Such a pain in the arse...To tame that son of a biatch you need so many dodos.Make it rain dodos.OR knock out your paracher and let it finish it of to get a big "boost" at the taming progress.Then you got your own hunting dog...why you ask?You can tell him to search for dinos,traps and (i think)players.Once he spots the think you want a mark in your screen is appearing for a trap or dino.Usefull but sooooooo difficult to tame.
At lvl 72 with flak armor on, a lvl 5 Troodon knocked me out with one attack at night. Last thing I saw was those glowing eyes before passing out. My Guess is that they attack vital organs. Luckily my Doedicarus was up for a game of baseball and launched that little devil out into the stands.
