A tip for beginners:
If you attack these guys with your dinosaur be warned...
Even during riding your Mount, they will kill you first, not your dinosaur…
And they do tons of damage and are not that easy to hit with smaller dinosaurs (small hitbox)
Try to avoid them early game
I have seen people saying that small packs of these sky chickens can kill everything. Well, I seen a lvl five rex send at least 7 flying, and a well leveled, tamed dire wolf can Wreck these wimps as long as you’re riding it. The reason they’re so hard to kill for wild creatures is that they run around trying to chase it. So, if you ever run into a small pack of these guys, and don’t wanna tame ALL of them, then a dire wolf, raptor, argent or Sabre (or anything with low stamina drain, or A LOT of stam) with a few levels in health and Melee is a good choice for killing off the bolaed dimorphs comrades. Key point, don’t let your tames fight these guys without you on their saddles.
If they attack you while your mount depending on what the animal it is, they will counter attack YOU not your mount. I hope you respawn close but you'll find the animals ok unless something else came along.
These guys can be hard to fight not because they do massive emounts of damage but because they are hard to hit, I had just tamed a carbonymes when I decided to hit on of these guys the murderd my carbonymes and it couldn’t even hit it
Be careful these things are strong you can find them mostly every were in the forest biomes and beaches if you acedentaly hit them thy will kill you I had raptor named bronze and I acedentaly punched Therese guy luckily bronze was there he killed them even though I could just kill it my self one thing you need remberis if you hit these guys and they run away when they are low health they will come back to kill you until your dead or there dead
I went to raid a base with 4 buddies, a rex, 3 carnos, and a bronto with a platform saddle and cannons. All we heard was a whistle and i swear about 50 of these little devil's swarmed the whole group, killing everyone in the group and one carno, the turrets shredded everything else, but the rex must have ran off and we never got a death message so its still out there in the jungle.
When in areas that have many dimorphadon remember to be careful and not to hit one by accident when fighting other creatures as you can easily be overwhelmed.your mount will not be able to save you as they deal damage directly to the rider.
