The most insane thing just happened to me! I was up the entire ark night defending my dire bear while taming it with my tappy and then I had to take out an Anky that was trying to kill it and then the raptors I lost started attacking the bear then I killed one of them and then the other pounded on me and then the anky swung and hit it off! Then I used the tappy to kill it. Thanks anky lol.
Unless you have a very powerful character/mount, I would suggest to keep a good distance away from these magnificent beasts. They have a surprisingly small aggro range, but their melee damage is IMMENSE, and can kill even high level mounts with relative ease. It is honestly best to just leave them alone, as they don't even give that many resources when you harvest them, and you can easily lose an extremely valuable tame. Take it from me: I've lost two amazing wolves to these beasts, once from inexperience, once from being unable to escape due to having no stamina.
