10 Doedicurus

The darn titanoboas keep killing them before I get the chance to tame one

The Contenders

11 Beezelbufo

This should be higher up. It's awesome. - PBoi_N_J

They are cool but the Dire wolf gathers way more chitin that's why he's down here. - Katekat123

Gathers chitin can be used for cementing paste. - Katekat123

Who put beelzebufo down here? I personallyu think it should be higher up. it can craft cementing paste just from killing bugs!

12 Reaper King

It's a true Jack of all Trades. It can jump extremely far and high meaning it can get from point A to point B very fast. It's damage and stamina is higher than the Giga's and when it dies it leaves it's acid blood to deal high damage over time meaning it's great for PvP. It can gather pretty much any resource because it doesn't have an oxygen bar and it has super high health. And when it is gestating you can go out and kill a bunch of animals and have it at a super high level early on. It is the BEST CREATURE IN THE GAME!

It's the Giga on an adrenaline rush.

13 Wyvern

Gathers meat, but mostly for PVP - Katekat123

14 Allosaurus Allosaurus Allosaurus is a genus of large theropod dinosaur that lived 155 to 150 million years ago during the late Jurassic period.
