Eat rare flowers (have armor on cuz you're going to get hit) fly,ride or run to a safe location and bola it while it tries to attack you. Easiest way to tame a ptera and it won't get hit so you can kibble tame and not worry about it getting hit.
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!
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
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
To tame these, use a bola. Tranq arrows work the best but if you don't have any, just club it. Do NOT slingshot it, that will kill it. From there, it likes meat and depending on the level you may need a couple stacks, so get to killing all the weak dinos in a 15 mile vicinity. They won't mind. Now these things torpor drains really fast, but if your at the level where you have tranq arrows you should already have the narcotic engram. Just force feed them a couple of those until they love you! An important thing to note (not just with Pteras but all dinos) is that if you club it while it is asleep, or anything attacks it during the taming process, it will lose taming effectiveness. This will affect the levels and stats it gains from taming, so watch the are you are in and murder any carnivores or birds in the area if you feel they pose a threat.
I tamed one of these. It was a female. It was a beautiful sea green and brown. I let my mom name her and she chose the perfect name for her. Her name was Stella. She was killed saving me life. She fought off 3 rexes. (Killed them all). What killed her was a F***ING COMPY
