If you are gonna use commands that will stop the high level alpha rex that you dropped your quetzal onto killing it then make sure you aren’t aiming at your current dinos hitbox, I lost a lvl 180 tapejara that way. Also if no mutton or Rex kibble is available just use prime, raw meat takes way too long
The fun way is to jump off and grapple to your argie and whistle it to attack and since argies are slow it won’t catch up in time so tranq till it goes out also bring parachutes and consider liking so more people will know
If you manage to knock a quetzal out, try starve taming. If you never tried starve taming it’s just leaving a Dino’s hunger go to half way or lower and then you start feeding. I’ve done this many times and it’s very useful taming trick.
