Let me tell you something. Parasaurs are very smart and even though they are week they NEVER GIVE UP. WHY? It's because I have story with my parasaur. So in the wild I was taking a parasaur and in the wild they are not smart and do GIVE up. One hit on it, and the parasaur goes coocoo crashing into rocks and ALWAYS running to dangerous places. AND this was my first time playing ARK and I was so happy I tamed one(named him Pary) and so 9 seconds later a dilophosaur appeared! For me that was a big deal cause it was my first time playing so it killed me. I was thinking it will be over cause its night, my parasaur is probably gonna die and I lost all my stuff. So I decided to just carry on. So the next day, I wanted to look for some hide. Then I saw a parasaur on the beach and I'm happy that there is hide si right when I'm about to throw the spear at its head. I NOTICED IT WAS PARRY AND HE WAS CARRYING ALL MY STUFF! That's when I started to call every parasaur-Parry! For what he did!-Sasha
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.
