When playing on the Center, be warned that they are very DIFFICULT to find because they hide in the bushes. If you aren't careful, you'll probably get lost and die by the Carnos and Terror Birds that lurk in the Redwoods.
They’re very skittish and hard to hit. And for some reason on ark mobile they disappear once they hit the ground. At least that’s how it is on the server I play on. It’s also how I lost most of my toxicant arrows trying to hit one.
Usually found in and around the redwood forests, these little guys can be used as parachutes if you fall from a tame/ structure and save you dying. You will probably need a bola because although a passive creature it will fly to the nearest tree and latch on if you get too close
These creatures happen to be one of the best ways to get around, if you know how to use them. Have an ally pick you up with an Argy whilst you are holding one, have them fly up a decent height, and have them let go. You will literally be able to do laps around the map's edges without touching the ground if you know what you're doing! (Some training is required, so that you don't, say, accidentally throw it mid-air.)
Most people think this chicken is useless but you can use the archaeopteryx to fly for an unlimited amount of time! Just have an argy (or any other flying creature) on follow with a low following distance and when it is low on stamina drop from your bird and go back on it after a few seconds.... your bird is now full of stamina!
