For full Deinonychus taming details, get the taming calculator app.
The Deinonychus can only be tamed by raising it from an egg; it must be raised from eggs. It can only be found in the Valguero map. Have a good strategy on obtaining Deinonychus eggs and raising them? Share it as a taming tip!
It's like a big microraptor, but instead of knocking you off your mount, it latches to your creature and tears it a new asshole.
You also get them by kidnapping their unborn children and raising them, like wyverns and rockdrakes.
You can't tame these guys by knocking them out. Instead, you need to steal their fertilised eggs (just like wyverns and rock drakes), hatch them and raise them, just a bit harder than knocking them out. The eggs can, of course, be found in their nests and do be careful while trying to steal one as the Deinonychus is very territorial. Hope this helps :)
Here's how to steal one early game: If you spawn in at chalk hills 3 and spawn next to a pond walk opposite to the pond. There are some nests right there. Snatch one quickly and run off the cliff next to the pond. Be careful and make sure to fall into the water. From there make a left and you should get to a beach area. From there it should be easy to find your base.
Dododex should add locations of all eggs, such as Wyverns, Rock Drakes and the new fluffy Raptors.
Just my thoughts.
Also do not pet the fluffy Raptors, tried it and lost my hand, my friend and a dodo.
The Deinonychus is an agile dino with sharp claws that can pounce and feed on its victim. The Deinonychus can also climb up walls by jumping. This creature is able to climb by jumping from wall to wall. It is very territorial around its nest.
