If you are going to tame one of these with no dinos, be sure to upgrade your movement speed and get tranqs. When you see it whip its tail forwards move to the right you will dodge the shots. This worked for me.
More Thorny Dragon Taming & KO Tips
I built 3x2 stone foundation put stone door ways all around it then I put stairs on one side outside side by side so the dragon can run up
Make it chase you
run up your stairs/ramp
Once it come in run out a door way
Go back on stairs outside n shoot with tranqs
My level 85 took 22 tranqs
Also used same pen to tame X trike n pretty much anything that can’t fit through the door ways
UP IF IT HELPS

Thorny dragon can act as a turret, set tange to high, fill it up with stone so it cant move and set to aggressive. It is beaver version in desert,doesnt collect berries thoe.

They're commonly are in a group of 2 so you have to kill one or knock both.
Traps are not needed if your fast enough or on a cliff next to the dragon(s).
Be sure and name your first Thorny Dragon "Me So Thorny." Epic.
If you have a flyer carry one to a taming pen, it's gonna aggro and start throwing spines at everything it sees the minute it lands. Plan accordingly, and use solid walls so it can't shoot through them.
