ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
When knocking out a ptera, make sure to use a crossbow with tranqs and shoot it in the head. Just don't get too close while shooting because if you do, you will either kill it or make its health low which won't give it a good taming effectiveness.

HOW TO TAME EASY!
- craft bola
- find pteranodon
- bola pteranodon
- knock out either using fist, sling shot, bat, or some sorta tranq thing (whatever works for you)
- feed meat (recommend using soothing balm before feeding meat)
- have fun with your pteranodon!
Lvl up their stamina to like 700.0 then start leveling up their weight cause the lighter the weight is the faster it flies and if YOUR weight is about half full then the pteranodon will either be encumbered or very close to it

Your Pteranodon Taming Pocket Guide
Let's face it, they're the first flyer you tamed. High levels are the best to tame, as their stamina stat is trash and you can use the highest level of stamina you can get without leveling up. Might (or might not) be replaced by an Argy or Griffin (for fancy people).
Super easy tames, a simple bola and tranq. Because of their tiny health pool I'd recommend tranq arrows and not a club or slingshot because, chances are, you'll just kill it before you knock it out. If you find a max level try to use kibble of raw prime, but normal meat works just as well. Even the lowest levels need a few narcotics, so bring some along no matter what level you're going after.
Saddling and stats-
Saddle requires fibre and hide (I think) as well as 75 keratin. Make sure to get the keratin before you can unlock the saddle. I know from personal experience that it sucks to unlock the saddle just to wait 10 in-game days for a turtle to spawn -_-
As for stats, they aren't too good. Low heath and stamina, although I personally only put points in stamina.
Hope this helped at least one person. If you liked or found this helpful, share it with friends!
If you find a level 5 one of these and gonna tame make sure you have 2 prime meat if it's normal all settings is normal and prime meat gives it 50% taming thing please up this so people who want this can see it
UP THIS NEEDS TO BE HEARD
ON MOBILE THEY SOUND LIKE COELACANTHS
When taming a high level Pteranodon, always starve tame it that way you don't waste/lose your kibble if somebody/something hits/kills it.
Admit it, this is the 1st flyer you first tamed
the best way to tame these guys is with dodo kibble . Most people would say tame them using prime meat but don’t listen to them because with prime meat it take a long to tame so I suggest dodo kibble it’s not that that expensive to make . And it take about 5-8 second to tame if you don’t believe me then go and experiment . Then leave a like
Tame a level 100+ and you got yourself a bird that can kill alphas. (As long as you get the melee damage high)
Ight so find one,shoot it with a tranq the pump narcotics into it,some raw meat,if torpor is low,pump some narcotics,go back and make more,pump more narcotics in(also I'd recommend making the saddle first,already went through that hell)and let it tame,it will take a while,but it'll. Be worth it,they can fly so fast of ya always upgrade movement speed,weight,and stam.
