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
It’s a lot easier to use a bola when taking than just going for it. One buck with an equus also knocks it out. Make sure to be certain something is a micro raptor before killing it, cause these things are rare and look virtually the same
On mobile next to impossible to tame the normal way, I just tamed one by grabbing it from the top of a tree and bringing it very far away from redwoods, then tranq it then tame it. Lots of work, but I love them so it’s worth it.
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.
These little tree hugging pigeons can apparently teleport on mobile,don’t try killing them and taking their implant,grabbing them with an argy also won’t work,I still haven’t tamed one because of this...
1. kill like 2 or 3 trilobite
2. Use hatchet to farm trilobite
3. Find one in red wood area then lure it out because come on, it’s red wood area, unless you wanna die lure it out.
4. Bola it
5. Just use a club and beat it harder than I beat my meat
6. Give chitin
7. Enjoy your living parachute
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.
