This is basically an upgraded raptor. You can use them to collect meat, travel, and cave exploration. They're great for taming other dinos. Bring them along when you tame other dinosaurs so you can easily kill anything that tries to attack you or your taming dino.
It is a very fast mount, especially when you sprint + jump. It is stronger than a raptor, weaker than a carno(in the wild). Tamed if you level it up enough it can even take on a rex. It harvests a lot of chitin and hide, even more than it harvests meat. Perfect creature to cave with.
Simply amazing at collecting hide and chitin. You can easily get 50-60 chitin per scorpion kill. Hide numbers run up quick too. Within minutes you'll be sitting at around a 1000 hide. They're quicker than the raptor Imo and pack a much harder punch. They do lack higher defense like other big dinos, but don't be fooled by their size. These guys are nasty. I recommend getting health above 1800. Stamina around 800-100, movement speed 130+, and melee around 250-300%. If you can achieve this, you'll have an exceptional utility hunter.
