Extremely difficult to tame. Best options are to bola it, and then use a longneck rifle with tranq darts. Otherwise trying to get it to fly into the side of a cliff and get stuff is the other option for a solo tame.
My dudes I recomend Gillette suit,bola then tranq it. if u have access to allow kibble THEN USE IT! They love allo kibble.if u don't have allo kibble just use prime meat and make sure u have a lot of narcotics at least 50 or 100
just a general tip . In ark mobile, i discoverd that sleeping then knocking will cause more hunger then just knocking and waiting or knocking then sleeping. This is how I got my Anklyo and tapejara, Gallimims’ Therizinosaurus etc...
If your in ark mobile, and you have access to potent dust and dodo feathers, craft some dodo arrows and shoot the particular tapejara your looking for with the dodo arrow to activate agro on it and lure them. If your in normal ark (pc, ps4 or xbox) use rare flowers to lure it into a trap.
Since the new update, rare flowers make dinos aggro on to you, you can use this on a tapejara and it will follow you to a trap you've built. Just remember that each flower gives only 10 seconds of that debuff so if the bird is far away from your trap, you have to use it frequently while coming back. Also, if you need it to follow you after you've gotten off your dino, you need to eat another rare flower so that it can agro on to you once again.
The Tapejara is a versatile and highly maneuverable pterosaur known for its three-person saddle. While it may not have as much stamina and weight carrying capacity as other creatures, it has unique benefits in combat. The Tapejara can land on trees and other vertical surfaces, allowing both the pilot and the passengers to use weapons. Its rudder-like fin make it one of the few flying creatures able to hover and strafe side-to-side.
