If you are a new player, try not to provoke them. I have ended up hitting trikes when using a hatchet or pickaxe on resources and ended up dead because of it. If you attack it, it will constantly try to make sure its head is facing you, preventing you from doing significant damage. It's best to use a bulky mount or tranq arrows to kill it, but if you are looking for keratin, try carbonemys instead. They are far easier to kill.
That thing is a beast at early game with enough level (50-80) it can easily take out raptors,carnos,alpha raptors and even rexes (lvl30-45), because of the high health and the OP knockback, if you’re hitting at the exact right time raptors won’t even hit you they just can’t . Be careful when facing theris tho that could end pretty bad for you and your trike
I was walking until I saw a trike until I hit it and I forgot there was a trike near him and I runned and died over and over so I decided to realese my tames and 2v5 it we lost. My parasaur only survive Rip 4 tames:(
