This is the most underrated tame on ark for any level player. Extremely fast in air. High jumper. Can carry and raise babies. Can stay underwater without air AND is fast in water. Can pump weight for fast uhaul tame. Can pump stamina for a scout tame. Can quickly get out of danger. Semi hover/parachute drop ability for looking at things from high up. All in all it’s honestly OP and reallly slept on.
There’s a reason to why these can glide better than rock drakes. I’m an expert on squirrels myself and know Flying squirrels irl live in North America mainly and can glide 150 feet to even 500. They don’t fly, they glide. They glide by using the flaps of skin stretching between their legs and hands to catch the air. The flaps of skin are called Patagium. They use their tail to be a rudder to steer in the air to escape predators and have large eyes to see at night as they are nocturnal. Also, a prehistoric Flying squirrel named Maio patagium is a spitting image of a flying squirrel we have today. As both sail through the sky’s one in the Jurassic and one in the night of North America. Also, I believe a rock drake would be heavier than a flying squirrel. Anyways I didn’t just now search this up. I know TONS about squirrels and dinosaurs. Hehe not to brag or anything! So to you surprised about maewings flying better, id say it’s because of the reasons above. Ok that’s your daily brain pop! Phew sorry bout my info spree. I like squirrels and dinosaurs. “WE GET IT!”
My friend and I were in different tribes in smalls and he threw out his baby drake while I was on a maewing. I clicked the right joystick and boom it stole them and put them into my tribe and it got imprinted as mine even though he had imprinted them before
