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...
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.
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
If you're having trouble finding one, get on your bird and go to about halfway up a redwood tree. They like to climb trees and then glide from tree to tree so your chances of finding one in the trees are a lot greater. I found a group of five once in the trees. However, they will glitch when being grabbed from a tree. It might not always be in your birds talons... Anyway, if on the ground, bola it (without scaring it away like a tapejara) and tranq it. It has a low health pool though, so try to watch your arrows.
