Once I was flying with my lvl 30 pteranodon then I saw my first titani I didn’t know that. I didn’t know it was that deadly so I gave it my a hit to provoke it and suddenly it gave my pteranodon one strike so it died and then I wanted revenge so it went ahead to hit it then it strike me to my grave

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.
To kill pretty much anything on these birds, tame a high level, then pump stam to 3k, then the remainder in melee. Barrel roll into alphas etc. But keep eye on Stam. Never regen Stan on ground, know your ledges!
