ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
When knocking pteranodons out, be sure to have a bola, it doesn't take many tranq arrows to knock it out. Once it is down, put spike walls up around it (with a little space so you can go in and out) so it doesn't lose taming efficiency or die.
More Pteranodon Taming & KO Tips
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
/\ so noobs can know
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)

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.

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
Use bio toxic to keep them sleep they wake very fast you get bio toxic from killing jellyfish
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.
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
Ok so basically just 1.craft bolas 1 or 2 will work they last 30 secs each and they cost basic matierials 2.get a bow and tranq arrows bows u unlock at lvl 5 or 6(i believe)tranq arrows u unlock at lvl 21 3.U want to unlock its saddle before taming believe me ik u unlock the saddle at lvl 38 if u dont unlock the saddle first ur just gonna focus on leveling up and nothing else so u wont get anything done 4.Use dodo kibble unlock the cooking pot and so u get some xp do the pursuit for it also the dodo kibble works best 5.then once u have everything u wanna get some bio toxin u can kill cnidarias to get it but be careful 6.Now just knock it out and when the torpor gets low feed it a bio toxin have a good time=) -JJ (just tell all ur friends so they can have a pt too)
