These things will be your torturers in the early game, as they have a pounce ability that can knock you off your mount or pin you to the ground. However, they are suceptible to Bolas. For this reason, always keep Bolas in your hotbar. Alternitively, you can just level your Movement Speed to 112%, where you can just barely outrun it by sprinting.

To tame, just Bola and use a Slingshot or Tranq Arrows to knock out. Feed it meat.

Raptors are good early meat hunters, but they don't have much use otherwise.
