A good way to safely tame a Tapejara is to capture it in a Quetzal cage. Dinos will glitch through the cage when the Qeutz is moving, so as soon as you see the Tapejara get in your cage, dismount the Quetz and it will be trapped. Any standard cage design will work as long as the spaces are no more than one wall.
