These little guys normally see you before you spot them. But go into an area with a good horse and when they start to circle you to try and knock you....start kicking! I actually Ko'd one at random and tamed her up. Actually a beautiful baby I named Fifi, a suitable name for an ankle-biter! XD
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
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.
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.
