These things are OP! If you tame a high level one they make an amazing shoulder pet (surpassed only by ferox I would say). Mine does like 250 dmg a bite and it works well if you have an aviary of them. If this helps, please up!!
These guys are literally one of the best early game tames. They don't have much health, but they do a lot of damage for a creature their size. It's also hard for baddies to get to them cuz they're small and they fly. All you have to do is find one crawling, (it's really hard to get one that's flying) and bola it, next knock it out with a club, then give it some meat and wait. You might need some narcoberries cause they don't stay unconscious for long.
This is just a tip for a general gameplay strat- not sure where to put general gamepkay stuff like this...sorry. Anyway, putting all your tames that stay at your base on Neutral is *the* way to do it. This way, they won't get into unnecessary fights, but if an arse of a dino decides to say an unwelcomed "Hello. It's me..." then they can at least defend them AND your base. Neutral puts your dinos on alert mode so that even if a wild dino starts attacking even your fence post, your dinos will whip into action and defend the base. Also, while out on tames, neutral mode allows your dino to protect itself and you while you throw it that damn kibble in a whirlwind of panick. *Literally* the best mode to be on at all times (of course, it'll work as well as per what lvl your dino friends are, but they'll still put up a valiant fight regardless!).
Grab a tribe mate, bola it then knock it out and make sure to have your tribe mate watch your back, feed it meet and watch its torpor, now that you have one upgrade melee damage and health, and know you have an unstoppable killing machine.
