff up their health. Up for noobs
