These are the best flyers hands down. Tame the highest you can with best Melee and you can clear almost all the caves. I raise health, stamina and melee. My friends with args laughed at me when I beouhht my Ptera for a cave run, they stopped laughing quick and started to beg for eggs.
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
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
This is a MUST have!! I know that u have to upgrade its stamina and weight a lot but it’s a great dinosaur to have by ur side. What I did to tame my pteranodon Sky, is bola him down then bop em in da head with tranq stopes but not to much. Then when he knocked out give him berries, raw meat, fish, and more. ⬆️ For others to see
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.
