Are strong in packs, do a bleed effect and can latch onto surfaces, it is tamed by stealing its eggs and raising them, it can take 9 to 10 standing torches. Eggs are found in the whites cliffs area ONLY on the valguero map. Like if helpful
To steal eggs easy just take a high lvl argent and hang out with a spyglass on a high cliff which is inaccessible by most or all threats. Scout out nests with your spyglass and wait for the right moment (right moment being when the deinonychus are busy attacking something larger/something that will take a bit to kill) and swoop down, hop off your bird, snatch the egg, and fly as fast as you can back to your safe spot. You CAN NOT outrun these things with land mounts (unless you leveled the crap out of it's movement speed) so a flyer with high stamina and decent health and damage is the way to go. I got 8 eggs in about 20 mins using this strat. To hatch I built a stone room and placed 5 stone fireplaces inside.
People on here are giving the most difficult tips to get the eggs. Just fly down there. Hop off when non is too close. Grab the egg. Fly away. It's as simple as that. No need for an argentavis with bait
You can't tame these guys by knocking them out. Instead, you need to steal their fertilised eggs (just like wyverns and rock drakes), hatch them and raise them, just a bit harder than knocking them out. The eggs can, of course, be found in their nests and do be careful while trying to steal one as the Deinonychus is very territorial. Hope this helps :)
Here's how to steal one early game: If you spawn in at chalk hills 3 and spawn next to a pond walk opposite to the pond. There are some nests right there. Snatch one quickly and run off the cliff next to the pond. Be careful and make sure to fall into the water. From there make a left and you should get to a beach area. From there it should be easy to find your base.
1. Tame a kangaroos 2. Have a tribe mate with a whip in the pouch 3. Quickly jump on a nest and have your tribe mate whip the egg into his inventory 4. Jump away! No one has to dismount so there’s basically no risk
