If you level them up right then you can take on a level 30 carbo with a level 17 pteranadon just did it and percy was leveled up and another good way to level them up is finding explorer's notes with it. U p So people know.
I once had a pteranodon. His name was pterabyte and I really loved him. He had so good stamina, he could sprint fly all the way from herbivore Island to the snow biom. He saved me from an allosaurusgang, 3 rexs and 1 yuti and 2 alpha Raptors. I fought a giga with him and his brother (we won). He could kill a carno with 1 bite and tanked up to 5000 damage for me. But then I decided to set him free so he could live by his own. I gave him enough food to feed him and set him on wandering. I saw how he flew away into the sunset. And sometimes when I go to the vulcano I see him, how he flys around. It always warms my heart to see him happy.
I had a Pteranodon names Pops, Pops and I were hunting spinos. A spino broke out of the trap and Pops tanked the spino and fought back, giving me time to escape. Pops is honored by our whole tribe, Pops had a son named Pops Jr. who lives to this day. We also have another Pteranodon named RIP Pops. Pops’s legacy is carried on by the whole tribe and our tames. Pops will never be forgotten.#RIP Pops
My friend and I joined the same server. She was completely new, and I had well over 200 hours. After a few unlucky days, I found a mating pair of these! Of course, I tamed them up and brought them home.
A few days later, I found an Alpha Rex and my pteranodon had well over 1k stamina; her’s had about 700.
I say, “hey, let’s kill this Alpha Rex!”
Trusting me because I was experienced, she agreed.
“It’s near a high cliff—we’ll be fine.” I said, little did I know that we wouldn’t be fine.
A carno ambushed us an knocked us off, right onto the Alpha Rex. I spammed whistle for my pteranodon to follow, but she wouldn’t. She wouldn’t come.
Instead, she got murdered by the carno. I was chased by the dinosaurs in the area and screamed many times when I heard a Rex roar.
The moral of the story is.. don’t go too high over your head because you’ve done something before, an experience is always going to be slightly different than before.
Here's a crazy story for anyone who's interested. I was playing on single player/non-dedicated and tamed my first pteranodon, named it Swoop (as in the transformer), made a saddle for him, and took him out for a test flight. As we were flying, I tried to figure out how to open his inventory while riding him and accidentally jumped off. I died and tried to find him, lost 3 other tames trying to save him and gave up after that. A few months later I am with my argentavis and a friend who was also riding one and found Swoop alive. Thanks to playing on single player, he never rendered in and thus was safe from starving or being attacked. Took him home and he is still alive today.
I had a female pteranodon named Mai. One time we were flying and I landed not seeing a Chalotherium right next to me. Mai was my first pteranodon ever so now I kill every one of those drunk cow looking bastards
