Are you new to ark? If you are, you should tame one of these. You need to learn the engram Bola. Craft it, then go look for the parasaur you want. Throw it at the parasaur and punch it. Then, put berry’s it it’s inventory and you have yourself a parasaur. They are a good way of defending you from compys and dilos, they are quite strong and you can learn there saddle engram at only level 10. They are very good at harvesting thatch from trees and berry’s from bushes too.
Are you a new Ark player? A Tipp for you. He is fast... faster than you. The best way is craft Bola and Bola the Parasaur. Knock out and feed it with Berries. Dont miss nacoberries... Good you tamed it! Craft a Parasaur saddle and ride it! Good luck.
The best way to tame this guy is to craft a bola and throw it, (bola opens at lvl7) and it should be able to hold it until you knock it out. Feed with berries such as mejoberry and don't forget narcoberries if you dont have much in inventory, you need to keep it sleeping. And make sure to KEEP OTHER PETS AWAY, during the process! They may get in your way.
After that you can saddle it at lvl10. And its a good defense against dilophosaurs, bugs and other small dangers. :)
I believe this is the first Dino I ever tamed, and I still like to keep one around. They’re great berry harvesters and their saddles are easy to make. Literally just run one into some rocks and they’re knocked out easily.
