Use bolas to stop these if you or your Dino is slowed by their attack. You can also run in water for safety because these cannot attack in water. 50% reduced weight for basically every important resource so these make great pack mules. These can climb across zip lines, press jump while looking at one (crosshaie should come up). These also jump high vertically unlike most mammals that usually jump forward, and these take extremely reduced fall damage! Great all around dinos with many uses!
Even just two of these guys can kill a karkinos, I was out on RageElixir (my ravager pack alpha) and a karkinos was blocking our way home. I have all my followers on attack my target and went after it, two of my pack members got stuck but RageElixir and one of the males went ham on the karkinos and killed it. Can’t complain about free polymer
Gathers a lot of oil from tek dinosaurs - usually somewhere between 30-50, which is great way how to get oil in abberration! Also good for gathering the remaining resources from teks and org.polymer from karkinos.
