The dododex says that this dino isn't very good at harvesting thatch, but I beg to differ. As it is one of the best thatch gatherers in the game, especially in scorched earth. Just because of its speed, maneuverability, weight stat and it can't "accidentally" harvest any bushes. It is actually better than using a wyvern, I have tested them both and got a full large storage chest of thatch within 10 to 15 minutes, maybe less. The wyvern was too fiddly.(moose is definitely better on the island map though)
I find it useful if you pump nothing but weight and then harvest metal with it, just put yourself in the pouch and have a friend walk up to metal nodes, then you can harvest metal without even leaving the pouch!
Had one of these in a multi server, named him Steve Irwin. One of the best transport tames ingame period, got around 30 levels because of him. I’ve killed rexes and broncos with this thing. Knockback is amazing, and can easily run away from a fight if things go wrong. Sadly, game crashed in a cave and he passed away. Rest In Peace, Steve Irwin.
