Take Care when searching with flying Mounts for Ovis. They can throw you Off and Paralyse your bird for several seconds. In combination with Packs of wolves this can be your and the birds Ende. I am speaking of experience.
When they are Buried you May See a small mountain.
If your a low level and you know that you will be raided from others in the same position tame one of these dirt kittens to use as a "important item chest" if you are afraid it will be found don't be you are the only one that can see the dirt mound and they use less food while underground
In the north looking for a pure white wolf for an hour - finally found one went down on my argent to pick it up then bang I'm off my bird and the wolves are eating me and my best bird :( f***ing badger
Use a Quetzal to pick it up. Make sure you have two people on 2 different birds for a better chance at grabbing it. Its also good in case the first Quetz loses its rider and is being attacked. Drop into a room that it can't damage and tame away. You could also have someone carried by a Pteranodon but it isn't safe because it could hit the person being carried which will then fall to his/her death. Happy taming!
Just a suggestion, once tamed pump health and always keep it on neutral.
Why? Once me and my friend tamed a purlovia and named him stinky and we tamed him along a bunch of mammoths and yitranusus and argentavesis and then when it was tamed I set him on passive. So it became night time and we made a little campsite cause we did not see where to go so it was useless to go back to the base. But what I did not know is that all the mammoths were blocking the purlovia and we did not notice that the purlovia was in the river so we are chilling until the purlovia was killed by GOD DAMN piranhas. If I'd just put him on neutral he wouldn't die because he can just ONE shot those piranhas witch is weird because I ALWAYS put my games on neutral to wreck anything that attacks me or them and not aggro on random creatures. And sure you can always put some health and melee damage so they beacome even more gangsters and wreck anything in their way. See you out there people! AND WRECK THOSE PIRAHNAS!
If placed as defense make sure that they are always on aggressive since tribe mates tend to whistle passive on all tames . If an enemy finds this as an obstacle since he can't see it and if it's in passive they can rocket it out of the ground and steal your hidden loot .
It's is a knok out tame and they pop out of the ground and look like saber tooth tigers I fond them mostly in the red wood forest they can be used as land mines or hidden loot stuff players not in your tribe can't see it in less they use troodons the only way to kill them if they are in the hole is with explosive.
