These are Arks thugs .. they don't care what you are doing whether it be minding your business or if your just looking to pet a dodo. They will come and they will kill you and your dodo.. Run as far as possible swim as far .carry a bola on you so you trap your friend and escape . @chief3alpha xbox
In a recent PC (and very soon to console) update these little jerks can now pounce on you...and they WILL. Every. Damn. Time. They knock you off mounts and on you to the ground while they gnaw on your bones...mocking you. They’ve knocked me off an argy and therozinos several times. They’re much more deadly now. Upvote so everyone knows about this new ability. PS...alpha raptors ALSO do this.
Whenever u stumble accross one of these just run and try to run it any other creature like a trike diplo a parasaur it will be distracted, use that opputunity to run.do not engage head on unless u have a good armor and weapon
Survival tip: When you are approached by a raptor, find the nearest source of water that is a deep enough for you to be able to swim in. Make sure to swim far out enough just so that the raptor doesn't kill you and mega piranhas do not attack you. It is also safe to go on top of a rock when approached by a raptor and there is no water source nearby.
These guys, for some reason, can't beat turtles. Several times I have seen a 1v1 between a level 30 raptor and level 10 turtle, turtle is barely standing but the raptor goes down regardless. So if you see ONE fighting a turtle, it's a lost cause.
