Gathers wood fast and carries it at 1/5 weight stone is 1/2. Weak on the sides so if you really like this dino to patrol keep another dino with it to aid. Excellent at killing mantis to gathering organic polymer and chitin.
If you are going to tame one of these with no dinos, be sure to upgrade your movement speed and get tranqs. When you see it whip its tail forwards move to the right you will dodge the shots. This worked for me.
I have 12 on platforms 4 pillars high scattered around my base. I have an issuse with dino spawns in the base. So they act as a long range needle launcher. Weigh down with sand because its weight isnt affected by the dragons buff. Set all to long range aggressive and u have a protected base. Add a few plant X for added assurance. I no longer have spawn problems. Found a ready to tame terror bird today too pretty neat.
No longer carries wood at 1/5 weight, now carries at 1/2 but can now be carried by argentavis and can farm wood similar to farming metal with an argentavis and anky, upgrade melee damage to get the most wood possible.
Can be used to help tame large creatures. If you pull out your crossbow or longneck while riding it you can shoot your weapon and its tail needles at the same time allowing you to tank the creature and save tranqs. You would need to level health and melee though.
