When I first started on the Island I was alone, cold, and naked. I was punching trees, and gathering bushes. But then I saw her. Being a noob I had no clue what it was but I wanted it! I ran right up to her and started punching, and after about a 5 minute chase she was out cold. When I tamed her I named her Luggy, and she was to be my pack mule. I’m now a level 96 and still use her 1,345 weight to carry anything I need, and gather all my resources. Moral to the story; get yourself a parasaur and upgrade weight and maybe some Stam and speed. Very useful tame in the beginning, maybe the best.
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.
