When I was still a noob, I was walking around to see a Thera across from me behind a very shallow river. I rode my beloved para that I had many adventures with, (in my mind) the biggest being getting stuck in a rainforest for a few days because I got so distracted trying to tame a pterodon, but learned I needed narcotics. We got attacked my a raptor and found our way out. (She killed the raptor, it was low level) and so, we walked across the river. I thought, "oh it's probably neutral because a territorial Dino would protect itself." ..... Oh dear god was I wrong. I got too close, and the Thera proceeded to chase us as I ran home. Panic made me stupid, because that just led it to our side of the river. It killed my beloved and I ran as fast as I could. It killed me, I respawned at my base, came back for the para saddle and my items, and every time to this day I see a Thera in that area and never dare to set foot there.
This thing is heartless. I made three pens to trap it in but it decided that my trike level 40 (it was level 18)would be nice to give a couple of high fives to. After it killed me 15 times and my trike, I knock it out and at about 95% taking complete a sarco comes and eats it despite me kababing over and over with spears. I still avoid them 20 levels later. Trikecycle will not be forgotten for his sacrifice
This is the fear turkey. The fear turkey does not give a fuck. Stay out of the fear turkey's way and you will not have to learn why it is called the fear turkey. It will kill you. That's why they call it the fear turkey.
