Mobile version i one hit tranq arrow with ascended bow feed with meat and berry.. But sadly no taming process so go dododex well i guess chitin is yummy for chicken afterall dead insect skin good for them first i go like weee then suddenly struck me.. How am i gonna land? 400m up on sky but after a while i getting hang of it build a flyaway/landing platfrom red wood to island while my argy follow me with tons of metal its fun xD
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.
By far, the easiest method (in my experience) for taming one of these little guys is this:
Beforehand, prepare about 50 narcotics, as it doesn't take too long to tame a lvl 150. You'll need either chitin or Pelagornis kibble. I would just use chitin since you only need about 80 or so for a lvl 150. Next, you'll want to have a bola. I would craft at least 3 in case you miss. Once it's tied up, go ahead and tranq it with tranq arrows or darts. You shouldn't need more than 20 tranqs. That's taking into account how often you may miss. But since it's tied up, you'll have far more than you need afterwards. I suggest letting it starve all the way down, and then putting in the chitin. That way your resources arent vulnerable until the last second. Wait a little bit, and you should have a lvl 150 Archa. Enjoy :) (Lower levels follow the same method with less resources, I simply used 150 as the example.)
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...
To tame this, you have to go to the forests (because that’s where they spawn) or somewhere else where they spawn, when you find one, knock it out with the method you find easiest, they will only eat kibble (simple kibble on all platforms except mobile and switch and pelagornis kibble on mobile and switch) they also eat chitin which is obtained from killing insects so go out and kill some titanorymas (or however you say it) to get some chitin. When it’s tamed, it acts as a portable hand glider and can be carried on the shoulder (I think) they are also carried by many birds, Wyverns, gigantopithecus, kaprosuchus and procoptodon (if it’s a baby). If you want more tips for taming, just go to the tame and KO section and look for a very long comment, btw sorry for it being so long.
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.
Found in the redwood forest biome mostly on The Island, can be seen majority of the time flying from tree to tree. Best tactic to taking is a decent longneck rifle and tranq darts. Shoot them after they have landed on a tree as they rest for a moment before moving again giving perfect window of opportunity. The redwood can be dangerous so bring a means of defense like spiked wall
The reason why they eat chitin is possibly a reference to the real life archaeopteryx.Since chitin is dropped by insects and bugs,The paleontologists who discovered the archa thought it ate insects, therefore having chitin as kibble to the Archeopteryx
