If it's flying just fly up to it then eat a rare flower then have it chase you to a taming pen or Dino pen it stops attacking when the effect wears off. The pen does need to be fully enclosed then tranq away. Stupid easy tame no bolas or ghillie needed just make sure to fly high and come straight down to your pen as other animals will Agro from rare flower effect.
How to tame a tapejara:
1. If female pick up egg /male eat rare flower
2. Bola it
3. Shoot with sleep arrows or hit with fists
4. Feed it meat, prime meat, fish meat or prime fish meat.
(Tamed mine with meat and prime meat)
5. Enjoy your weird pterodactyl (tapejara lol)
I was looking for a Tapejara and I have been for the past five days and I came across one. Then all the sudden I look to my right and I see a Alpha Carno charging at me. R.I.P my poor Pterodactyl whom I had just tamed that day. Never got the Tapejara any tips for my terrible luck? 1 like= One prayer for me.
If you try to bola the Tapejara but miss, it’ll fly into the skies... and will stay in the skies! Bring Rare Flowers before trying to tame one just in case.
The way I tame Tapejaras is I bola it, and then I build a row of 5 Dino Gateways with gaps in between over the Tapejara, and then I close off the entrances with Dino Gates. Then, I’ll tranq it out.
If I miss the bola and the Tapejara takes off, then I’ll build the trap anyways, and leave the doors open. Then, I’ll fly up to the Tapejara, eat a rare flower, and lure the now aggressive Tapejara into the trap. I’ll dismount my flier (and leave my flier in the trap), quickly exit the trap and close the doors, and then wait for the Tapejara to stop attacking my mount. Then I’ll knock out the Tapejara.
These are the easiest methods I know of to tame a Tapejara. I hope this helps!
ARRRRRRRGH I just had THE WORST taming experience! Pro tip: DON'T try taming a high level one by dangling from an argy by a grappling hook... You'll end up dying TWICE and losing your argy, guns, and 80 narcotics... >:( :(
Extremely difficult to tame. Best options are to bola it, and then use a longneck rifle with tranq darts. Otherwise trying to get it to fly into the side of a cliff and get stuff is the other option for a solo tame.
