If you want to get it, don't discover redwood one person. You need your crew, and your sabertooth. Because if they get angry, and if they are hungry, they keeping you and never let you go. Even your sabertooth can't save you. So, you have to take some friend your side. Crossbow or bow, it doesn't matter but, remember, this creature have a really high torpor. If you want to tame, make a trap for them. Then when you catch, you can do everything you want to do as taming. Good luck, if you can have. TIGERS.
The redwoods are now basically a no fly zone, I lost a quetz, and a pter to these bastards. They jump out of the tree, rip you off your mount, and then pin you and your mastercraft armor to the ground and murder you.
Shoot it out of its tree, then pick with argie and drop it into a trap/hole. Cook up some mutton beforehand.
Bred a slick navy blue and silver mutation.
Many surfaces are considered 'vertical' for it to climb, including the southern side of Volcano on The Island, from which you can then pounce back into the redwood, which is the biggest leap I've found yet
