The Parasaur is a great beginner mount and also can be a great choice for someone's first tame. it's long torpor countdown allows it to be tamed on the spot without too much preparation. the saddle cost and level is also low which makes it very affordable in the early game. it does gather berries and wood and thatch which allows the rider not to have to worry about constant tool repair so much. one thing it can all do very well is swim so that helps open up areas that might not have been accessible before. great low level mount!
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.
