Half of these comments make getting the eggs seem like something you can only do in mid-end game. To the point that I was scared to try it.

Here's what I did.

1. Tamed a near max level pteranadon (which for my difficulty is about 37)

2. Flew to the nearby cliffs (or whatever they're called)

3. Found a nest and waited for the parents to be far enough away.

4. Flew in, dismounted, grabbed the egg, mounted, and took off like my life depended on it.

It took more work to hatch the eggs than it did to get them. You need about 10 standing torches on a circle with the egg in the middle.

Hope this helps!
