These are really great for trips around the ark. Justgrab your bird and then use your bird to grab the para and you can detect players and their tames. I always keep one around my base set on player and tame detection.
In my opinion the best starter dinosaur you can get.
Decent movement speed with good stamina, an overall okay berry farmer with good weight and highly mobile. And this dinosaur has got very low saddle requierments and you can also shoot from it‘s back.
