Wait till the ptery lands and bola it. Then shoot the ptery in the head with tranqs spread out 5 seconds apart (Mastercraft crossbow and above should only take 1 shot to the head). Build a spiked wall cage around the ptery (5 spiked walls will be enough). If you're on a mount and using kibble you can just park the mount in the cage and sit in the walls with it until it tames. Safest way to tame pterys without having to worry about wild dinos. Give it a try for yourself; good luck!
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
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!
How to tame you will need a bola,a wooden bat any type of meat and bio toxin/narcotics when it’s on the ground throw the bola at it and hit it with your bat now when it’s unconscious feed it your meat and wait a little then if it’s almost conscious feed it your bio toxin/narcotics you need to kill Cnidarias for bio toxin and you will need the mortar and pestle to get the narcotics unlocked now look at your area to see if there are any carnivores around if there is kill them now you have a pterodon
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
How to tame! First lure jellyfish to land for free narcotics find a pteranodon and Bola it punch it until is knocked out then feed it meat if it's about to wake up give it the jellyfish narcotics that's how u tame a pteranoson!
