Parasaurolophus Amphibio has some of the more interesting adaptions of all the creatures I've seen on The Island. Like all Parasaur, it has a signature ridge. Very docile at first, I've often been able to approach them without complaint. If startled, however, the Parasaur immediately runs--very far and very fast.

This species of Parasaur seems to have a previously "disproved" use for its ridge. Small openings at the top of the ridge allow it to be used as a snorkel. This is unique to Parasaurolophus Amphibio, as is their surprising speed in the water.

Domesticated

As a relatively simple creature to domesticate, Parasaurolophus Amphibio is one of the most common mounts I've seen on The Island. Its ability to run fairly fast for lengthy intervals makes it a solid mode of medium-range transportation, though it has almost no ability to defend itself or its rider.

 
— The Dossier

The Parasaurolophus or Parasaur is a medium sized herbivorous dinosaur found on the Ark. The Parasaurolophus will run from combat, and is perhaps the most suitable fast moving land mount until the Raptor can be obtained, although they should always be kept out of combat unless you upgrade damage.

Domestication

Parasaurs can be knocked out fairly easily using either ones fists or a sling shot, although they will flee quickly after the first hit and must be chased. After a Parasaur has been knocked unconscious, Narcoberries can be used to keep them in this state. They will eat other berries that are in their inventory as needed (they prefer Mejoberries), which will gradually tame them. It is suggested that one find or lure a Parasaur to a rock area as once they begin to run their poor path finding skills will enable you to kill or tame as you please.

Parasaurolophus lays eggs, which are the main ingredient in the preferred kibble of the Raptor.

Taming

Other Info

Parasaurs are generally rather slow and have little stamina once tamed, but these stats can be increased manually as a tamed Parasaur levels up. Higher level Parasaurs will generally be faster and have more stamina than lower level ones, but this varies between individuals. One main use for tamed Parasaurs is gathering berries before one tames a Triceratops, as they do not pick fiber when eating bushes.

Trivia

  • Games that were purchased within the first two weeks of launch received a special Parasaur saddle skin. The skin has a longer skirt and uses all three of the main Ark Colors.
  • The species name of the Parasaurolophus on the ARK, 'amphibio', is in reference to the species affinity for water, being often found on the coast or near rivers, as well as its proficiency at swimming.

real-life Parasaurolophus walking in all four.

  • Like many hadrosaurs, Parasaurolophus is thought to be able to walk on either two or four limbs. The animal would spend most of its time on four limbs, feeding or traveling long distances. When it needed to reach higher to forage or move with speed to escape predators, it would raise up onto its hind limbs. The Parasaurolophus in ARK, however, appears to only walk using its hind limbs.
