These guys are fast as fuk and will catch up to you. On places like scorched and in the red woods be prepared to encounter HUNDREDS OF THESE. They'll easily swarm you if you try to run away and you'll die if you run on foot. Like on the giga page "If you encounter one of these with a friend, Bola your friend and run"
I live in a rag server on SW a zone. Outside my house they are everywhere. Every turn I make, they are there. They travel in groups, where they range from level 20 to 160. If I leave my house without bolas these satan parrots will eat me alive. I spend day and night killing the birds as soon as I get them alone, then the Al Capone of terror birds send in another gang of them. Help me.
Not only did one kill my me and Parasaur mount (we never stood a chance), my computer froze trying to respawn. This is the first time Ark has crashed my computer. I’m convinced the Terror Bird did this. They are learning how to terrorize us outside the game. AVOID AT ALL COSTS BEFORE THEY ESCAPE THE MATRIX!
If your trying to find these big versions or dodos I recommend looking around the redwoods. My base is there and every time I hear my dinosaurs attack it says “your Rex-lvl 87 - has killed a Terror Bird!
