Parasaurs are a great substitute to a trike in case your inpatient or don’t have the right tools. Parasaurs have a good weight, and they are key to picking berries before your able to get a trike. Parasaurs take about 4 - 6 bushes to get 100 berries of one type, which is very good for low levels. They also work as an early mount for getting around before you can tame a raptor. I recommend gaming between Lvl 10 - 30, after lvl 30 the only good thing parasaurs are good for are berries.
The parasuar has had its base damage buffed to 12, base weight buffed to 480, and it’s wild weight gain was raised to 9.6 per level. This makes parasaurs carry only slightly less weight than a mammoth. Parasaurs have had a huge buff.
This guys is one of if not the best starter tamed. He can scare off smaller Dino's, such as raptors, and he can detect players, takes, hidden purlovias, reapers, and rock elementals, and, this guys has some RIDICULOUS weight. I mean, a level five that I tamed cause I was lazy had 625 FREAKING WEIGHT! The only downside is they are pretty weak if they get attacked.
