I prefer using this for the lava cave instead of the bary because first:it is smaller.Second:lesser chances of getting pushed off.Third:bary can easily fall off due to its size.I have done the lava cave before with a bary but it died on the way with me because of a stupid bat pushing me off.I used saber and my rounds were successful. In my opinion.
You find these just about everywhere. Mostly in the tundra in small 2-3 packs. However, you may also find packs of them in the redwood mountains or large grass plains, and of course on carnivore island.
I just about had my Griffin Tamed, then this guy came over Lvl 177 killed me and my Griffin. Rip in the chat. Next time if you see one run away or bola in tame it kill it or run away. Very fast. 130 movement speed at least. Likes for the Griffin!!!😭😭😭
