These guys are amazing when tamed. Low levels may not be able to carry you, so try waiting for it to level up and upgrade weight or drop items in your inventory. The barrel roll attack is super good. A low level pteranodon can kill a lot of dodos in a single barrel roll. Now I know why the devs made the saddle A high lvl bc its so good. A must tame and it is totally worth waiting for to get the saddle.
How to do barrel roll on mobile: Go to settings and then go to controls then either go to left multi tap or right multi tap. Then select Reload/Alt attack2. When you are done, go and press on your screen twice on either left or ritght side. And you pteranodon can now do a barrel roll! Disclaimer:wastes stamina alot so be careful. Like so newbies see this!
My Pteranodon, Shan. Absolute legend. True trooper. Top dog. Killed level 139 Spino on his own. Only level 92. Killed 20 Therizinos. 5 Carnos, 19 Direbears. 31 Raptors, 2 griffins and one Argentavis including a Megalodon that poked its tail up. Can fly from East to west without landing for stamina once. Wiped out a whole crew of boas with 5 barrel rolls. Rescued my Dilophosaurs more than twice. Very useful Pteranodon.
