If you can tame one, do it, but don't waste your time on a low level. Tame a lvl 135+. My tribe leader tamed a 150 male and there's just no contest. It doesn't have super high weight for wood gathering, though. For that, I recommend apprentice chainsaw or better with a thorny or beaver with you to reduce weight.
If this dino spawns near your base and you are low and mobile player then just do one thing. Put your all stuff in your base and go near the dino then run in opposite side of your base and lead him to far away from your home before he destroy all you have even your pets. just don't uninstall the game bcoz of this😂
I just tamed a lvl 20 theri and it took 1hr and 200 narcotics. This thing was a pain in the bootycheeks to tame but well worth it. It gathers a crap tone of berries, rare flowers, rare mushrooms, and also a good amount of thatch/wood. I recommend having around 50-70 tranq darts if you want to knock out a high lvl theri.
Use stone building 4 foundations with door frames all around perimeter and 2 walls high. On outside place stairs on one side- this will be the side it chases u up. Once it’s in the trap knock it out with tranq arrows.
Recommend have berry gatherer with u- need A LOT of narco.
