Most people don’t seem to know this, but they can be found in large numbers in the snow area on the island. Personally, I was at the area where it was ice turning to regular grass, and I saw around 6 just walking around there, but sadly I couldn’t harvest them because there was also a pack of rexes and carnos, and it wouldn’t be worth it. -Zakiel
When I was on like level 20 in single player i used to find these guys everywhere, and i thought they were only useful for a handful of chitin. Now I’m on level 88 and i actually NEED black and silicia pearls and oil I haven’t seen one in months.
On the left side of the island map, there is a bit that looks a bit like a crooked finger. First of all, you can wall off the part that connects it to the rest of the island and turn the entire finger into your base. It is extremely safe and the only predators there are ichthyornises and dilos. Second of all, at the part where it connects to the rest of the island, there is a small pond surrounded by rocks and in that pond a ton of trilobites spawn. I made my base on this finger and made a chitin farm with the pond. Do with this knowledge what you will.
These are tameable but not breedable. To tame, put down a fish basket by it and capture it. Then go to your base and put the basket on your hotbar then click it. It will be on your floor and friendly. Since they aren’t breedable, they are a bit useless but that’s how you tame them.
