They run away fast; bola quickly. Gillie suit. Just got a mating pair gonna see what they do. Quote from Ark Wiki:: "Tamed animals retain their timid nature and lack any sort of attacking ability, even when set on aggressive, and will only eat Chitin."
And yes they only eat chitin. But very useful as you can use them for gliding. Pretty cute and fun.
It is in my opinion cause it’s a very easy tame and good glider. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME GETTING A PARACHUTE! These are very fun! However getting down from one is difficult,But otherwise get one very easy. Steps below
1. Get a bow and a tranq arrow
2. Get 1 narcotic 1-5 for levels
3. Kill a scorpion and get the chitin
4. Knock out and feed chitin
5. You have a living parachute
So now you what good it is, it has downsides as well:
Very hard to get down.
The place it is located is very hard and dangerous.
BUT. They can collect sap and other stuff.
Is it worth it? YES IT IS!
I forgot to mention this but it is found in the redwoods.
Hi there! Just wanted to share a quick tip for mobile players!
So basically these birbs are kinda bugged on mobile so you can't shoot at them with tranqs whenever they're on trees. So I suggest y'all to simply wait for them to get on land and then shoot them (One tranq dart is enough, normally), or you can just bola one then shoot it. Just keep in mind that you just CAN'T shoot them while they're on trees.
Thanks for reading, and I hope you've found my tip useful!
I see the Otter God, the Jerboa King and the Defender of Bulbdogs made an early move. Now I the Archaeopteryx Lord shall rise. If any one of you guys kill these birbs I will look for you and feed your soul to the ravenous birbs I own. So if you see one my birbs Naruto running away for you, DO NOT kill it instead be its friend, they are a great parachute and they are wholesome creatures to begin with. So you have be warned by the Archaeopteryx Lord...
When taming on mobile, bring more tranqs than you need. Their hitbox while on the trees is very difficult to hit and they are too small to reliably hit while they are flying. Try to hit them while they are on the ground. They have a low torpor so not many tranqs needed but it drops quickly.
They are very fast and will only eat chitin. They run away when they see you or you tranq them. Breeding takes chitin too so have lots of chitin. They hide in trees and I have only seen females so Esther males are rare or I’m very bad at finding them
