Many confuse these with the archaeopteryx. The micro raptors have singular head crests, whereas the archaeopteryx only have head feathers. The micro also has a flat cluster of feathers on the end of its tail, archaes have feathers along each side instead of at the end.
Get off of your tame with a bola ready, and once it runs at you, bola it and knock it out. One rare flower will tame nearly any level with no narcotics, but anything else will require some maintenance
To tame a micro raptor won't easy because they stun u And can kill you. To tame one you'll need bolas and tranq arrows or a wooden club and some narcotics or narcoberries. First find one in the redwoods and get stunned by one but be careful of other dangerous dinos. And knock it out with tranq arrows and feed it the amount of meat the dododex says to give it to tame.
Super easy to get these on genesis. Just slither around the arctic on a basilisk, give it a bite or two while it's circling you to KO, then feed a rare flower. If you can't find any flowers in the bushes it's easy to just buy one from the HLNA shop.
I hear on standard servers it only takes 1 rare flower to tame a 150. I can confirm it does at 2.5 (5x old rates) rates at least. Also they look almost identical to Archas almost, especially at a distance or while mounted.
They're super cute! They may be hard to find as they're small and blend in well with the redwood forest. I recommend riding a dino and when you get attacked whistle passive tame so your dino doesn't kill it. Then when you become conscious again bola it and use tranq arrows. Definitely use mushrooms or flowers as it's a super fast tame! They're great for defense as they can knock people off their dinos.
