The first thing I saw on valgero was this floof ball. And I'm yelling and crying at wildcard bc I don't want to punch it to tame is so cuteee. So I put it in a thatch trap and a looOoooong time later in the game I came back with a ptera to see it still in the trap. I carry with it still being wild. To this day I have never punched a jerboa. Only keeping them in safe little houses.
On mobile in iland you have to go into dungeons to find then good thing about that is that if you get the implant (you have to kill them T-T) revive them with the implant at the obelisk or a revive platform get boi toxin or any narcotics but i suggest boi toxin if its a high level you can use tranq arrows (only if it can handle a few shots or it will die) feed it mejo berrys or rockarrots and tame a trike before taming this guy cause you need him the get the berrys and crops and make a saddle for the trike and that's it i think thanks for taking your time to read this i am happy if this helped
